    Startup Fun Culture with perfect Professionalism and Work

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIts the perfect mix of a professional work culture and startup fun. You learn a lot, get mentored a lot, get challenging work but see people full of energy around you playing games, shouting, laughing, throwing jokes, making fun - that is you never get bored.
    There will never be a lack of energy and fun
    There will never be a lack of learning and quality work

    ConsDon't go by the negative reviews. I had really low expectations from the company after reading them but am so glad now that I joined it

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great place to work despite recent integration pain

    Middle Management (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsFlexible and entrepreneurial work environment. Lot's of potential to grow the business by putting together solutions from businesses acquired over the years but not yet fully integrated

    ConsHard to get paid well. Varying quality of senior management team. Culture clash between "lifers" and new young blood mostly brought in through acquisitions

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire on merit for senior positions and not just based on past loyalties

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The company is going swiftly downhill since S&P take over

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    Pros- No pressure, Chill environment
    - Coworkers are nice

    ConsThe company lacks vision or direction since the S&P take over. The CEO is arrogant and is not afraid to reduce salary across the board at the cost of driving every last talent away. Both of the guys who interviewed me quit within 6 month. People are leaving every week, it's truly sad. To cut cost, the company outsources a lot of development to india. The quality is greatly reduced. Then, as a bandaid fix, they hired Microsoft consultants at 500 dollars an hour, while handing out yearly raise less than the natural inflation rate!
    It feels like the upper management are clueless of what they are doing.

    Advice to Senior ManagementResign. You guys are so terrible it's helpless!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Boring, mundane work

    Software Engineer (Current Employee)
    New York, NY

    ProsRarely need to work overtime/weekends
    More freedom in terms of work hours than other jobs

    ConsBelow market value pay (given the hrs, it's fair though)
    Most development work is borderline data entry/content management.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNone.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Sales

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsGood work/life balance.
    Pays well enough.

    ConsLou Eccleston, CEO, and Bob Coppola, CTO, in particular, are clueless to what really is going on within the company, and proven by their actions (or lack thereof), have no idea how to run a technology company.
    Resources are spread too thin and product development has essentially ceased to exist.
    Political nature of a large and old company makes it extremely inefficient to do almost anything.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop hiring current or former Thomson employees. That company is a mess and we will just end up their same dismal position if we do not change our ways

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
