    Overall learning experience

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Lisle, IL

    ProsEmployees were easy to work with and are will to assist when needed.

    ConsManagement had attitude and was so fast to yell at you when you ask a question or if a customer asked to speak with them. They had no patience at all.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTraining your managers they need to be more of a people person instead of a do nothing type of person. Who rather sit around and complain and talk about every customer.

    Working at TransCore was very interesting.

    Supervisor (Former Employee) Houston, TX

    ProsThe people were very easy to work with. I found that being a supervisor was easier than I first considered and managing a staff of 10+ proved to be very satisfying.

    ConsWorking with some of the Clients can be tough. Also, the computer equipment should be upgraded. Most of all, the hourly wage should be a lot higher.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest more into your support staff and stop being cheap! Seek to promote from within.

    Horrible!

    Systems Administrator (Former Employee) Orlando, FL

    ProsPay was ok as it was via an agency. one hour lunch.

    ConsExtremely dis-organized. Management do not know what they are doing and the employees get fired for it. High turn over rate.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to do a re-shuffle or get rid of some managers as they are bad for these government contracts. It slows down productivity if workers are not trained properly. when workers are trained properly, then they can be productive and feel more confident.

    Exciting, always challenging, never boring work with a supportive Executive Team and coworkers.

    Engineering Director (Former Employee)

    ProsFreedom to do your job, make your own decisions. Work when you have to work, take time off when you need it, you decide. You get as much responsibility as you want and you can handle. If you are a high performer, the rewards will be there for you. This is a fairly flat organization giving middle managers/project managers direct accessibility to the top decision makers.

    ConsIf you have a position of responsibility, your job never ends. If you like to work, this is great, if you want 8 to 5, forget about it. Lots of travel sometimes for extended periods.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThings have changed since I first started working there. The atmosphere has begun to be more formal and regimented with less control given to middle managers. Also, there is more management. Reverse this trend, it takes away the things that made TransCore unique.

    Substantial hours
    Opportunities to obtain or enhance certain skills

    ConsNo opportunities for career advancement
    Lack of organization
    Lack of leadership
    Management contradicts itself constantly
    "Walking on eggshells" atmosphere

    Senior Field Technician

    Senior Field Technician (Former Employee) Harrisburg, PA

    ProsFreedom and flexibility to perform duties. Often able to make your own schedule as long as your work is completed.

    ConsCorporate ownership demands that more work is done with less people. Benefits have declined in recent years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIncentive programs with measurable results would allow employees to feel like they can make a difference by working smart and be rewarded for their effort.
