    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Trellis Company full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits. Nice people mostly. You get paid for working.

    Cons

    The outlook is negative. The current business model is unsustainable without new sources of revenue. No strong movement towards replacing revenue of a government program that ended 9 years ago (FFELP). Very little transparency and two-way communication from the board of directors. The impression is that the board cares about philanthropy over taking risks that might lead to growth.

    Advice to Management

    Use what is left of the funds to be innovative. It looks pretty bad when employee cuts are being made yet philanthropy is celebrated. Be honest and open to employees about future plans for the company. Restructure the company to remove the board of directors. Thier purpose is highly questionable for a company of this size and structure. This many years after FFELP ended there should have been recovery. Failure is... pinned on multiple CEOs and management rather than the board.

    I have been working at Trellis Company full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Trellis Company has recently made significant leadership changes that have created an environment of trust, openness, and leadership regularly demonstrates how they truly value employee contributions and commitment. The transparency demonstrated just within then past few months provides insight into the future including impact to employees, and the integrity now displayed has long been lacking and while employees... are held accountable, management "walks the talk". Benefits are stellar with a lot of flexibility and options, and the facilities are amazing.
