    Pros

    Honest and great company to work for. The people really value your work and also makes you feel important.

    Benefits are not so great, pay could be better, and have to build up hours to accumulate your vacation days.

    I have been working at Transwestern Commercial Services (More than a year)

    Pros

    Medical, Dental, Vision, 401K, Tuition Reimbursement

    Cons

    Working in the wrong department. Discrimination. Submitting for vacation / dental appointments is a crime.

    Advice to Management

    Let departments rate their supervisors and how they run their departments

    I worked at Transwestern Commercial Services part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back work style and not much responsibility. Get a basic overview of the company.

    Pay is brutal. They need to teach interns more about the industry.

    I worked at Transwestern Commercial Services full-time

    Pros

    Company has great benefits and cares about employees. The Midwest director is truly one of the best management professionals I've ever worked with. Connects and advises with people of all ages

    Cons

    Limited growth and capped as a broker in the city I was in. Managing director was also a broker which competed with myself and others.

    Advice to Management

    Integrity needs to improve for those micro managers in smaller cities.

    I have been working at Transwestern Commercial Services full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible in work schedule, they even give you a day off to volunteer somewhere. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Not paid nearly what you are worth. Finding out others in my field are paid about $10-15k more, doing less.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees when they say they are overworked and need help. Shouldn't be expected to work after hours all the time.

    Pros

    Fair compensation and a good work-life balance. Fun place to work.

    Cons

    Not enough one-on-one management for certain departments. One manager oversees too many employees.


  11. Intern

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Paid, Professional atmosphere, great teamwork, focused on success, friendly staff, upper management willing to teach, made you feel important

    Cons

    No real guidance for interns, can be a lot of busy work if you don't put yourself out there, felt disconnected at some times from rest of the office, weak on consistent mentorship

    Advice to Management

    The internship needs a definite guideline. There needs to be a list of things that an intern comes out comfortable with, not just administrative work. Take them from point A to B.
