I worked at Trilliant full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Was vibrant, in its day. Something to be said about a different business plan each day. The "can do" facet of this environment was invigorating.

Cons

Big company attitude in small company shoes, seems to have lost its way when taking corrective action from the idea a day regime that did exist. They had every opportunity, still do.

Advice to Management

Become the good part of start-up culture again. Take some risks and break out. Bring in some motivated talent and then motivate them further. Don't comply to the market that has been set by others. Create it. Get ahead of the game as you once did.

    Pros

    But nice people, open communication, casual dress code.
    Some opportunities to learn.

    Cons

    Busy, cheap ( very cheap ! ), lot of managers ( who are more than happy to take credit for your work )

    Advice to Management

    Fire the ones that do nothing and give the raise to the worker bees.

    I have been working at Trilliant full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Trilliant Networks is a smart grid company and some find that cool and trendy. The building in Redwood City, CA is attractive. The office is very modern with a lot of glass. The weather in Red Wood City is very special (even for the bay area). It's close to the Oracle building which is a nice place to have lunch and go for a walk at lunch time.

    Cons

    Lay-offs frequent. Top heavy with Management. Some promotions happen, but not many. Payed time off (PTO) is 10 days a year regardless of whether your sick or on vacation. 50+ hours a week but paid on salary to avoid OT pay. Training was very minimal and of poor quality. Salaries are low and a raises only happen when forced in my experience.

    Advice to Management

    If customers can't easily get the support they need to make the product work, then they will find another option. Making customers pay for support ultimately hurts sales. With regard to promotions, someone who has functioned at a lower level often knows the inner working of that department better than an outsider who's never worked at the company. We people see that salaries and low and promotions are infrequent, the smart one move on.
