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

    Pros

    If you've experienced success selling to the C-Suite in a high-volume B2B sale, you'll find a rewarding career and a solid comp plan at TriNet. Our verticalized teams work with the brightest minds in the most interesting industries such as FinTech, Life Sciences and Not-for-Profit. I love being part of my community and I feel blessed very day to work with a very talented team from sales to service and beyond. I believe TriNet is a great place to work.

    Cons

    From September - January our hours increase significantly. This is a life-style business and you may attend meetings from 7am-8pm on a fairly regular basis. The Consultant owns their own schedule, but success requires hard work and discipline.

    Advice to Management

    We have a great company, products and people.

    Pros

    decent pay, flexibility, good benefits, good PTO plan

    CEO has a great vision but even though it's passed down to mgt, it never comes to fruition.

    Cons

    Company a mess since went public and acquired 3 other smaller sized PEO's. middle mgt makes decisions without any respect to the impact on the colleagues below and the added (unnecessary) work it creates for them, they react before they think things through, they make decisions to benefit them and their teams disregarding exec mgt vision and direction.
    long term colleagues don't like the change that has resulted from the 3 acquisitions and are not helpful or willing to change or flexible. Colleagues pass the buck the Client Service Teams 90% of the time...Client services tired of always being the bad guy to the customers. Client service accountable for client retention and it impacts their increases and advancement potential when theloss of clients is 85% o f the time not their fault, the fault of mgt and the lack of flexibility in their decision making and plans.
    With the addition of these 3 acquisitions and their clients and employees, the IT systems are constantly breaking.

    Advice to Management

    Exec MGT needs forums and round tables with Client Services, Exec Mgt needs to hold the mid-level managers accountable and they don't therefore they do as they please regardless of the impact on customers.
    Listen to those in the ranks dealing with customers each day. We are tired of constantly saying I'm sorry for the decisions of others or because the systems don't work...It's become a way of life and not a positive one.
