    I worked at Trianz full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Only reasons I can think of to take a job with Trianz are if you: 1) are new to the industry and trying to get some work experience, or 2) have absolutely nowhere else to go.

    Cons

    Trianz is a prime example of a small-minded, small-time company trying to make it into the big leagues, who has none of the machinery in place to make it happen.

    There is pretty high employee turnover at Trianz and you have to wonder why that is. While I worked there I saw people who either left on their own or were let go with no warning for not "fitting into the company culture", "not being willing to stretch themselves" etc. Read this as Trianz hiring people they MIGHT have a need for in a client engagement but then it falls through, or asking their employees to take on roles they aren't trained for at all in order to be billable. These are not good corporate / consulting practices, needless to say, and eventually both employees and clients figure it out. What goes around comes around.

    Also, Trianz middle to upper-level management is a very clique-y closely held kind of group, where you will get in if you fit certain parameters and can successfully kiss up to management. Don't let them fool you that this is in any way a meritocracy - I have worked for those types of companies and this ain't it! Bonuses may be promised but rarely delivered. I saw newly hired managers who could play the game get on the inside track within months, while other non-political animals just continued to slave away long hours without any obvious success.

    Also READ the positive reviews for the company very carefully. You will find that many of them are so obviously fake, down to the same themes and even the exact same phrasing, that you may want to discount them completely. I will be watching to see if after this post, there is suddenly a spatter of "positive" reviews that dismiss or counter some of the issues I have raised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Dissolve the company and start all over. Your operating practices as well as ethics are so flawed that I can't see how Trianz will be successful in the long-term, as clients figure out they are not getting services and results they are paying top dollar for. There are a lot of reputable and ethical consulting companies out there to choose from!

    Pros

    Generally good intentions and smart people. Some good mentoring happening but sadly there is little effort to retain the talented leaders.

    Cons

    Lots of talk with little "wood behind the arrow". Haven't figured out who they want to be as a company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to figure out what your company values and culture is and head in that direction....hire leadership who support that direction. It appears that what you want to be does not sync with who you are as a company.

    Pros

    Execution and Client experience is the 'Mantra' at Trianz. The new leadership team that has come on board is highly committed and strives hard to deliver a seamless experience to clients starting with Business Consulting through successful project delivery. I see Fortune 100 clients acknowledge the difference they experience working with Trianz

    Cons

    As with any small Organizations, mistakes can be very expensive which could impact the brand. The CEO and the board recognized that and have now assembled a very strong finance, delivery (Consulting and IT Services) and business development leadership with strong credentials; results in the last 2 quarters looks amazing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Organization need to continue to attract and retain Top Talent, build on the success achieved with strategic clients and keep growing !

    Pros

    If you are a place where mediocrity is the norm and stupidity is celebrated, this is the place to be. 14 years of being around and its unbelievable how they are still in business. The management is bunch of ex wipro who think they are making a KPMG since the CEO is an Ex KPMG.... If you are lazy and have no salable skills this is the place for you.

    Cons

    For a 500 people company way too many managers. Do not trust any promises they make. they will keep none. Compensation other benefits or immigration related... This company is a fraud. Their management team changes every 12 to 15 months and for the people who are lifers, probably no one will hire them in the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get real and shut shop before you are forced to do so. You do not know how to do consulting or IT delivery, maybe body shopping, but even that you are not capable of .
