    Pros

    For the most part, upper management understands the challenge in selling the solution and remains supportive.

    Cons

    The implementation of micromanagement around number of calls, appointments, etc makes for people focusing on the wrong things.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do more to support your sales team by way of educational marketing to SMB. If you could implement marketing initiatives that focus on reassuring the SMB market that the risks of implementing PEO are minimal and the rewards are great, it would help to overcome the perception in the market place.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I absolutely loved working at TriNet for most of my tenure. Burton's positivity and vision for the future was infectious. I definitely drank the Kool-aide, and I still believe the company will be great. Most of the employees and management are wonderful. I should know as I worked with numerous individual contributors and leaders during my time. While, I would still love to be employed there it was clear to me that even though I was a top performer (and recognized for it too), politics would always stand in the way of me gaining a well deserved pay raise and promotion. I was paid the lowest salary on my team but did twice the work of my colleagues, numbers do not lie. While I was told by my Director and Sr. Manager I would get a raise and promotion on numerous occasions, that did not happen. Instead they promoted someone who had been there only a short period. Myself and colleagues were pretty disgusted at the way our senior leadership treated me. Many of them would like to exit as well.

    Some day I would love to go back, but not until the leadership on my team is gone, and there is more organization. Do not let my review detour you from going to work for the company, as there is a lot of change going on. I think the bad apples will not be there long.

    Pros

    Great pay and benefits (but you earn it!)
    Won't find job variety any place like this industry

    Cons

    unrealistic work load expectations by management
    Need to decide if job is sales or customer service or human resources - there is not time for all

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    stop pretending you believe in work-life balance.....you don't set the example!

    Pros

    The opportunity is vast. There is much to be done and we are making great strides to better our offering.

    Cons

    The company is growing rapidly and is cautious about investing in more headcount. This makes progress slower than it could be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The budget and value of training and building in the workers should be viewed as a must. It is impossible to keep expecting 120% out of your staff without any action to help with training or backups.

    Long sales process at times.
