    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The work is challenging and varies considerably in project timeline, subject matter, complexity, etc. It offers excellent opportunity for career advancement.

    Cons

    Some clients can be demanding, and some projects require long weeks. The culture varies office to office.

    Advice to Management

    There should be more opportunity to meet colleagues in person, especially for young consultants and isolated offices. Bring back the regional training!

    I worked at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The diverse mix of clients and projects makes it easy to gain experience quickly.

    Cons

    Trinity Consultants used to have a caring atmosphere. Selling to outside equity as driven the culture into a sweat shop mentality, where the people at the top benefit mightily from the labor of those at the bottom. Burnout comes quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Make the main thing the main thing.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Mentoring opportunities abound, as there is a lot of interaction between offices. Mobility is not limited.

    Cons

    Pay is not competitive. Overtime is not compensated, but this is a pitfall of the field, not necessarily the company.

    I have been working at Trinity Consultants full-time

    Pros

    Lots to learn.. fast paced, and generally friendly atmosphere among peers. it is true that experience gained in a year at Trinity is worth three times the experience gained at a competitor, during the same amount of time.

    Cons

    Occasional uncertainty in schedules, long hours from time to time based on client needs, different supervisors have different approaches on how tasks should be done. PTO (goes without saying) is an issue.

    Advice to Management

    Require better differentials in evaluations/ expectations for larger offices vs smaller offices. More frequent reviews for senior management, especially in cases where the supervisor is at a different location.

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

    Pros

    Trinity hires some amazing people, a very talented group top to bottom. The project work is interesting (some more than others) and varied. The quality of the work done here is very impressive, as good as I have seen. There is no limit to opportunity and growth for those that want to pursue it. The culture is very performance based/driven. Do well, show your capabilities, and you are definitely recognized and... rewarded. Company information and performance is also readily shared. Anyone can see how their office and the company are performing as a whole. Very nice to have that level of exposure to the company results on a real time basis. While we work hard here, there is still a great deal of individual flexibility. Personal autonomy is given at a very rapid pace. You get to have freedom in your schedule and time of work - as long as deadlines are met and projects are being delivered, I have a lot of individual latitude on when and where I can get it done.

    Cons

    It is consulting, and we are at the beckoning call of the client. Unexpected hours needed for work can occur when we get last minute changes or emergency needs from our client requests. While normal work weeks (40 hrs) can and do occur, we always have to be prepared for the occasional 50+ work week as well.

    Advice to Management

    Get out into the field and out of Dallas from time to time. Spend more time connecting with the offices. We have 40 locations now. Make sure you are developing relationships with staff throughout the company.

    I worked at Trinity Consultants

    Pros

    Money if you're willing to put in the time (and understand that means lots of overtime for years and years).

    Cons

    Maybe the company had a culture some years ago but now it in just a money making machine, prepare to be used. The billing atmosphere leads to the weirdness of working 5 feet from someone in a partition-less room but not knowing anything about them since nobody talks.

    I worked at Trinity Consultants full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good air quality training, esp for new grads Above-average information sharing system Very intelligent, motivated coworkers Some very outstanding senior/managing consultants work at Trinity

    Cons

    In general, below average soft skills among the supervisors Much greater focus on profitability, which consists of squeezing progressively more billable hours out of the consultant ranks Depending on how patient you are, you may need to consider relocating for career opportunities Heavy workloads (even by consulting standards) for potentially months at a time Mostly a heads-down type of work environment, though... there are opportunities in the day to stop by each others offices to chat and hang out

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance issues need to be taken more seriously; too much turnover at the consultant level places even more pressure on the senior consultants to train, review deliverables, and do business development
