Mgmt. more interested in CYA than YOU
Not saying (Current Employee), FloridaFebruary 8, 2014
Pros: located in sunny florida
Cons: poor management and resource allocation.
Very disappointing. The only direction you get is misdirection. I have never witnessed a more conflicted warped pr overly complicated approach to what I finally realized was a very simple program.
Sometimes you really are the smartest person in the room.

Great Place to work
Payroll and Benefits (Former Employee), Fernley NVDecember 2, 2013
Pros: i loved the job and the people
Cons: the holiday season
When I worked at amazon.com the culture was work hard, have fun make history. I am told from others that work there now that this is a sweat shop and no one is very nice. It is sad to see that companies that start out caring, end up caring about the bottom line and treat employees poorly.
I really think this company would be better served to go back – more... to the old days when it cared and they actually had fun. I loved this job but I am told that is not the case for current employees. – less

Worst Experience Ever
Multi State FMLA (Former Employee), Reno NVOctober 26, 2013
Cons: location is horrible, atmosphere is horrible i would not work here
This place was the worst experience of my life. These people are locked away in a room and have meetings all day! They meet all day and want to get the work done and if you do not have anything to say during the meeting then you are not a good fit.
This was the worst, worst, worst culture I had been in for a very long time and I would not recommend – more... working here. – less

Stressful, Micromanaged, and Lack of Good Leadership
IT Helpdesk Analyst (Former Employee), Bradenton, FL.February 16, 2013
Pros: see below
Cons: see below
Part of my job was to liase between the business teams and the IT department. Most of the people that I worked with are good people, but most of the management is two faced. The IT department is badly micromanaged and the managers care more about themselves than their own employees. I found out the hard way that my former manager wouldn't hesistate – more... to throw his employees "under the bus" whenever he was put under pressure. TriNet is groing fast, but their IT division is a crapshoot and all of the different IT teams are going in different directions. Teams working on different projects don't communicate with each other, so it's no surprise that when the projects get implemented into the production something breaks. TriNet is like China's economy, it's growing very fast but doesn't have a solid (IT) infrastructure and sooner or later it's going to collapse.

On another note, their is no training program or infrastructure for new employees. You're basically thrown to the sharks, and have learn everything from your teammates on how to do your job. – less

Uncoordinated, de-motivating atmosphere
Not Going to Tell You That! (Current Employee), Bradenton, FLNovember 23, 2012
Pros: location
Cons: poor management, demotivating atmosphere, slow working environment, no new hire orientation program
The management at this company is unbelievably dense. They take great pride in suckering you into taking the position and once you're there - you're on your own. No introduction to the company. No one to guide you. Everyone has their own clique formed and you're not welcome. They also appoint people to management positions that don't belong there, with – more... no training on how to supervise others. Most of these 'managers' are self absorbed narcissists that take great pride in controlling others. Job descriptions this company puts out claim a 'fast-paced' environment; this is completely untrue and you will be left twiddling your thumbs for most of the day. They are very good at de-motivation. This place is disgusting. You have been warned. – less

Great Place for Professionals
Regional Consultant (Former Employee), Dallas, TXOctober 19, 2012
Pros: great product
Cons: sometimes too micro-managed
The hardest part is finding the quallified prospect, the most fun is showing the prospect what TriNet can do for them. All of the co-workers are educated, talented, and fun to be around. Management is success driven and sometimes under more strain than they want to admit, I learned that if you are successful, they really like you and if you are not, – more... they will give you the help to move you either up or out. – less

Fun management and co-workers with opportunity for growth
Benefits Specialist (Former Employee), Reno, NVSeptember 25, 2012
Pros: free coffe and tea daily. vendor discounts.
Cons: short breaks, lots of overtime required.
Rewarding and challenging piece of the position was handling Tier 2 phone calls. These required lots of research and resolution. This was a pleasant part of my job.

The company offered me a job in their Florida office knowing I was moving from Massachusetts to take it.
New Business Development Specialist (Former Employee), Tampa, FLJuly 20, 2012
Pros: the beautiful weather in tampa!
Cons: not a very honest company, treated their employees poorly.
I was told it was an administrative position and it ended up being more a telemarketing position. It was difficult for me to adjust to that kind of position. I worked there for 6 months then one day they called us into the conference room and told us they were laying off the entire department, 2 months later the company was sold.

Great People & Culture, but Management is a Crapshoot
Workforce Management Specialist (Former Employee), Bradenton, FLMay 22, 2012
Pros: great benefits, culture and work environment.
Cons: limited advacement.
I was hired as part of a small team with hopes of moving to a management position in the near future. This was a relatively new department, and I had come from over 15 years of managing similar teams. I quickly learned that the person most responsible for my career opportunities did not "like" me for some reason, even though she was the person who hired – more... me. It appears that she did not like to be challenged in any way, or have you disagree with anything she said. There are more than a few people still employed here that feel the same way, yet no action is taken. This company will lose more than a few good people because of her. – less

Disconnect between executive management and employee career paths. No retention policy. Problem-solving communication not welcome across departments.
Sr Corporate IT and HR Recruiter (Former Employee), San Leandro, CAApril 25, 2012
Pros: see below
Cons: see below
Strong product for small and mid sized companies in need of HR outsourcing. Excellent friendships and camaraderie at the employee level. Weak corporate culture with no strategy underway to retain top talent. COO and VP of HR appear not to care about this...CEO should require the COO and VP of HR to develop a more employee and career path friendly culture, – more... an employee retention policy that works, and more informal communication that is problem-solving driven vs. department boundary forbidden. Internal corporate HR has lost the vision and reality of being more HUMANE than process, compliance and deadline driven. CEO is a great salesman and done miracles reversing the challenges from 2011 and now needs to spread his effective evangelism internally and manage his executive staff so they answer more directly to his requirements vs. the board. CEO should be board empowered to hold the COO and VP of HR and all other executive initiatives accountable until real change is in place. Exceptional IT staff. Exceptional Marketing and Sales Teams that need a retention incentive. Exceptional internal help desk, office and admin staff. Outstanding Human Capital, Relationship Management, Operations, Accounting and Legal Divisions. Solid external consulting managers and talent acquisition teams. – less
