    IT is bad.

    IT Manager (Current Employee) Broomfield, CO

    ProsGreat colleagues, we are collectively fed up with the direction of IT, so camaraderie is prevalent. You can step up and make a mark for yourself rather easily. There isn't much competition for those who are technically proficient.

    ConsCronyism up high, enterprise level business at a medium business level infrastructure, budget is constantly frozen, owned by a private firm who is looking to sell, not improve. Salaries are slightly below average. Raises are rarely 3% or more. Bonuses are always well under your target. Initiatives seemingly change weekly. Lying to executives and business stakeholders is encouraged by management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust those who are constantly in the trenches, they know what it takes to fix IT. Trusting those who play games on the sidelines is not the way, and it is glaringly obvious that you are playing favorites. Most of your true performers/difference makers are all looking to bail.

    Short Experience, job elimination

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsNone as of right now.

    ConsWork Life balance wasn't always a company priority. Training was slow and lacked any documentation. Manager worked remotely and had many other projects and priorities rather than training, or follow up.
    Company closed the Overland Park office and eliminated many positions.

    Great People, Great Industry, Great Company

    Inside Sales Representative (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsWork/Life balance, Inspirational Staff, Great Culture, Definitely a solid industry to get into (Payment processing is a growing industry, and one that is as close to "recession-proof" as it goes). Great comp structure for sales (low base, but GREAT commission potential). Great training program for sales, with dedicated sales trainers (mostly working on the floor with current employees).

    ConsHigh expectations - goals are set, and tools/resources are provided to help you accomplish these goals, but the expectations are clear and high. It's a sales floor... some people are built for sales, and some are not.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep doing what you're doing!! Remember to support the folks that support you.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Excellent Company and Benefits! - You create your success!

    Account Executive (Current Employee) Aurora, CO

    ProsThe sales office is a very supportive environment. Experienced reps are willing to help and share their experience. Positive attitude is a must & the energy is positive! The industry is a challenge to learn. The managers and trainers are very knowledgeable and want to genuinely help you succeed. Outstanding on-going training available. Flex-time and benefits are a real plus!

    ConsLong hours to keep up. Very high expectations.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep the communication open for honest feedback. Attending the recent annual meeting made me even more proud to work for TransFirst.

    TransWorst

    Vice President Sales (Former Employee) Denver, CO

    ProsBright, talented development and technical teams and resources

    ConsIt's run like a puppy mill. Extremely unprofessional, disorganized and lacking relevant, concise business practices. Each department is run likes it's own company, down to their own P&L. What does this mean? In order to sell solutions, you resources and support from every department, and the cost of delivering those services is arbitrarily increased due to each division trying to reach operating capital objectives. Senior management on the sales side is a complete joke, and I mean that in the best possible way. This is what happens when you are owned by a PE firm.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNew CEO needed immediately.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
