I have been working at TriNet Group full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

The group benefit plans are low-cost and with many options. The company is growing tremendously and now offers an ESPP plan too. 401-k matching is vested immediately.

Cons

Tremendous amount of politics and favoritism. Lots of in-fighting. Morale is low as many people work long hours for unrealistic deadlines. Management is terrible on communication. Big on vision, no direction on execution. Contributors are confused about goals, in the dark about why they are doing what they've been asked to do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Empower your employees. Top-down management does not fly anymore. Build a sense of "we're in this together" and you'll get so much more out of your talent. Be bold, be brave. Remove the divide between "management" and "worker bees", and you're sure to find gold.

    I have been working at TriNet Group full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good pay and health benefits. But they have to pay good to keep anyone decent.

    Cons

    You need to be part of the inner circle to get promotions. Telemarketing environment. Micro managing at it worst! More concerned managing your number of calls made, than your actual results or revenue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue! Sales professionals don't need to be micro managed, they need leaders and encouragement. Set clear expectations. Stop saying one thing, and doing another.
