    I worked at TriNet Group full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for an organization under the TriNet umbrella, Break the Cycle. The people that work there are great. They have the best intentions, and all truly believe in the work that they're doing. The passion is real.

    Cons

    There was an Executive Director who decided to up and leave the organization, which put a lot of things into a downward spiral. The passion is there, but it's hard to work when you're always asking questions.

    I worked at TriNet Group as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    The people on assignment with me were very nice as was my interviewer/hiring manager.

    Cons

    As a contractor, I felt no regular/permanent employees outside of the contractors wanted anything to do with me/us.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider hiring contractors/temps on who do well for you on assignment.

    I have been working at TriNet Group full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There's no denying that TriNet gives back to the communities where they have a sizable presence.
    I'm going to a tropical location, all expenses paid, and should come back with a nice tan for smashing quota!
    Our customer service managers are TOP NOTCH. If it weren't for them, retention would be extremely horrid!
    Caffeine is supplied, major bonus to me.
    Stock options if you qualify!
    Did I mention the tan?

    Cons

    I may be getting a nice tan, but I know for a fact our service teams DESERVE something on par!
    Inter-brand squabbles - fighting over who is in charge of what opportunity or SIC code. Same team right?
    Everyone seems so concerned about pecking order. Let's worry about our company values and clients!
    We had great sales leads on competitors clients at one time, and those tenured sales mgrs who were connected or smart (or tipped off in advance that they were going away, albeit temporarily) made many copies and distributed to staff like I did. I give these to newbies who are getting frustrated, and as rewards. Bad leads now: correction horrible leads now.
    Underwriting isn't as aggressive as it used to be.
    For a tech company, we need bleeding edge work tools. Our antiquated tools don't cut it anymore.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to myself (regional)? I could use a dose of humility at times and I think we ALL can. What would I advise executive management? To invest invest invest in LONG TERM morale lifters with an emphasis on the ops side. I am very appreciative of my health commissions and trips, but my service folks languish in long hours with almost laughable compensation packages. I let some of my folks go home early of Fridays, but I hear horror stories in other offices in the same city. TriNet is not my life. I am very fortunate to have this job however. We used to be feared as the rising star in the PEO world after the acquisitions and mergers. I have to say that the luster has dimmed slightly but not to the point we don't still shine! I believe I've said everything in a constructive fashion. I'll even be the change agent. A new year. A new leaf.

    I have been working at TriNet Group

    Pros

    The company I work for is small, and has a very relaxed environment. I work with others who are very knowledgeable about the field we are in. Greatk work-life balance

    Cons

    Not too many cons. The only con would be that there isn't much room for growth.And the managers aren't too involved with managing meaning someone may get bigger workloads while others slackoff

    Pros

    The culture at TriNet allows and encourages employees to meet their potential while maintaining a great work/life balance. I like the team I work with and my management team is very supportive.

    Cons

    My major issue with TriNet is a lack of Red Bull. Red Bull is the life blood of a sales team and I feel it should be raining from the skies. (not literally of course, that'd make a mess)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    More Red Bull

    Pros

    TriNet focuses on more than your position's quota and invests their time digging into your professional goals as well as personal goals. The work-life balance is excellent. Leadership makes sure that you are given the tools you need to succeed and will assist in getting you to the next level if you show drive and determination.

    Cons

    I have not yet come across anything negative.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure you keep to the challenging and rewarding culture. Employees appreciate when their Managers are willing to jump into the trenches and work alongside of them.

    Pros

    You are rewarded very well for achieving and exceeding company goals and quotas. Great team environment, colleagues willing to help you, often times selflessly. Fun departments and events. Great room for growth

    Cons

    It can be stressful. Hard work. Long hours. But the challenges help to refine you, personally and professionally, at least they did for me.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to encourage stretch goals, recognize potential and provide the incentives to keep people motivated.
