I worked at Trilliant Networks full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Was vibrant, in its day. Something to be said about a different business plan each day. The "can do" facet of this environment was invigorating.

Cons

Big company attitude in small company shoes, seems to have lost its way when taking corrective action from the idea a day regime that did exist. They had every opportunity, still do.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Become the good part of start-up culture again. Take some risks and break out. Bring in some motivated talent and then motivate them further. Don't comply to the market that has been set by others. Create it. Get ahead of the game as you once did.

    This is a top heavy company. All managers and hardly anyone doing real work

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    I worked at Trilliant Networks full-time

    Pros

    - An opportunity to learn about smart grids if you're proactive.
    - Some people can leave the office or not come in and nobody will notice

    Cons

    - HR is unprofessional, unfriendly, and slow to respond to e-mails or may never respond
    - Managers don't know how to manage a team and get the most out of their workers
    - The culture is depressing. Communication is minimal and motivated workers are non-existent
    - Workers are underpaid 30% below industry standard
    - Do not expect annual raises

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stride to helping the team grow and work efficiently. If you don't care about the company or employees, your employees won't care either.
