    "Working at TR is an exercise in futility for a professional of any competence, yet quite rewarding for the incompetent."

    Former Employee - Senior Consultant in Houston, TX
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    They have a competitive benefits package, an average compensation rate and seem unwilling to fire anyone, so if you don't care about being able to accomplish anything productive, this is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Only "yes men" are rewarded, so process improvement is impossible. This is exacerbated by their history of acquisitions and repetitive operational restructuring. Managers lack technical competence on all levels. Mission states they "value clients needs as much as their own" while they actually laugh at the precarious positions they put their clients in by service delivery failures. Most poorly run large company imaginable. Whether they will ultimately implode is not the question, but when? And how they have avoided it so far?? Not a place for a serious professional.

    Advice to Management

    This is a tone at the top problem. Won't be solved without a strategic initiative to re-evaluate the business as a whole through identifying individual business operational units key performance indicators, followed by organization wide cleansing of incompetent managers. Define required key competencies for running business units, let go managers who lack them, and promote from within those who do. Key operstional competencies needed for each business unit are: industry expertise, financial expertise, operational expertise, sales and marketing expertise.

    Stop the promotion of "yes men" and go with the most passionate customer oriented personnel you already have. Stop believing the operational managers' reports on product and personnel capacity vis-a-vis client service delivery capacity and ask the line sales and customer service personnel, (because management where I worked misrepresented everything). if you are losing business in a unit, and managment is still saying how great things are, then that's where your firing should start.
