TriNet has a good moral and upbeat philosophy .
Support from management
My direct report was very supportive at first, but as time went by he presented a very convoluted work environment and sent unclear and conflicting messages/directives throughout the team. This was a general perspective shared by the majority of my ex co-workers. In fact the work environment created by the direct department management created a very toxic environment and turn over is high.
The team work with co-workers was excellent, and everyone was always more than willing to jump in.
Freedom to work independently
This is a tricky question. As a risk consultant with the company you were granted the ability to work from the office, work from home and create your own schedule. However, toward the end, it felt like all the work produced was micromanaged.
Company wide communication was clear, concise and positive. However, my internal department message was constantly changing and sometimes a little unclear what our main objective was.
Both male and female genders were welcomed.
Attitude towards older colleagues
The direct report in my department didn't seem to have much age based discrimination, but towards the end of my employment with the company, it was apparent that he was hiring younger candidates, with no or 1-2 years of industrial experience, for lower compensation.
The company offers tuition reimbursement and encourages growth.
Overall compensation for your work
My pay scale was compatible/fair with the going market value for my profession, due to my previous director.
Office / Work Environment
The satellite branch that I worked from held a lighthearted and involved place to work. There was some long term co-workers and new faces. Although, turnover was frequent.
The office/branch was very wide open and the flow was worker friendly.
I was always excited to perform my job and go above and beyond for the end user client. Toward the end I was working on average of 65 to 70 hours a week just to complete what was being asked of me, which hampered the quality of my home life.
Company image based on my direct contact with co-employers/clients, was reflective of being both negative and positive. The overall perception of the general company's direction, with my co-workers was negative.
I worked for this company for 14+ years and job security was solid, but as mentioned, the culture seems to be changing in the wrong direction.
The office had double wide entry doors and the office stations were easily accessible.
Office safety, including ergonomics, was focused on.
The work performed for your assigned client base is very rewarding, especially when the client meets or exceeds your set expectations. The exciting portion of the job is being able to switch gears from one client to the next, due to varying nature of business. The most challenging part of this job was completing the additional administrative task that are thrust upon you by management, not allowing you to be in the field and interfacing with clients, where you would have the biggest impact in this profession, instead of spending 70% of your work week attached to a computer.
Inclusive / Diverse
The team that I worked with was very diverse and this created a great work environment.
