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

    Pros

    Senior leadership truly cares about and listens to the opinions of everyone in the company. I have been impressed by senior leadership understanding that while we're a technology focused company, it's people who make the difference. Their actions have backed up their words.

    Employees that demonstrate initiative and buy-in are rewarded with advancement opportunities. The Chicago office is in an amazing location in the West Loop.

    Cons

    Career advancement is somewhat limited within the company once you reach management level, but that's not unique to TMC,

    Advice to Management

    You have a great thing going. Don't sweat the small stuff ...having senior leadership meetings to discuss Kleenex policy and dress code distracts from our strategic focus. Engage closely with key customers, understand their needs and develop solutions that resonates with them.

    I worked at TMC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Steady paycheck, benefits are good.

    Cons

    I cannot even begin to explain the cons within this organization. Constant lies to our customers regarding our IT road map and our overall capabilities. TMC is so far behind technology-wise, it makes me wonder what the sales team is saying to procure/retain customers. Get ready to be an email jockey for 8 hours a day. It was not uncommon for me to send 160+ emails a day while juggling the rest of my daily duties.

    The talent is an absolute joke. I came in with an orientation class of about 9 people, all extremely qualified with backgrounds in supply chain. After about a year and a half, I was one of two left. There was (I am sure still is) a mass talent exodus that HR seems to be replacing with people they can get at an extremely cheap hourly rate. I'm pretty sure the last two people I worked with did not have college degrees and keep in mind these people are managing a good portion of a company's supply chain.

    IMPACT model is a waste of time, we spent months on an IMPACT project to see minimal time savings in what we were trying to accomplish.

    Pay is a joke. When I accepted the job, I took a pay cut because I thought that this growing company had something going and could result in a huge raise later on down the line. The result? They degraded everyone's job title and bumped them to hourly employees. If you want a stepping stone in logistics, aim for the carriers like JB Hunt or Schneider, they are least pay you a respectable salary.

    Office environment is bad. Huge cubicle farm. They don't even allow you to wear headphones (and yes they actually enforce it). As trivial as that is, what company makes a rule like that?

    Just don't work here.

    Advice to Management

    Whoever is in charge of talent acquisition...fire them. 4 panels and IMPACT are outdated and a waste of time, I worked on site with the customer and they laughed when they heard about both of these.

    I worked at TMC (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    TMC was a company full of joy a few years back. Joyous occasions shared by TMC employees. We enjoyed working for the company then. The joy of putting smiles on the faces of our customers. The joy of an engaged workforce. Those were the days. We had a culture that most loved back then.

    Cons

    The joy has faded and working for TMC has become less enjoyable. The company is trying to find the culture that was once celebrated. Joy in the office is down and I could not figure out why. It pained me to see the joy being ripped from such a vibrant company. As you all start to look around, you must ask—-what happened to the joyful TMC culture. The answers may be right under your noses.

    Advice to Management

    Someone take the wheel or this joyride is bound to crash.

    Pros

    You can coast by or be recognized for hard work. Your choice.

    Cons

    Too many to list. Our platform doesn't work, yet we keep selling it to customers who in turn are frustrated that they cannot acheive their goals with a broken system. We are forced to tell customers that "we have tickets in with IT to fix the problems" but fixes never get implemented or put in place. HR is a joke. They've ignored complaints of harassment, especially regarding minorities. Raises never come. Promotions are only allowed after jumping through hoops and crossing enough red tape to strangle yourself. Global leadership and Core team is highly out of touch with reality.

    Advice to Management

    Fix the system. Fix your culture. You need to purge, because the ship is basically sunk at this point.

    I have been working at TMC full-time

    Pros

    The CEO is a very friendly person who is willing to get to know anyone who wants to come in and have a one on one conversation. A good portion of the office are easy to work with and have a very positive attitude.

    Cons

    There isn't a very well defined advancement structure. At a current point there is no where to go unless you want a lateral move. With a lateral move or even a year end raise there isn't much opportunity for a pay bump. On the other hand, the training that is available is very rudimentary. For example Excel skills, introductions to different positions in the company, etc. There isn't much technical growth or industry knowledge growth. Also, you have to be careful of which team you are placed on. Some teams can be very difficult, internally and externally.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more comprehensive training, advancement, and payment structures to help retain and attack more talent.

    Pros

    Used to be a great company, where passionate and hungry people strove for excellence.

    Cons

    Everyone knows that the company is struggling with a mass talent exodus. Reason? more emphasis on spending a lot of time talking about how things should be done v/s actually doing something. All recent positive reviews are fake.

    Advice to Management

    Do something before it's too late.
