    I worked at Ambrose Employer Group, LLC (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great people and a truly caring company. Struggled once acquired a bit, but many of the people stayed and have kept at least some of the culture

    Cons

    Acquisition was tough on a lot of folks

    Advice to Management

    Try to keep original culture and encourage communication and teamwork

    Pros

    Great culture that was kept alive at all levels. Critical thinking was the spirit of that culture and was respected.

    Cons

    Brose died a corporate bureaucratic death through M&A. Trinet is a top down robotically driven company that is mismanaged at all of the senior levels. All of the intelligent folks have stopped contributing as it is is not in line with CEO narrow mindedness.

    Advice to Management

    Trinet BOD: Time to change out some folks.

    "My employer employed everyone through Ambrose. The employee is caught in the middle."

    I worked at Ambrose Employer Group, LLC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Easy for the employer to provide HR, benefits, etc. Allows for benefits that a small employer may not otherwise be abel to provide.

    Cons

    The employee is always in middle - Ambrose says "its your employer" and your employer says "its Ambrose". The benefits are poor and the service attitude was basically "deal with it". Forces the employee to deal with a disinterested 3rd party company for things you think of as your company providing.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees as though they really are your employees. Provide some feedback mechanism to help improve broken processes and poor service.

    I have been working at Ambrose Employer Group, LLC full-time

    Pros

    - Employee population at Ambrose is very nice, (this does not include management)
    - Convenient work location

    Cons

    -Employees are worked to the bone and set-up for failure with workloads that are far too large
    - Management is completely out of touch with their employees and unapproachable
    - Performance reviews are not based on performance but rather how 'friendly' you are with your manager
    - Extreme micromanagement
    - Vacation black out dates around holidays and new year
    - Horrible work/life balance

    Advice to Management

    Any advice provided to management by the general employee population, is ignored.

    Pros

    Great job with opportunities to develop skills, get involved in projects, grow through a career ladder, be recognized for good work, team performance bonuses, fun culture, highly engaging, and more!

    Cons

    The company was acquired by TriNet in 2013, so the future outlook is yet to be determined, but so far it seems like a good thing for everyone involved.

    I worked at Ambrose Employer Group, LLC full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The Coworkers are great, Management completely opposite

    Cons

    -TERRIBLE work/life balance
    - Compensation
     -If you don't agree with your manager, don't say your ideas otherwise you can start looking for new job
    - They hire people with sponsoring visa because they are locked and they cannot say anything against, otherwise they will loose the visa and job
    - Core Values are only core for employees not Management
    - Performance review - nothing to do with your performance, if you are good friend with your manager, went for drinks together then your review will be excellent

    Advice to Management

    they will not listen anyway....
