    I worked at TriNet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The people are great to work with, truly. I've made long term friends at TriNet that I am happy for. That's literally it. Due to the recent changes in the service model/workforce, and sky-rocketing healthcare costs (that, like its customers, TriNet is not exempt from), the pay and benefits have tremendously decreased in value.

    Cons

    TL,DR: if you value your work/life balance, wellness and career development....proceed to TriNet with strong work boundaries. More below: A few things: - A culture that does not support the wellness, development and support of their employees. TriNet intends to expend you for a lot of labor for very little in return. You are warned by management that you could expect an emotional/mental breakdown 6-9 months into the position. Actual quote: "you will find yourself crying in the bathroom..." - Work from home prior to the pandemic was arduous at best and inconsistent at worst. Flexibility has probably improved...not because TriNet believed it should...but because the pandemic offered no other choice. - PTO has very little flexibility for employees who are not glued to their work. Blackouts make it near impossible to spend the holidays with your family. The amount of work you return to de-incentives desire to take PTO. - Changes to the service model (which I'm sure was done in the best interest of the business, I get it) disrupted entire career paths. Many employees who intended to build a career with TriNet and some who were already doing that, were either discarded completely or placed in positions that did not align (at all) with their career development. - Management did not have the tools to support their direct reports. They are not up-to-date on information, changes and resources --sometimes giving client-facing employees incorrect information. Consistent training lack tremendously and employees (and the managers, probably) suffer for it. - Performance reviews and merit increase are as transparent as a brick wall. Client-facing employees have hard numerical metrics to abide by, while their managers cannot attest to the work they *actually* do, because they themselves are not client facing. On a bad day, clients can receive a survey and express their frustrations with that situation...congrats... now your potential increase went from 2% to 1.5%. When asked what one can do to get a higher increase, the response? "Well....a 5 rating is practically impossible. At least, that's what they told me in the training". As an HR professional myself, who managed an HR product, and advised other small and mid-sized businesses on HR matters....an "impossible" performance metric is not a good one. - Diversity is horrendous. TriNet made an entire point about how poor their DEI is and did nothing about it. Instead, they were okay with having a tile on the intranet that linked to the Gay Pride wikipedia page, or the lazy Black History tile that linked to the US Congress website or the lazy "People Matter" campaign that is simultaneously tone deaf and ironic due to the experiences of their employees....particularly employees of color.

    Former Employee - Senior Client Success Partner in Nashville, TN

    I worked at TriNet full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great team and manager and good pay.

    Cons

    Company is continually changing and has completely remolded their processes internally and externally. Externally, instead of a dedicated Partner for the client to reach out to, they have to call a 1-800 number. Internally all positions have been revised, much higher work load that is impossible to balance and they laid off more than 50 employees 3 months ago.

    I worked at TriNet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pretty good money, great benefits, some amazing people, managers included. Culture was awesome back in the JB era. With WMC, it deteriorated quickly. VERY QUICKLY.

    Cons

    Enjoy stress, pointless KPIs, redundant check in video calls (5+ daily), and a "leadership" team that has no trust in their employees? This is your place! Major management changes in Outside Sales, Inside Sales (ISO) and the C suite. People are jumping ship to work for competition in an office while Trinet is still remote. If someone is willing to make the move from a remote position to an in-office role (with the same pay) during a pandemic, they can't be doing too many things right.
