  1. "Company is great for putting you to work and over promising. Very much talk and very little action."

    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at TransAct Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great learning capabilities in every department. Cross coordination with a range of associates on a daily level to have a full understanding of processes from start to finish.

    Cons

    Associates are disposable, easily replaced, and office politics are very much in play. Many many people feel "stuck" and unable to actually voice opinions on strategies to better departments/structure and every day responsibilities. Very closed door culture, but unable to take suggestions on the struggles of bettering the environment. HR is there simply for benefits and on-boarding, forget trying to resolve in office issues. Associates having tenure are very much content with maintaining same job structure as years ago, and even lessening responsibility to pass onto newer hires. Company truly takes advantage of hard working employees and continues to test them each and every step of the way across all departments. Smoke and mirrors.

    I worked at TransAct Technologies full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relatively positive atmosphere among fellow employees

    Cons

    Hyper focused on procedure and protocol, little top-down respect/appreciation for employees, not enough experimentation, meetings are too frequent and contain irrelevant content, pay/management structure is archaic, I thought the CEO was having an aneurysm during more than one meeting.

    I worked at TransAct Technologies

    Pros

    Really great company culture, opportunities to travel and learn about various industries, emphasis on collaborative efforts, chance to touch many different business segments

    Cons

    Not the greatest location, company emphasis shifts often as to what product is at the forefront which can be difficult to adjust to quickly, not a huge company with a formalized training stucture

    I worked at TransAct Technologies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The speed with which decisions were made was excellent. They acted as soon as they decided.

    Cons

    Their Software Engineering Management is abysmal. They do not follow Software Development best practices. The management is constantly changing architecture and design while the coding is going on. There is no peer review and release and test are performed simultaneously. There is a complete absence of code documentation. It is written after the fact and there are absolutely no release notes. Testing is not supposed to be an afterthought or cutback when the schedule gets tight. It is an integral part of software development that needs to be planned and they perform no integration testing.

    I worked at TransAct Technologies full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A small company and its easy to stand out and make a difference. Ideas can be heard and there are very few layers of management.

    Cons

    CEO is too involved in everything! If he doesn't like an individual personally, your career is done. The quality of work is not as important as his personal feeling toward an individual.
