Reviews

Company Culture

Everyone knows and respects one another here. And we are always willing to help each other get the work done.

Freedom to work independently

Being a small company with a lot of work, employees are given multiple opportunities to spread their wings and run with a project.

Internal Communication

Emails are sent out throughout the year about project wins and how they affect us. Bonuses also speak loudly to how the company is doing. More emails throughout the year would be nice though.

Gender Equality

Firm is woman owned.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Employees are treated fairly although, older employees are not expected to learn new technology/software like the younger employees, which puts added stress on the younger employees.

Work-Life Balance

We have a ton of work and when deadlines approach, some overtime is generally needed. Employees are expected to step up instead of hiring additional workers.

Company Image

We just won our largest project ever which is huge for us. It is also a huge project for the City of Chicago which will be highly scrutinized in the public eye.

Job Security

I was given a substantial raise when I moved and bought a house so that they could keep me on staff.

Challenging Work

Projects are always new and different with a variety of design issues that need to be solved along the way.

Inclusive / Diverse

Firm is minority owned.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Instead of having separate sick and vacation time, I would put everything under PTO. I never ever come close to using all of my sick time which just results in me taking extra 'fake' sick days so that I do not lose those hours.

What I like about the company

Everyone knows each other at our company and everyone are friends with each other, hanging out with each other after work, helping everyone meet deadlines, etc. I have watched the company grow throughout the years I have been here in part to my contributions. It is great to work somewhere in which your coworkers are like family and your work has immediate impacts in the company and community.

What I dislike about the company

With the workload that we have had and that we currently have, it would be nice to hire additional people so that employees are not overworked. It would also be nice to hire these people before the projects hit so that we do not have to take time away from our work to help train and bring the new people up to speed in the midst of a deadline.

What is the company culture like at TranSmart/EJM Corporation? Help others make critical decisions by letting them know what it’s like to work here!

Suggestions for improvement

  • I do not feel like there is anything that needs to be improved other than we need to hire additional staff members to handle the amount of work we have coming up with enough time to train them before we get super busy.

What I like about the company

Everyone is always willing to help others out in order to meet a deadline. We all work as a team and we all look out for each other.

What I dislike about the company

The office is sometime to relaxed and not supervised well enough. There are times where some of our employees do not look for work to do and end up just goofing around, and yet no one is aware of this occurring.
