    I have been working at TMC full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Growing company, great office space, great benefits. TMC does a lot of charity work which I think is great for a “corporate” company. There is a game room with pinball, ping pong, Xbox. The rooftop deck has a nice view and you can play cornhole up there in the summer.

    Cons

    Too many employees who have only worked there for a year or two think they should be promoted when they haven’t paid their dues. There are a lot of entitled kids out of college who expect everything to be given to them just because they want it. There is a lot of great talent at TMC and when new positions open up for advancement and someone doesn’t get the job they think it’s because the culture is rigged against them. I’ve been here for almost ten years and this kind of entitled behavior is a drag on the account teams.

    Pros

    Get your hands dirty in logistics (TMS) Great Christmas party Private Bathrooms Occasional free food

    Cons

    TMC has very high turnover. Why do you ask? A lot of folks here have the same job title with varying amounts of complexity in their role. This ranges from an operations role – upper management. The sad part is no matter how much you do the “opportunity” within the company is “unrewarding” to put it nicely. You will most likely remain in your role longer than anticipated. From the outside looking in TMC seems very promising however you’re mistaken. Opportunity here is wide as an ocean but yet deep as a puddle. If you are a career driven individual I’d highly advise other options. Outside of the company’s name recognition and young crowd, there aren’t many positives that drive staying here long term. Talented individuals continuously pass through like a revolving door. If you are just looking to pay bills to stay afloat then TMC may be a solid option but be aware that you will most likely be underpaid.

    I worked at TMC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Some people here are friendly

    Cons

    Unfulfilling work. Repetitive mouse clicks all day, every day. High turnover. People don't stay here very long, so prepare to do extra work when half of your team quits within a few months. And no, you won't be rewarded for your extra efforts. If anything, you'll be talked down to when you struggle to complete all the added work you're getting. Managers are here to screw you, not help you. Out of a half dozen or so managers I had, only one was a pleasure to work for. The others were condescending and had no clue what they were doing. If you ask them for help you will be ignored, but if you screw up they will stop everything they have going on to lecture you. On top of that, many managers here never miss an opportunity to slack off or break rules they created themselves. Managers are not held accountable at all. There's a ton of construction going on around the building that's pretty annoying to deal with. Sometimes it doesn't feel safe to walk around. Apparently this will be going on for years as the area is in the process of being gentrified. TMC doesn't really allow working from home. WFH is becoming increasingly popular nowadays and more and more employers allow it, but TMC chooses not to budge on this. Limited to no opportunities to advance or earn valuable experience. There's a good chance you'll be stuck at the same role for years. Even if you do move on to something else, there aren't many options. Most of the interesting job openings require a crazy amount of experience and training that employees cannot acquire from working at TMC Most employees here are underpaid. Even worse is there's no clear direction on what you can do to prove yourself to earn more. When goals are discussed, it's completely subjective.

    I have been working at TMC full-time

    Pros

    There are a million places to get lunch in the West Loop.

    Cons

    Promotions/advancement are completely based on arbitrary criteria. There is no path to advancement, it is based entirely on chance, what accounts you're on, who you know, and who likes you. HR is only there to maintain the bottom line and provides no employee support. Pay is on the low end for the industry and there is no clarity of standard pay rates for positions. There is also a max on raises, even with promotions. Very high turnover of tenured employees.
