    Pros

    Plenty of Flexibility, Fantastic HR Representation -- They go to bat for you and advocate for you towards management -- Such a rarity.

    Cons

    Nepotism runs abound in the Ivory tower. Upper echelon has a deaf ear to the villagers below.

    Advice to Management

    Not will change -- Trend is Trend.

    Pros

    Great products, good people, great benefits

    Cons

    Company believes in keeping people down with little promotion opportunity, management is about paying less and touting company vs. opportunity., Pay is less than standard- Company would rather pay you less than market value and sell you how big it is on family values in my opinion is not true. The only way to get a promotion or a raise in pay is to leave the company and get rehired. The company would rather pay someone they don't know off the street 30% more to fill a position knowing they won't stay and lean of the faithful employees to pick up the slack - Like all companies, it depends on the department. The company believes pay everyone less to take care of the slackers they hired and can't get rid of. The philosophy is to take care of all people, even the non-producers- Very socialist thinking- Great company if you want a job and don't want to produce- Someone will pick up your slack.

    Advice to Management

    Be faithful to the faithful-

    Pros

    Excellent healthcare and insurance benefits.

    Cons

    Unfortunately, of the many negative comments I've read from other reviewers, I recognize them all to be true from my own direct observations. The one thing I dissagree with is comments about there being a good work/life balance. In my view and certainly in my experience, that is not a comment you would hear from most individuals in a sales role. It takes long hours and constant tireless effort to overcome internal obstacles that regularly interrupt sales and sometimes even bring them to a halt. This is were the broken processes and a culture that lacks accountability and ownership of issues. And I have seen some pretty unethical behavior in management.

    Advice to Management

    Publicly insulting and chastising top sales performers who achieved 100% or better quota attainment, but did not qualify for club at the 2015 SKO, even though some of them achieved up124% attainment, is not okay. Just one of the many stunning and disrespectful ways I've seen some hard working individuals treated.

    Pros

    The people at Trend Micro are amazing. They generally are technical, helpful and caring. I found most people wanted to see everyone do well. Sharing knowledge and giving of their own free time to assist each other and the customers.

    Cons

    The ship sales in 20 directions all at the same time. There seems to be a lack of leadership which causes uncertainty.

    Advice to Management

    Trend Micro has an awesome product line along with good people that make it work. Management needs to support those people with a clear and decisive course that can lead Trend Micro to the status it deserves.
