    I worked at TriNet Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    You work very hard and life becomes entwined with work. If you love this type of life, you with thrive greatly.

    Cons

    I slept with my phone by my side every night and checked my emails as soon as I woke up each day. Very difficult to step away and focus on family.

    Advice to Management

    At some point, you will have to assess whether the health and welfare of employees is as important as the clients dollar. I hear from current and past employees often and things do not seem to get better, just more difficult.

    Pros

    Good opportunity, pleasing working environment. Co-works friendly and most helpful. The training is better than average and they definitely want you to be equipped for success. The technology to support your efforts is above average.

    Cons

    Very bus dress environment . Not necessary. If you are older than 35 you will probably not be considered for employment. Culture caters to those in their 20's and thirties. They are not as diverse as they want you to believe. The hiring managers think they are being progressive in hiring most younger work force but what they are actually doing is supporting ageism. Having a a more age diverse environment would help in their sales initiatives and keeping it real.... I am 30 and was aware of this....

    Advice to Management

    Be more diverse in hiring .... Hiring managers need more training in discrimination.

    I have been working at TriNet Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Dress code is extremely flexible. Work life balance is not too bad. All depends on the manager's moods that week.

    Cons

    No room for advancement in QA area, you are stuck. If you are from another country IE (India or middle Eastern), you stand a better chance in getting bumped up within the company or getting a better position. The salary is way below QA paying standards.

    Advice to Management

    Take classes to learn how to manage other Engineers and stop trying to wing everything especially when you don't know the answer to the questions/problems.

    Pros

    Amazing people and teams, Fantastic culture, Freedom to do what you are passionate about, Cheerful and fast-paced work environment. You can make a real impact here. There are so many open channels in the company that allow you to talk to the CEO directly. I can see myself grow my career quickly with a variety of training and development opportunities made available to 100% of employees. I'm so excited to be here.

    Cons

    Work-life balance could be an issue during busy times. System.

    Advice to Management

    Keep it up!

    Pros

    Great people who are passionate, caring, and professional at the lower levels. Great benefits, fun programs (when they can get their act together)...mostly it's the people and the great product idea.

    Cons

    New VP of HR is unimpressive and pushing a culture of 80+ hr work weeks, doesn't know her HR, and is generally unprofessional, hugging employees, talking down like they're her kids, doesn't give an impression of knowing HR. Lack of product development has lead too many clients to other companies, and it's hard to be measured on client retention if they're leaving because of technology and not my service (though new CTO is promising)

    Advice to Management

    Look at the culture that's being created and decide if you want it - and if you do, then pay for the incredible amount of overtime demanded.

    Pros

    The people are all nice. With one mission to produce.

    Cons

    Managers need to communicate more with their team members. More meetings would be beneficial rather than getting thrown to the wolves.

    Advice to Management

    Sit down with each sales rep and help them one on one. Spend a day with each rep rather than bash them and degrade them. Get to the route of the problem what's not working. Offer assistance. Communicate better from upper management. I had 5 deals go south this year b/c the underwriting department shut them down. Now I'm on probation. Hey I'm bringing in quality companies it's the underwriters that keep shooting them down. My manager does not make me aware of what's going on...

    Pros

    Having been with the company for coming up on 10 years, I can say that growth and new opportunities abound at TriNet. Despite growing pains and the problems involved with growth there is a true sense of comradery between team members. The company also strives to recognize the strength in diversity.

    Cons

    As with any growing company silos exist and sometimes it is difficult to find the right person or persons needed to address a problem. Based on what I am seeing in the current market, pay rates and job titles are not necessarily commensurate with the skill level required. There seems to be some disparity depending upon which functional area the employees work in.

    Advice to Management

    Help to develop a sense of open communication throughout the organization and at every level (up, down, and lateral). Complete a thorough review of market skills versus job duties and pay scale and develop a plan to level both titles and pay grades appropriately.
