    I worked at Talentrust (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Nothing I can say at this time.

    Cons

    One of the worst career decisions I have ever made. The environment was toxic, the management was abrasive and Kathleen does not practice what she preaches. My advice would be to RUN! I was sold on a position and a "flexible" environment but once I was in the door it was apparent right away that I had been lied to. It took months for me to shake the feeling of disgust from the position and I was advise anyone to think twice before you accept.

    Advice to Management

    I would offer advice, however, I know that nothing will change. Blanketed answers such as "this environment doesn't work for everyone" don't fix the major internal issues that are going on. Wake up!

    I'm always disappointed when it doesn't work out and clearly this was not a good match. We certainly aren't the perfect spot for everyone and welcome the feedback both positive and negative so we... More

    Pros

    Solid company values
    Position is a remote position and working from home as advantages

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low
    Unmanageable work load
    There have been many problems with the Directors

    Advice to Management

    Hire Directors that are true leaders and can successfully manage their teams.
    Remind Directors that is is inappropriate to talk negatively about other employees and the executive team.
    Hire more employees overall so the clients will be happy with the service provided.

    I have been working at Talentrust full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The best thing about working for TalenTrust is that it is a small company that cares about its employees and is always finding ways to improve every aspect about the business.

    After reading previous reviews it is obvious to me that the CEO as well as the entire leadership team has learned from past mistakes/experiences and is devoted to growth and learning of the organization and those in it. In addition, if the reviews from 2013 and prior are accurate as to what the culture was like then, it is obvious that the organization has listened to feedback and made a lot of changes since those ratings were relevant.

    No two days are the same! That's the beauty of working with a small and growing company! The culture is always improving and always being monitored. This can make for an exciting and ever changing work environment, which can make some people feel like the organization lacks consistency. I can speak from experience to say that TalenTrust definitely does not lack consistency but has gained the ability to change with the market as well as with the feedback and needs of the employees.

    Cons

    With TalenTrust you will find what you normally would in a small, growing, disruptive organization. You will find a value placed on high character and a job that is demanding. Although not a negative aspect to me personally, the hours at TalenTrust can be long and the workload can be heavy. The job security and ownership of working for such a close knit group, who are all pulling for the same thing makes the long hours worth the time and future possibilities of working with this awesome group.

    Advice to Management

    Each member of the leadership/management team brings their own unique skills to the table but as a group you can't ask for a more caring and genuine group.

    I have been working at Talentrust part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    TalenTrust is a growing company which offers great growth and learning opportunities for it's staff. Working from home offers great flexibility, but can make it hard to shut down at times. TalenTrust has some great clients and it is fun to get immersed in their business cultures.

    Cons

    The work load can be a bit high so individuals need to be self motivated.

    Pros

    Nothing is better than working from home; when you have children or work far from a major city, this is a great opportunity. It looks good on your resume because of the hard work you do on a daily basis.

    Cons

    The requisition load is unrealistic and if you are not a Director, you are treated like an executive assistant; they hire people with years of recruiting experience who are much more qualified than the work they are given.

    Advice to Management

    Let everyone have a say in what happens instead of just the extremely tenured employees; hire enough workers to get the job done efficiently, instead of working the current employees to the bone.

    I worked at Talentrust full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The co-workers were great the management not!

    Cons

    This was an experience that was a nightmare. Horrible management that spoke down to the employees. They do not share the truth with the clients and ask all of the Director's of Service Excellence to not share how many clients we actually service.

    It was the biggest nightmare and highly recommend everyone to do their homework. The management has to be bi-polar. They yell, screech and are absolutely unprofessional. We worked around 75 hours a week and that still was not enough. This would be why there is such turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people more professionally and do not lie to the clients.

    Pros

    The business model is truly innovative and compelling to employees and clients. The work environment is very flexible and allows teams a lot of autonomy to manage clients and deliverables. Expectations are high as the level of service expected by clients is nothing less than outstanding. For the person with the right attitude and aptitude to thrive in an entrepreneurial environment this is a great place to build a career with significant opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    The business is small and growing quickly so there are inherent uncertainties and modifications of strategy which is not uncommon for a business at this stage. This type of business is not for everyone. If you are unable to be flexible, innovative and adaptable to change you will not do well in this environment.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to care about your employees and focus on building a strong lasting culture that challenges employees to be their best and deliver great service to clients. Keep the communication open and transparent with both the good and the bad. Great visionary leadership. Provide increased opportunities for face to face interactions with team.
