    I worked at TRL full-time (More than 5 years)


    Generally a good work / life balance
    Good development opportunities for graduates who are starting their careers
    Good HR department
    Varied and interesting project work
    Lovely people to work with


    Poor pay rises generally, and particularly poor in relation to promotions
    Lack of opportunities for people who have been there for 5+ years to develop further
    Few opportunities to specialise in a technical area (as the work is largely driven by client needs and there is little investment in personal development)
    Lack of consistency across groups and divisions
    Perception of unfair pay between existing and new employees

    Advice to Management

    It is very unsettling for employees when many business 'changes' are happening but with little clarity. Suggest a more open and honest approach from senior management.

    New employees, often with less experience than existing employees, appear to be paid much bigger salaries (differences of around £5k+). This is very demotivating for staff and pay should be fair across the business.

    Average Interview


    I applied through other source. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at TRL (Wokingham, England (UK)).


    Very useful process, very clear, with HR professionals which were very welcoming and posed some interesting questions. There was a 1:1 interview with the hiring manager and a second interview with the hiring manager, and a colleague.
