Pros

Because it's a small company, you actually work for TriNet and all benefits are provided by them, which are generally very good.

Cons

Lack of investment in technical resources and design. Lack of structure and disorganization. No room for career advancement in most positions.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The work is very rewarding and the people you work with for the most part are young and great to deal with on a day-to-day basis.

    Cons

    The leadership is myopic, poorly prepared to lead and is more often reactive than proactive

    Advice to Management

    Time to hire a new CEO and start over or move down to Southern California and do the real work necessary to make this company everything it is supposed to be!

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    A large percentage of the employees are kind, interesting, engaging, smart people of good character. Your role will not be limited to the "traditional" tasks associated with your job title - you will have the opportunity (necessity) to reach beyond those and contribute in other areas also.

    Cons

    You will not be rewarded or even acknowleged for exceptional performance. Management has been in total chaos for at least 5 years and remains so today. They do not have a plan - nor do they communicate decisions effectively to employees. There is no accountability at the Executive level - instead, their responsibilities are pushed down to the middle managers without commensurate authority to make decisions or produce outcomes. Getting a policy decision that is comprehensible is impossible. Senior Management will not remove barriers to progress, nor attend to the fundamentals necessary to enable middle and lower level employees to achieve good outcomes. Management will violate your trust, as was done with the December 2009 and June 2010 bonuses, which were not paid - and there was no communication of this intent by management until they were already overdue. The executive team simply does not respect employees, nor any contract that is signed. Getting management to deliver what has been promised in a contract with a customer is nearly impossible, so you will always be stuck between an exasperated and hostile customer and an incompetent, irresponsible Executive.

    Advice to Management

    Find a new vocation. Your inexperience, cronyism, inadequate self-discipline, failure to plan, and woefully inadequate idea of what communication is have destroyed what could be a fantastic organization and an admirable business.
