    Pros

    Solid company with lots of growth and a global reach. If working in the right division there is a lot of good people, good management and opportunity for growth. 401K match @ 100% for the first 4% is also a great plus.

    Cons

    Lots of outsourcing going on right now with IT, Development, and Data Storage. Also pushing entire business to SAP which may not make sense for all units. Pay is average and health care leaves a lot to be desired.

    Advice to Management

    Trust in the talent that you have and trust that they know their business needs. A standard out-of-the-box solution such as outsourcing and moving to SAP may "save money" on paper but at what cost?

    Pros

    Great sales training, great tools, great opportunity

    Cons

    Its a factory and your a disposable COG. Incredibly cold. Some of the worst management I have ever seen. They hire anybody and dispose of those they shouldn't have hired to start with. Does that sound efficient?

    Advice to Management

    Start treating people LIKE people. Not disposable assets.

    Pros

    Solid company to work for. They really care for their employees. I feel like a valued member of the team when contributing.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a grind. Can feel like the same old thing day after day. Management could use a little help with how they manage senior reps. Little bit to hands on at times.

    Advice to Management

    Chill out. Leave senior reps alone. Raise the base salary substantially if you don't want people to leave after a few years of success.

    Pros

    8-5 position. A lot of PTO and sick time to use throughout the year

    Cons

    No opportunity to move up to management or other positions other than sales. No opportunity to work remote. Low salary

    Advice to Management

    Too much micro-management. Need to identify better qualified leads

    Pros

    good 401k matching and the on boarding & training process is great.

    Cons

    Health care, no room for advancement, despite growth they keep making budget and bonus cuts, "open door management" doesn't really mean anything and the fact you work in the middle of a cornfield with old dirty carpeted walls isn't the ideal work environment for most. The job is also very very very seasonal leaving January-April pretty miserable as you are virtually screamed at for calling during tax season and August-October are more deadlines so you are only left a few decent months to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more competitively with the rest of the technology industry and invest more trust and responsibility into your employees. Also, upgrade the building or start a remote office near a more thriving area to keep quality talent longer.

    Pros

    There are some great and supportive people that work at TR. My boss is awesome and has helped my career immensely.

    Cons

    The corporate edicts are tough to take and there are lots of them. I have just lost faith in this company and their ability to truly serve customers and value their employees. The employee voice has been lost as well, you either take what is handed down or you leave, those are the only options.

    Advice to Management

    There isn't much to say, all local control has been lost so it's pointless to give advice.

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, great people, mentoring program, opportunities to try things outside your job description, opportunities to work from home, generous perks, recycling programs, popcorn machines

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season, some entrenched managers, career planning is something you have to make sure you take charge of yourself, profitable business lines have to support less profitable ones.

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep some of the small-company feel that we used to have before becoming a multi-national.

    Pros

    Lots of work and always hiring. You'll almost always have something to do especially during tax season. Good opportunities to move around and the grow/learn (they paid for 80% of my MBA). Extremely flexible schedule in the development department.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime. Since the company focuses on tax and accounting there is lots of OT especially in the support department. Be prepared for OT in the range of 225-325 hours per year depending on where you work. Inflexible schedule in the support department.
