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.

    I have been working at TRC Companies

    Pros

    Just outside of the city, generally an easy communte. Company has an overall good rank. Flexible schedule (great if raising a family).

    Cons

    Offices are small and broken up at different locations based on speciality. This creates difficult communicating when different offices are working on different aspects of a project. Has more of a family business feel due to so many outside relationships. Poor organization of references and other useful items. Ineffective introduction and training for new employees. Reviews are not as effective as they should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need better management skills and time management skills. Office should be better organized. There are too many personal relationships.

  2.  

    Fantastic, talented workers. Poor management, conflicting objectives, and leaders lack integrity, intelligence.

    I have been working at TRC Companies full-time

    Pros

    The talented people that actually do the work! TRC has intelligent, innovative technical professionals. extremely skilled and solving problems and crafting solutions for clients.

    Cons

    Utilization is top priority and focus. Integrity, quality, safety, service all take back seats to the almighty U. Internal BS makes it extremely difficult to perform job for the client. Regional and office P&Ls make collaboration difficult if not impossible. Bonus' are based on solely on value to the office manager, unit leader, not value to the company. TRC is run like lots of separate tribes with lack of common purpose or vision. Believe CEO is trying to change this, but metrics don't motivate changing behavior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people. Practice what you proclaim. Be honest with yourselves and employees.
