    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great office team, everyday is different as the challenges clients have change, opportunity to work with and mentor motivated staff

    Cons

    In consulting, there is always more that can be done. As company has grown through acquisitions, culture hard to maintain. Each local office can be quite unique in culture, tone, and team support.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that loyalty to a company by an employee has to be earned, not presumed.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The work is ever-changing, and the opportunity to enter many types of facilities and learn about their processes keeps work interesting. There is a lot of opportunity to pave new paths, especially for self-starters who are looking to take on new types of projects and/or industries. Colleagues are very intelligent and are, generally, pleasant but not necessarily ones that you will want to hang out with on the... weekends. If you want to kick start your career in consulting, this is a great company to learn the process, including everything from proposal writing, to project execution, to invoicing and ensuring client satisfaction along the way.

    Cons

    Every employee's experience can vary greatly, depending on the local industry and office management. If you are looking for a work-life balance or an environment where you need collaboration or social interaction, this is not the place for you. Trinity values hard, solo work and long, billable hours. The private equity investors continue to demand greater and greater profits, which strains office managers to put... pressure on lower-level consultants. The resulting profits are distributed only to upper-level management and rarely distributed to any low- or mid-level consultants (often after many hours of billable overtime). They continue to raise the metrics for promotion, making it more and more difficult to climb the ladder. The benefits are mediocre but not realized unless you are in it for the long term (6+ years). PTO is pitiful, counts against utilization, and is not increased until after five years of employment. The company is clearly male-dominated but appears to be trying to make strides to improve the opportunities for women.

    Advice to Management

    Quit dragging your feet and take action to get rid of the bad eggs. They are ruining the company's reputation and dragging colleagues down along with them. Stop undervaluing your consultants and senior consultants and stop burning them out if you want them to stay for the long term.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Colleagues are smart.

    Cons

    The sales objectives are tough. And in this regulatory environment, I don't think companies want to spend top dollar for environmental consulting. Making it worse, the private equity investors keep demanding greater and greater return on investments.

    Advice to Management

    Not sure what they can do. Tough business. If I were a young graduate, I would avoid this field.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Challenging work, lots of responsibility given early on. Minimal egos, very supportive and collaborative. Large variety of projects. Good career growth guidance and training. Smart people, but still very team oriented.

    Cons

    Consulting is tough. Long hours once in a while.

    Advice to Management

    Proactively show appreciation to high achievers. Career planning program is very good and well-developed. Managers should spend more quality time with employees on this.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large company. Lots of career options and opportunities. Salary is above average for the industry. Health benefits are excellent.

    Cons

    Holiday and PTO are mediocre. Only get 8 paid holidays per year (New Year's day, Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Thanksgiving day and day after, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day). Previous firms that I worked for had 11 paid holidays (in addition to the 8 mentioned, we got New Year's Eve and 2 floating holidays to use anytime like Martin Luther King or Good Friday). PTO policy is the worst of any company... I've worked for. PTO is for both vacation and sick days.
