    Pros

    Company values, team work, thinking ahead, client success are some of the key inspiring factors at Trianz.

    Cons

    Cons are overshadowed by the pros of working here. Complainers are let off easily, need a stronger hand to deal with them.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to forge ahead with the the determination and foresight that you demonstrate notwithstanding the odds on the way. As always focus on the end goals, client success, quality of work and providing a great challenging work environment. AHEAD TOGETHER.........

    Pros

    Great company to learn Consulting and IT Services domains. Very accomplished and caring management team lead by Sri. Have been working with the company for 8 years and have cherished every moment here. Every year here has been great from learning and growth perspective. Most of the folks around are the cream of other large companies they have worked with earlier so good learning experience for everybody. Very nice culture and everybody really likes working with each other.
    The basic value system of the company is very strong and we have been doing great over the last few years.

    Cons

    Not a large company like Accenture and Infosys (but not small either)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and keep building the momentum

    Pros

    - Good for anyone looking to get into consulting
    - Organization is good at investing in training for individuals even when there is no readily deployable project

    Cons

    - No consulting capabilities; the organization is made out of a bunch ex-MBB and ex-Big Four, but they don't seem to bring any of the structure or capabilities of their previous firms
    - No strategy for growth; the organization grew because of one client (CISCO) and has not find a 2nd or 3rd client to counterbalance

    Advice to Management

    Option 1 - Divest the organization
    Option 2 - Work on the cons by focusing on a more select set of service lines and capabilities
    Option 3 - Do both; start with 2 and then do 1

    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 Management

    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 Management

    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.

    No new clients
    No bonus
    Plagiarized intellectual property
    Weak management
    Retirement options for their board
    A CEO who doesn't realize you actual need to make profits to run a company
    No value for the right talent and all people want is to suck up

    Advice to Management

    Hire professionals not a retiree to run the company
