      Pros

      Opportunity to make great money, Great benefit packages and coverage to give you and your family peace of mind, amazing colleagues that want the best for you. Support is there anytime you ask for it. Recently updated PTO policy allowing more flexibility. Work from home is definitely an added bonus that I hope stays post pandemic.

      Cons

      There has been horrible communication with change and updates making it almost impossible for everyone to be on the same page. But, to be fair, there have been many improvements as of recently which is very encouraging. Internal processes still need improvement. Still too much time wasted on internal roadblocks and it can lead to killing productivity and eventually burnout.

      Great place that will either break you or build you (then break you)

      Pros

      Great benefits. Great training. Can quickly ramp you into a sales beast if you work hard. And yes, TriNet is better than competitors in products and services. Have used multiple competitors at other jobs since and none even hold a candle to TriNet.

      Cons

      Intense environment that will quickly break the weak or slowly burn out the strong.

      Pros

      Sales has a lot of tools to succeed, commission structure is amazing, the product/service leads the industry, true collaboration, and leaders have integrity

      Cons

      The sales consultant has a true hunting role, so heavy self generation prospecting is needed, PEO is a complex sale

      It is not an ideal place to work

      Pros

      The company offers good benefits.

      Cons

      The company boasts and presents itself to be a great employer. It is far from truth, the best leaders are departed or departing. The organization does not value leadership qualities, it places value on people who do not bring a great culture, trust or a good work ethic. I have witnessed too many people departing for unfair, not well documented and nothing attributed to their performance. The CEO cares about his people, his middle managers do not carry the same values.

      Pros

      Great benefits, great colleague resource groups

      Cons

      Work/life balance is debatable in a lot of the positions within the company. Pay not as competitive to other companies if you aren't in sales.

      Pros

      Great CEO. That's about it!

      Cons

      Management has no clue what they are doing, high-churn across all levels in every market nationwide (Benchmark LinkedIn for AVG tenure) - it's a complex sale that 90% don't know to execute nor have experience in doing so. GTM organization ( sales, marketing, service) completely misaligned (CRO left company). In the past year, 70% of the best sales talent left for the competition or upgraded 10X elsewhere. Product not competitive in the market (benchmark 10K filings) (average close ratio 13% nationwide). Service team amazing, but overworked and understaffed with 50+ clients per HR business partner leaving unacceptable SLAs with customer in dark ( look at google reviews ). Terrible culture. Toxic work environment. The list continues. Before considering a front-line sales position (inside or outside sales), interview 2-3 current sellers - the results will be very telling.
