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

    Pros

    Culture and amazing people. I've been in HR Sales for 15 years and I've found my home. Collaboration and teamwork makes the environment so much fun. Our technology, services, pricing model, ecosystem and focus on small business success is so enjoyable. We are given all the tools we need to succeed personally as well.

    Cons

    I can't think of any.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work!

    Pros

    The people at TriNet are amazing to work with. The work is interesting and you are constantly learning new things. It is possible to make lateral/cross-departmental moves to gain knowledge and experience. Depending on your position, you may be able to work remotely at your manager's discretion. The benefits are good and they provide fun activities/food for employees at least once a quarter. They are also active in the community and you get 8 hours of VTO every year.

    Cons

    Things have changed since TriNet became a publicly traded company and not necessarily for the better. Work/Life balance is talked about but people feel obligated to put "Life" on the back burner and people find themselves frequently working nights and weekends. TriNet has grown at a very fast pace and it doesn't seem like the executives have a clear plan except for people to work harder/longer.

    You will get compensated at the lowest rate possible and it is difficult to get promoted up unless you are friends with the higher-ups. How hard you work or how much you contribute gets verbal praises, but money does not get put where the mouth is.

    Upper management diversity is non-existent. We're talking mostly and "old boys" network. Any strong female leadership leaves to pursue their goals else where. Compare TriNet's leadership team to ADP's leadership team available on both websites to see the difference.

    Advice to Management

    Put your money where your mouth is. Pay people what they are worth.

    I have been working at TriNet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Bagels on Fridays. Occasional free food.

    Cons

    Poor management, training is non existent, clique type environment. I felt like I was in high school with the mean girls and boys. Constant gossip about fellow employees and salary is way below market rate. The absolute worst place I've ever worked.

    Advice to Management

    Management needs intense training.

    I worked at TriNet full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits and PTO. Peer support and relationships are what keeps people from leaving.

    Cons

    HR is useless. Recruiters are a joke. If you are ever promised anything from your supervisor or manager make sure you get it in writing or it's your word alone...
    Pay sucks for people that have been there longer.

    Advice to Management

    Training needs to be more uniform among departments. Work loads need to be evaluated and overhauled. Also for the EEs that are just placeholders.... Reevaluate their position and either retrain or get them out of there. If you can't take care of internal it makes it harder to take care of external.
