Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Consultant

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

Pros

Expectations, and standards are high, but if you knuckle down and get through the first few tricky weeks/months as a consultant, growth can be achieved rapidly. With that growth comes better benefits... and uncapped bonuses. I was promoted to team leader after approx 3/4 years and then again to a more senior position in the management team a few years after. The strength of the brand and the reputation of the TF product and, most importantly, the TF staff mean “twiddling of the thumbs” moments are non-existent. There will always be work to do and enquiries to book. Biggest pro working for the company; as a colleague said recently, we forget as staff, some of us are fortunate enough to go on “1 or 2 holidays of a lifetime every year”. Another great thing about TF, I’ve been with them nearly 10 years and met only a very few people in the company I didn’t like.

Cons

Just some kindly advice for any potential candidate; This is not a Silicon Valley Tech company; there are no chill out rooms replete with bean bags, no complimentary smoothie bars, nor running tracks... on the landscapes roof...it is a very client focussed company meaning you are expected to be at your desk pretty much for the whole working day. Multiple considerations, based on the company’s needs, mean although we get a lot of leave, it can be tricky to actually book the time off. Open pretty much every bank holiday inc Easter, NY & Xmas Eve, which, although of benefit to some clients, from a staff point of view, can be a tough one to swallow.
