    Cons

    While we have grown immensely we have not done the best job at adapting to that change. We need to work on getting better tools to be more successful. Our leadership team in Inside Sales specifically is undercompensated for their work and are not looked at as equivalent to their field counterparts. They have the same responsibilities, large quotas, and span of control as their field counter parts yet do not have equivalent...

    Advice to Management

    Now that ISO has grown significantly to this amazing group of talented people we need to grow up our structure and support systems. We need to reevaluate how we reward our sales leaders and continue to grow our sales consultant team.

    Pros

    Incredible, seriously incredible sales training. Great place to build out your ecosystem and become an expert in your vertical. Product has great value which makes it a desirable sale. Great base plus commission structure. Incredible people work here.

    Cons

    Its a big boy job, not the easy laid back entry level sales gig some people are looking for. However if you put in the work the rewards are huge.

    I have been working at TriNet full-time for more than 2 years

    Pros

    TriNet offers true value if you enjoy selling B2B. It has a strong team culture and people are encouraged to work together rather than being pitted against each other. They offer high quality and high value if you are a solution-seller, and they have an honest comp plan that can be really lucrative by the 2nd year.

    Cons

    PEO is not for wimps- you have to be willing to put in the work. That doesn't mean a zillion hours, but you can't expect to make $200,000+ and have it be a cakewalk, either.

    Advice to Management

    Drive more marketing dollars to the field team so we can represent in our community.

    Pros

    Still a great place to work, they pay well and your direct managers will likely be great. They understand your work life balance and do everything in their power to help you succeed. Hire from within and great opportunities for training.

    Cons

    New head of the sales department is making ill advised and counter productive changes. Sacrificing quality for quantity on activity and turning stretch goals into requirements. This is very predictably leading to an increase in total production, but also a drop in overall morale and large amounts of very low quality meetings, which just waste everyone's time.

    Advice to Management

    Get back to pushing for high quality vs high quantity of activity.

    I have been working at TriNet full-time for more than 6 years

    Pros

    TriNet has a large pool of amazing and talented people, and your experience largely depends on whether or not you are lucky enough to land in one of the teams made up of great people. Total compensation is competitive for Director levels up. Exceptional leadership exists on most teams. There are C-levels and VP-levels who make the effort to learn the names and roles of their extended staff, and personally meet with...

    Cons

    While most new hires are required to meet both job qualification and cultural fit, pressure from the Board causes HR turns the blind eye for cultural fit when it comes to recruiting senior executives, many of whom demand further exception when their first course of action once hired is to bring in their own direct reports from previous companies. This leads to friction between networked new hires and legacy staff and...

    Advice to Management

    HR needs to stop turning the blind eye. Thoroughly investigate when numerous long-time colleagues resign shortly after a senior leader is hired. It really says something when almost all of a leader's direct reports quit one after the other.

    I have been working at TriNet full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Benefits for employee/employee’s family are outstanding.

    Cons

    The company should stop giving all the RSUs to outside executives that come in, do nothing while waiting for stock to best, then leaving and dumping stock. This plummets the stock and morale of employees who are actually contributing to the ESPP.

    Advice to Management

    I don’t believe Burton should be CEO. Company has outgrown his leadership abilities. His background is in sales, not operations, and it shows.

    I worked at TriNet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Base salary, draws/MBO in your first year, lax expense policy, good place to bridge the gap between entry level and enterprise sales

    Cons

    Huge push to be a millennial friendly company, which is good in theory, but in doing so TriNet will most likely continue to attract & retain mediocre sales reps. I’ve never met a top performer that likes reporting to multiple managers, reporting to an office everyday, “collaborating” vs working independently, and being forced to split their hard earned commissions with other sales reps. With this being said, if you disliked...

    I worked at TriNet full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Excellent benefits PTO and holiday days off. Vertical strategy well intended. Some innovative products that garner additional revenue and ability to increase price points to push up stock price.

    Cons

    Integration of acquired PEOs. Could easily see over 500k WSEs now if due diligence applied. Flat to negative WSE surely was the result with integrations and new platform bugs left for customers to work out as beta testers. Service model changes and it’s lacking in proactive HR service for clients under 50 WSEs. Inflexibility to meet customers needs will hinder market penetration unless another acquisition is done.

    Advice to Management

    Get in the trenches speak to those closest to your customers to isolate client and corporate attrition.
