    I worked at TransCore part-time

    Pros

    The pros are a paycheck and working with a few nice people.

    Cons

    The cons are too many to list, but most important is how poorly management treats employees. Constantly being told you're replaceable isn't good for employee morale.

    Advice to Management

    A "supervisor" title does not give you the right to bully employees.

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

    Pros

    None that I know of.

    Cons

    This company cares about one thing and one thing only-their bottom line. I had a supervisor up until last January who did the same thing as the job as I was doing and a veteran as well. Last January there was a shifting in management and responsibility to someone who was in a call center and saw and communicated with us ONCE. Fast forward to last April and I was let go for unsubstantiated reasons due to a paranoid tech reporting false accusations.

    Advice to Management

    Hire management who are relative to the field and not figureheads. Care about the fact that for 15 months I invested my blood sweat and tears in this company and not let people go at the itch of a trigger because your bottom end has a rash on it.

    Pros

    Management is engaged and knowledgeable. Good people for the most part.

    Cons

    Always in crisis mode. Upper mgmt has their favorites despite known incompetence and unprofessionalism.

    Advice to Management

    Hire based on ability, not social climbing.

    I worked at TransCore full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They allowed people to be creative in ways to generate revenue. I had a guy create a program to mine the motor carrier database to create leads.

    Cons

    The cubicle you lived in. I believe it would've been a lot more proactive to get the management and the sales reps together to collaborate on how to get more customers.

    Advice to Management

    First of all give high producing sales reps the opportunity to move around within the company instead of keeping them in one spot just because they're good at it. Secondly, have an open door policy that is really an open door policy.


  10. "Conservative in advancement, but a good place to work"

    I worked at TransCore full-time

    Pros

    A healthy culture that doesn't overdo bureaucracy or meetings, management that will mentor you over time once you've won their trust. You will likely switch between the company's many different projects a lot - this isn't for everyone but I enjoyed the variety. Hours are reasonable and the rules are light-handed so long as your work gets done. The people in the Atlanta office are nice and easy to get along with. The traffic software you work on feels meaningful with obvious real applications.

    I was there for years and turnover was very low.

    Cons

    Somewhat slow in adopting the latest development technologies and frameworks, though this was changing in my last year or so there (Old technologies are unavoidable with so many legacy products - some of which they were in the process of replacing - so they can't be entirely faulted for this). Pay is on the low end for the industry and you'll advance slowly.

    I wavered between four and five stars and rounded up to five. But for some people these cons will be more important.
