TMS wants to be Digital but, with a few exceptions, lacks the competence, and client support to get them there.

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

ProsIf they are successful in building something new there, you would be getting in on the ground floor and that could lead to great opportunities. You get the opportunity to work with the world-class McDonald's brand.

ConsDecision making happens by committee at TMS. Risk mitigation is the number one driver above any other factor, including profitability. Client pressure from the McDonald's jaggernaut to eliminate risk completely from every decision ever made (without compensation for the excessive overhead this demand creates), is the barrier standing in the way of TMS's successful future.

Advice to Senior ManagementIf Legal positioning and risk avoidance is the number one influencing factor - which it is - you have to have a Lawyer on staff who can make intelligent decisions about the presence of acceptable risk. Outsourced lawyers do not need to care about the balance between risk avoidance and cost of Operations. Segregate the Digital team completely from the remainder of the company until successful momentum is underway. After there is a successful Digital core, then begin folding the rest of the organization back into the newly created seedling organization.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
