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

    Pros

    Benefits. 90% over for medical, dental and vision. Start of with 136 hours of PTO and after 3 yrs increases to 176.

    Cons

    TriNet is trying to play catch up in the technology side with the new kids on the block. They live in the past and do not have a real agile process. They do not respect and honor UX, in which they let go of the entire UX team. Not having a UX team will make the applications very difficult for users to navigate. Disfunction on the Product team (pushing people out) and Engineering side (lack of resources). There is no innovation, especially when you have VPs and other executives coming from failed HP, who spread outdated workflows and management styles. Lack of resources on the support side which is making users frustrated. If you are in the last part of your career and looking to ride into retirement, TriNet is your place. If you are looking for an innovative and creative company and starting out your career or looking for an inspired work environment, DO NOT look at TriNet.

    Advice to Management

    Be inspired and get innovative. TriNet has many start up clients who we can learn from. Put more resources in the Product, engineering, and UX teams.

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

    Pros

    Good health benefits, salary, and time off. Really liked my colleagues.

    Cons

    Felt management was not very transparent about issues, especially when easily noticeable. (e.g. Significant client issues over a period of 6 months because of internal technical issues, and the entire response was "we had some difficult moments, but got through it and everything went well." That was not true for anyone who was actually part of it.)

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the good and the bad. It's fine to spin with positivity, but it feels false and out-of-touch to completely gloss over issues.

    Pros

    Once a great company with good direction with focus on its employees. People do the right thing for their Clients. Good senior leaders in IT, Products, Operations, HR, Marketing, Not sure about Finance yet

    Cons

    Its rather simple, the new legal management team has run-off the people that actually know how to run this complex business. The legal team has been gifted authority to make it so difficult to do anything its crazy. I have never seen anything like it ever. Legal is micromanaging a multibillion dollar company yet are unresponsive to critical inquiries. People are afraid of legal and he apparently is a bully and openly refers to our Pres as a rodent and says he can fire anyone at any time./rather disrespectful and caviler/

    Advice to Management

    Take a strong look at your senior managers /legal/If people are afraid to speak with legal the real issues will never surface. The referral to manager is just that find a leader that people will follow not fear. I wouldn't be surprised if legal micromanages the company responses on this website. Survey the teams to get their feedback on how bad legal really is to work with and then create a corrective action plan /////

    Pros

    Amazing group of people to work with, I enjoy my immediate team and colleagues in other departments immensely. Good pay for consulting work, challenging work tasks, great support for personal professional development. Benefits increases have been kept to a minimum, which seems to be better than most.

    Cons

    Many concurrent changes and challenges that lack coordination with affected departments. Change is due to growth (not a bad thing) but employees can only be pushed so far at one time.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Cons

    Growing company so they change processes often but if you are flexible it's not seen as a bad thing. Some positons require travel but the destinations are great!
