    I have been working at TriNet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great pay, supportive leadership, and fulfilling work. TriNet has an awesome culture where excellence is the standard. The pay is higher than average for the industry and top performers are consistently promoted. Semi-annual bonuses and raises are tied to the company's performance, so when TriNet wins, you win. Executive leaders have the vision required to grow and evolve the company in a sustainable way. Work/life balance is expected and modeled by leaders, allowing everyone to take time off to recharge.

    Cons

    Change is the only constant. TriNet is constantly evolving to build an enduring company. While this can be difficult, it is also encouraging to see the dedication our most senior leaders have to making sure TriNet is built to last. With bonuses and raises (for non-commissioned colleagues) tied to the company's performance, you may have a very successful year, but if the company doesn't perform your bonus/raise may not be all that you expected. During busy periods you will be asked to put in the time needed to make sure TriNet is successful.

    I have been working at TriNet full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Resources for sales people, tons of training and technology to make you successful -Management and leadership investment in your success, they say it all the time, but they also mean it and will follow through on supporting you to succeed -Positive work environment with helpful and non-toxic coworkers -Huge income potential -Good mix of structure and resources of a larger company, but they still value creativity and allow for new ideas

    Cons

    This job is hard work. They hire sales consultants that have 5+ years of sales experience that are likely not expecting to have to hit the phones and prospect in the way you have to for this job. On top of that it's a very complicated sale, there are tons of intricacies and the learning curve is steep.

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

    Pros

    Wonderful direct manager, good benefits and supportive of my life goals.

    Cons

    Senior leadership of department and above, were a lot of secrets and lack of leadership. Set a low bar for morale in the team which leads to high turnover in the role which takes 6 months to learn. The type of place if you lose someone it impacts the whole team as everyone’s workload will increase for 6 months or so. Also diversity is a challenge, where their celebration of pride month is to send the company a link to the Wikipedia page on Pride.

    Pros

    Great benefits, ESPP, good learning opportunities

    Cons

    Priorities are not aligned, leadership is lacking, no alignment from top and that trickles down, lack of diversity, very reactive, takes a VERY long time to get anything done, as an HR company does not implement best practices recommended to clients, generally the negative reviews on Glassdoor are accurate

    Pros

    TriNet benefits a good, the pay is average

    Cons

    Shark tank salespeople try to squat on every opportunity in salesforce and prefer to claim company names in case the sales come in, through the telemarketing. They try to work with alliance partners, CPA's, Brokers but the sales reps don't know how to partner with them. They still try to maximize first year profits over clients best interests.
