I worked at TransCore full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

The people are top notch, skilled developers. The work environment is excellent. They are an agile shop and take agile development seriously.

Cons

Corporate politics and programmers with an ego can get in the way. If the business has a downturn, they will cut people without notice.

Advice to Management

Invest in your people, they are the lifeblood of the company. Don't treat them with the same cavalier attitude as you would a piece of furniture.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Good Hours
    Better than being unemployed

    Cons

    Where do I start......First this company's EZ Pass department has been contracted out by the State of Pennsylvania. Transcore has then contracted out their staffing for their customer service call centers to 2 staffing companies. Although the job is 40 hours, the pay starts out at $10 an hour which is on the low end of what a good customer service agent should make. In fact, the management doesn't care or reward good people who provide excellent customer service, they would rather praise representatives who are mean and rude to the public because they feel the more calls that are taken is more important than helping someone who may have a question or a problem.

    Unfortunately the State of PA has turned a blind eye to Transcore and would rather that people who travel the PA Turnpike be made to feel as if they have committed a capital crime if they miss a toll or have a question about EZ Pass because they plain may not know or are visitors from out of state.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees as adults and treat the public as you would want to be treated if you had the same problem.

    I have been working at TransCore full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Very good people who are highly trained and motivated.

    Cons

    Planning structure at the top is weak. The people that are to do the job don't have much say in the job estimate at the beginning. When they are handed the job they are usually behind the eight ball right at the beginning. In some cases the job cannot be accomplished as estimated because the person who estimated the job doesn't know themselves the scope and possibilities of the job.

    Advice to Management

    Get the people who will be doing the job create the estimate to perform the job.
