    I have been working at Trianz full-time

    Pros

    Nice to have some exposure to leadership

    Cons

    I can only speak for the Silicon Valley office. Anyone who is being recruited, take a serious look at this company. I myself am not planning to stay here much longer. Here are some questions to ask:

    - How many paying customers do you have?
    - Are you growing or shrinking?
    - What is your employee turnover rate? Why is everyone leaving in droves?
    - What's the average life span of an employee at Trianz?
    - What's the actual average annual raise and bonus for the past 5 years?

    Hope that helps.

    I worked at Trianz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Poor hiring process negatively impact the average level of the consultants which is low to mediocre with few exceptions

    Cons

    Leadership (CEO included) is not reliable or trustworthy. The most important goal are money and employee are left behind... just ask them when they got the last bonus or the last promotion and you get an idea. Mobility upward is based on personal relationship. Projects are more staff augmentation rather than consulting gigs. The leadership is going through a major turnover impacting long term vision and stability across all the company level

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Not sure there is something they can salvage for the consulting practice. Just close shop and focus on your IT offer

    Pros

    honestly, i can't think of many pros. if you are being recruited in silicon valley, be careful. read the reviews and figure out which ones are written by employees, and which ones are written by recruiters.

    and if you just want a place to bide your time while looking for a job, then take their offer!

    Cons

    trianz is a place to go when you have no other options. go ahead and interview with them, and ask them what percent of the people that were there 1 year ago are still there today. then ask them what percent of the people that were there 2 years ago are still there. get the picture?

    oh, and none of the promises made to you when you're hired will be honored.

    the company and its leaders are perpetually late, lazy, dishonest, uninspiring, short-sighted, cheap, reactive...not much else to say.

    there you have it.

    Pros

    It's a place to get some experience on your resume, but you will quickly want to move on to a real company that has vision and market presence.

    Cons

    Company and its leadership are characterized by ineptitude, lack of vision, absence of leadership, stubbornness, secrecy, favoritism, lack of transparency, and fear of taking risks.

    I worked at Trianz full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I did some great projects at the company which you do not even get exposure at a Big 4. I was specifically impressed with the type of consultative selling I got an exposure to while working at Trianz. Work culture is open, and transparent . Most of the consultants in the company are focused on IT consulting and it is a growing its team of management consultants therefore, there are multiple opportunities.

    Cons

    Management consulting team is small and therefore there are issue with scale while delivering some key strategic engagements. I would also suggest that it is a great place to work for those who have some consulting exposure in their past career.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The leadership team need to better manage the brand perception at client. Overall, as a company, Trianz needs to hire, train and retain right people.

    I worked at Trianz full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    no salary standards, so you can negotiate well during joining, especially if they are hiring for critical requirement. They will promise everything from green cards , career growth etc etc. all sorts of people will interview

    Cons

    I left a good job with TOP MNC because they promised to get the GC started immediately. I was hired for a project, in 5 months it came to an end , and suddenly i was asked to resign or go to India. When hired they said lot of projects across US , now i Know they have only 3or 4 projects , so very difficult to find other work

    I realized later that this was happening to even people who have worked for 8+ years, project ends, you go to India / take leave till next project. refuse to continue GC until next project. Nobody will talk to you except the HR person calling to find when you can resign. People who made all the promises will not even return your calls or emials. everybody disappears

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    be honest to your employers , dont make false promises to candidates and spoil their lives.

    Pros

    An amazing journey so far with Trianz. You want to be in a challenging environment which helps you lead by example - something I have seen right from the top. As someone rightly pointed out here, if you wish to be creative, leash that entrepreneurial instincts you have hidden inside you and no compromise on Integrity/values....this is the right place to be!

    Cons

    Can improve on employee engagement and training programs....Its hard to please everyone, but can see strides happening in this direction as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trianz has the magic formula and the right vision to scale to greater heights so staying focussed is key...and more importantly advice for middle management to continue providing the right support and believe. When you believe and have the faith with each support you see wonders happening around!

    Pros

    Received excellent support from team and management to get up to speed. Very interesting projects at some of the large clients around here. A progressive organization - continuous learning and growth opportunities.

    Cons

    Wide spread of offerings for it's size... but could turn out to be a huge positive eventually. The locations could use better integration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The recent wave of energy is refreshing... let this not be short-lived... continue this till the new initiatives are understood and achieved.
