    I worked at TRC Companies full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    It was pretty laid back and they worked with me on scheduling issues very well.
    Very willing to train people with minimal experience.
    Pretty decent retirement matching from employer.

    Cons

    Low pay for the industry.
    Antiquated bidding methods.
    No clear employee policies in place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be willing to pay higher, get higher quality employees, charge more for your services.

    Former Employee - Part-time Hygienist in Windsor, CT

    I worked at TRC Companies part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked part-time. Tought to get into the office to do necessary lab work with my other full-time commitment.

    Cons

    worked a few 2nd shift jobs where the construction site was sketchy. I would not have worked those sites alone on 2nd shift.

    TRC is a very positive place to work that will contribute to your overall education and advancement.

    I worked at TRC Companies full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The management at TRC is VERY family oriented. For the most part, my experience has been that they're open minded and helpful. My experience here was very positive. My supervisor was trusted me to do my job without micro-managing and with that, it made me want to do a better job.

    Cons

    Petty in-fighting, gossipy, quite a few with immature behavior. Some of the staff are openly rude to clients and in the end, that will hurt the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I'd suggest taking a deeper look at the "work from home" abilities of a few staff members. I'd also suggest monitoring of the computer use for surfing, shopping, games, and IM chats since all of those activities are being abused throughout the day. Employees are well aware of their coworkers and a particular manager who is guilty of this and gets away with it anyway.

    Pros

    Flexibility, 401K, willingness of upper management to listen to ideas and encouragement to put your idea into action

    Cons

    Very few holidays, sometimes people are not all treated the same - it can be very frustrating.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees, even the diamond in the rough has some amazing things to contribute. Get your name out there more. Many people have never even heard of TRC.

    I worked at TRC Companies

    Pros

    TRC allowed me to pursue my interests and clients and was a good place to work. They also provided for decent life balance with sufficient supervisor coordination.

    Cons

    Communication from senior management could have been better. Decisions were made that had major effects on employees without any prior employee communication or requests for feedback.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay closer attention to the only assets you have - people. When making decisions, do not keep the cards so closse to the vest.
