I have been working at TRC Companies

Pros

There's room to grow for self-starters, and a lot of flexibility in structuring your career path. You work with some talented people across the country, and with cross-discipline teams comprised of folks from private and public sectors. It's a good place for people who want to manage their own careers and who don't need much feedback or support from their superiors.

Cons

Management and human resource decisions are made ad hoc and then incompletely communicated to staff. Human resources staff and benefits change annually. Internal IT services are not dependable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Over the past five years, almost three quarters of the employees in the businesses TRC bought up have left company to found their own businesses. They seem to be doing quite well. Maybe there was something you could have done to retain those employees or to attract employees of that caliber to the company?

    I have been working at TRC Companies

    Pros

    Depending on where you work - nice people, opportunities to grow if you take it in to your own hands.

    Cons

    Like other companies who have grown by aquiring smaller companies - they seem to have bought up some high-quality companies and then not utilized any of the tools that made those companies so successful.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When people continuously come to you with the same, valid complaints - listen to them. Also, high-quality employees get discouraged and less motivated when surrounded by incompetent employees and PMs. Why be motivated to work hard when people around you slack off and still get the same salary and are not reprimanded for poor behavior and/or work?

    I worked at TRC Companies full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Walked in and asked if they need an intern, was hired as an Engineer Intern a month later.
    They notice talent when they see it.
    Interesting work.
    Good work, life balance.
    Provides opportunity to begin a career after school through relevant experience.
    Pay was just OK. To say no to a paid intern job as an engineering student would be foolish, however.

    Cons

    Boring at times when there was not enough work.
    Once went an entire week without doing any legitimate work.
    Not much training.
    Not challenging enough to convince me to return in the winter.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing you.
