    4. 3.0
      Current Employee, more than 3 years

      Great place to learn how to become a broker in a controlled environment.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Opportunities to move around. Lots of emphasis on teamwork and spearheading a common goal of success. Goal setting opportunities. Furthering education via means of the internal programs. While a growing company, it still feels tight-knit with familiar faces.

      Cons

      While there are opportunities to move around, a lot of these are lateral moves.

      Pay to Performance

      Apr 4, 2021 - General Manager in Lowell, AR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Transplace offers many paths for self development and has a proven track record for growth.

      Cons

      Pay to Performance has been an adjustment to the Transplace culture as of recent. Many employees do not agree to the change. It makes sense to me as merit should be tied to a job performance and agreed by the manager. I don’t agree with HR adjusting the grading to a lower or higher grade outside the managers input.

    6. 1.0
      Former Employee, more than 1 year

      The most disrespectful company I have ever worked for.

      Apr 12, 2021 - Accounts Payable Specialist in Lowell, AR
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      None...there were some when I first started working there; but, at least in the case of Accounts Payable and Finance as a whole, it just got continually worse, especially at the end.

      Cons

      They give a lot of lip service about caring for and respecting their employees, but nothing could be further from the truth. They don't care about helping their employees grow and move up and the Accounts Payable department was just continually spreading more and more work among fewer people.

      Pros

      Individual performers in the teams trying to do what’s right for customers. Access to training.

      Cons

      The politics that begin at the current CEO. It’s all about favorites and setting up organizations against each other. The culture is toxic; most stronger senior / executive leaders have left in the last few years.
