    Pros

    Transwestern has been consistently ranked as one of the best places to work in local, regional and national surveys. Judaeo-Christian values are the bedrock of the company. The company is privately held and their is a very flat management structure. Great cooperation across the platform.

    Cons

    Things can sometimes be a little too much on the entrepreneurial side.

    I have been working at Transwestern full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The pay is at market value.

    Cons

    Bonuses are reserved for salaried employees/ senior management so none of it trickles down to support staff who is doing all of the work. Structure runs like a true boys club so there is zero room for advancement. Workload is not evenly distributed so some people are doing close to nothing (this is often justified due to their seniority) while others are completely bogged down. OT is not paid because "upper management did not approve it" yet you're still expected to work long hours. The culture is terrible and morale is the lowest I have seen, anywhere. Turnover is high although not surprising being that our senior manager is sexist, unprofessional and continues to put down some of the older ladies in the office.

    Advice to Management

    Spend less time flooding employee inboxes with "best place to work surveys" and spend more time paying attention to what is happening at some of these sites.

    Pros

    It was a full-time job.

    Cons

    Horrible upper management. Transwestern is a company that is full of all Chiefs and no Indians. Many people in upper management have no idea how to do simple tasks. Transwestern is a company that lies, cheats and doesn't care about their employee's. It is a company that operates out of nepotism and favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Start being honest and learn what it means to have integrity.
