    I have been working at Trinity Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great corporate culture and atmosphere, brilliant staff, highly competitive pay and benefits, room for advancement, great projects that have industry-wide impact, huge brand-name pharma clients that have enormous trust in Trinity.

    Cons

    Commute is a pain if living in Boston, but this is negligible relative to the upside of working here.

    I worked at Trinity Partners full-time

    Pros

    Nice people, good culture, interesting projects if you can move away from too much primary market research, good training program, good relationship with alumni

    Cons

    zero work life balance (it's just work), after the initial training there is little that is provided, favoritism in the upper and lower ranks which shouldn't happen

    Advice to Management

    take bottom up feed back more seriously and show some action because people will leave if they don't feel like they are being listened too

    Pros

    People can be nice and you can make friends. I guess this is the only good thing about Trinity !

    Cons

    They over commit to clients, refuse to hire more people to work on a project and setup high expectations from you .. Without enough guidance and support. Management can be very rude to you if you even question the tiniest bit of why things should be done a specific way

    Advice to Management

    Management should see what's good for employees and what makes them happy rather than always starving to make clients happy. Look at the high attrition rate of your company and learn to make some changes

    I worked at Trinity Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good place to get experience. Nice training sessions. Some interesting projects. Some coworkers/managers are amazing and I miss them a ton.

    Cons

    Under-compensates and overworks, especially the younger workers. Very, very political which stems from the top of the organization on down and breeds infighting.

    Advice to Management

    I ordinarily don't review companies on Glassdoor but felt I had to seeing that the rating is currently at 4.6 overall which seems very misleading considering Google is 4.4 and Facebook is 4.5. Trinity is not better than Facebook... I'm not sure how to stop the infighting except by changing the overall structure of the firm which will never happen given that too many people have their interest tied to the structure already. The overworking shouldn't be a surprise to anyone coming into a consultancy.

    I have been working at Trinity Partners full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, interesting clients, broad exposure to the biotech/pharma industry, colleagues who care about their jobs and produce high-quality work. A lot of responsibility from day one, and a good environment for a self-starter to learn and grow. Supportive people who will go out of their way if you ask for help or express interest in learning something from them. When morale flagged, leadership team made quick and effective changes to reestablish firm culture while maintaining high standards for client deliverables. By and large, people want to see everyone succeed.

    Cons

    More market research than strategy consulting. Lack of travel does not always equal work-life balance: long hours are not unusual (and are made much worse by decent commute due to suburban location).

    Advice to Management

    Some consideration will be needed as to what career development looks like as Trinity gets bigger - the Trinity that I joined out of undergrad is very different than the Trinity that people three years older than me joined right out of undergrad (to say nothing of those in higher leadership roles), both in terms of the opportunities/responsibilities that I have in my current position as well as my chance for promotion to future roles. Makes it extremely hard to envision what a long-term path for me at Trinity might look like, as I can already see the ways that drastic changes have occurred in a very short period of time with those ahead of me.

    Pros

    Incredibly friendly and cohesive working environment. People here are always willing to talk to you and help with whatever you need. At the same time, people are very smart and driven. In my time here I have learned so much about the healthcare industry and personal work habits that I feel very confident that I can be successful in many other lines of work.

    Cons
