    Pros

    Trilliant Networks is a smart grid company and some find that cool and trendy. The building in Redwood City, CA is attractive. The office is very modern with a lot of glass. The weather in Red Wood City is very special (even for the bay area). It's close to the Oracle building which is a nice place to have lunch and go for a walk at lunch time.

    Cons

    Lay-offs frequent. Top heavy with Management. Some promotions happen, but not many. Payed time off (PTO) is 10 days a year regardless of whether your sick or on vacation. 50+ hours a week but paid on salary to avoid OT pay. Training was very minimal and of poor quality. Salaries are low and a raises only happen when forced in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    If customers can't easily get the support they need to make the product work, then they will find another option. Making customers pay for support ultimately hurts sales. With regard to promotions, someone who has functioned at a lower level often knows the inner working of that department better than an outsider who's never worked at the company. We people see that salaries and low and promotions are infrequent, the smart one move on.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took a dayinterviewed at Trilliant Networks (Redwood City, CA) in January 2014.

    Interview

    At the time, Trilliant had just acquired SkyPilot Networks. Trilliant interview the SkyPilot employees and then selected which they would keep and which the would dismiss. 90 percent of the employees where let-go. In fact, those who moved to Trilliant were let-go from SkyPilot and re-hired by Trilliant. The interview process was simple, the department manager was the only interview. I'd had the job previously and so they new I was qualified. Neither HR nor the Support Manager new enough about wireless, networking or SkyPilot to ask any tough questions.

    Interview Questions

    • Believe it or not, the HR director asked me a lot of questions about Star Trek. I'm not joking.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    There was no negotiation. I was told that all former SkyPilot employees being transitioned to Trilliant would receive there former salary -10%
