Former Employee - Architect  in  Chicago, IL

Pros

Technically advanced, chanllenging job, lot of learn, relatively good pay and average benefits.

Cons

Burocratic, slow, inefficient company. People in higher management are not techincally compitant to run their function.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Higher techinically compitant people in key leadership position who can earn respect of their team. More often than not, people in higher management are found far away from practical and real world. This in turn resulted in selection of technologies, strategies which have practically no probability of success for a given product / project.

    Pros

    I found they were good to their employees. My managers were competent and very good people to work alongside. I worked Westlaw Court Express, which is a part of Thomson Reuters. This is a great entry-level position for recent graduates.

    Cons

    High turnover rate. There is not a lot of upward mobility within the Westlaw corporation. There is always a push for more work from less people which causes errors within the research.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a balance of orders per person and let this be the standard instead of pushing for more constantly.

    Current Employee - Inside Sales in Eagan, MN

    Pros

    Management is outstanding. Lots of freedom to establish work / life balance. Fantastic reputation in the market. Great products to sell. Need to be proactive in meeting management to establish rapport early. For the most part - smart and proactive coworkers.

    Cons

    Very difficult to continue your growth once you reach a certain threshold. If you are okay staying in a position long term you can establish a career with good pay, solid benefits and nice work/life balance. Very tough for people who would like to continue to grow and challenge themselves. Compensation plans always changing. Very difficult to make your months if you aren't given a prime territory (which are given to the most senior reps). The job can be very tedious and repetitive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with your employees to develop a career path - be realistic. Not everyone wants to make a career out of phone sales. Aside from that, continue support and avoid micro-managing. Have had a great experience just wish there were more opportunities to grow.
