  1. "Best Consulting Firm I've Worked For"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I have been working at Trindent Consulting full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I know everyone says this about their workplace, but the people here are truly the best. I've worked for two other consulting firms (one very similar to Trindent and one much larger) and neither of them made me feel as supported as Trindent does. I'm fairly new to the company and even so, every single person is willing to help me with anything at any time. Including upper management.

    Cons

    Different leaders have different expectations at times, which can cause rework. This is only true in some areas, not all. Especially with new leadership.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to effort addressing the disconnect between some current leaders in terms of talk vs. action.

    I have been working at Trindent Consulting full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Trindent is a fast-paced, dynamic organization working with high-profile clients. I enjoy the pace, the manner in which our thought-leaders execute, and that we are a close-knit group of very talented people who all have the same end-goal in sight. Our leadership team is exceptional, and very well respected with our clients and employees. I really enjoy the work, my personal and professional goals continue to be met, and the rewards for the value I bring are above expectations. There is no place I'd rather be.

    Cons

    Because we are high-growth and fast-paced, it's not an environment for everyone. Expectations are high, and those who aren't successful are pretty quickly weeded out. This shouldn't be mistaken for anything but what it is: poor work ethic and inability to do the job one was hired to do.

    Advice to Management

    Good business leaders create, articulate, own, and drive the vision to succeed. Keep doing what you do to give us the competitive advantages that help us deliver exceptional results to our clients. Keep pushing us to be the best we can be.

    Pros

    Senior operations leaders are top quality and consistently deliver outstanding results on all projects. Great opportunities for advancement for high caliber individuals. It is definitely a meritocracy where performance is well compensated and appreciated and they have an ongoing training program to help develop additional skill sets.

    Cons

    As a global firm supporting global clients the travel requirements can be arduous although they do try to get you back on thursday night.

    Advice to Management

    Stay focused on people development and high quality work content.

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

    Pros

    I recently had my 5 year anniversary with Trindent, of which I feel really honored to be celebrating. I work with some of the most talented, driven, and motivated people imaginable. This is a fast-paced, growing environment, and because of the growth, changes require one to move "on a dime". I enjoy those kinds of challenges, and I enjoy being part of something that is only going to continue to grow and get better. The culture is one of compassion, caring, and support. We all work really hard, and are more than fairly compensated. Many company events and social gatherings, fund-raising, healthcare and a 401K that's hard to beat.

    Cons

    It upsets me to read the negative reviews, as this has not been my experience at all. We are constantly evolving, and for those who can't manage it, their experience is a negative one, and it then become fodder for reviews. I hope that whoever reads those reviews reads them with the proper understanding and awareness. Trindent isn't for everyone, so not everyone is for Trindent.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the lines of communication open, keep forwarding the blog posts, and let's take a few more risks.

    I worked at Trindent Consulting (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Working from home and some nice co-workers

    Cons

    One office Toronto firm with very limited portfolio that advertises multiple non-existent offices and successes based on very limited completed projects. Printed HR policies are completely ignored and promised benefits are not delivered. Training is non-exigent and management is incompetent

    Advice to Management

    Get new jobs

    I worked at Trindent Consulting full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Don't fall for the positive reviews. HR has employees submit those reviews. They are absolutely and positively, 100% false. The best thing about working at Trindent is that I'm no longer there. They've given me information on the type of company that I will never work for again.

    Cons

    I really cannot think of anything good about working at this company other than your co-workers. Even they are so traumatized that you rarely have a chance to interact with them. Everything that they tell you about the company - from the pay to it's culture - is all made up. They operate from a stance of fear in their employees. There are no resources to work with, you have to provide your own. There is no training whatsoever - no matter what the other posts say. I feel for their customers, if they engage their customers in the same way they engage their employees, then they wont be customers long.

    Advice to Management

    The only advice I have for management is that they should consider a different career. Like being prison guards or something along those lines. They would be good at it.

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

    Pros

    A challenging, motivating, and rewarding place to work. Fast-paced, providing the ability to be on multiple projects, keeping very busy, and enjoying the wonderful clients that we have. Leadership is outstanding here, and we are empowered to do what's best for our clients. This is not a consultancy that micro-manages, but they do expect results that are commiserate with the pay package, as it is second to none. I enjoy the variety this job provides, I enjoy the travel, and I enjoy the openness of being able to share with senior management my thoughts, ideas, and ways we could improve. Very open to us, and have always felt very valued and appreciated here. I would recommend Trindent to anyone who is looking for a great new adventure with a company where you truly make a difference, with the ability to be quickly promoted. I must add that I am shocked by some of the negative comments! This clearly shows a lack of maturity from past employees who simply were unable to keep up, and satisfy our clients. Our clients are number one here, and if you don't have that same mindset, you won't succeed at Trindent.

    Cons

    Travel can be excessive, but every effort is made by management for us to be home with our families on the weekends.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage a more in-depth on-boarding process.

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

    Pros

    - You will be given as much responsibility and autonomy as you are capable of handling, which allows faster and more meaningful development than at a bigger firm.
    - The culture within the Operations team is highly collaborative and supportive, making long hours on projects enjoyable. It is also nurturing of new and junior hires, ensuring they are brought up to speed as quickly as possible.
    - You'll develop skills here that go beyond the typical workplace - people management, empathy, sales, managing challenging conversations, as well as the deep analytics and problem solving. This truly sets you up for success in future endeavors.

    Cons

    - Being in such a stressful environment, and spending ample time with the same people can foster a lot of negative banter about the firm. Stay above it and realize what affects you and what doesn't.
    - Little transparency on pay bands; bonuses are hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    - Continue to delegate day-to-day responsibilities onto other Executives who are closer to the business, and are able to proactively mitigate issues rather than waiting for them to become fires.

    Pros

    If you like feeling like you're adding value and working on meaningful problems for great clients, you'd like Trindent. I have had a great time working here, and most people do. I don't get whether some of the negative reviews are coming from - they must not be on the same planet as the rest of us.

    Cons

    The workload is tough to manage - everyone on your team will be maxed out.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in more on-boarding and training. Add more events and opportunities to socialize
