    I worked at Thomson West

    Pros

    Once was a great place with good benefits. No longer the case. Bloomberg will chip away at this place until it becomes an also-ran. Attorneys will wake up and realize they have been ripped off. When they do, the company's decline will accelerate.

    Cons

    Incompetent leadership has chipped away at morale for 5+ years. Endless reorganizations, lack of strategic vision, acquiring companies and not integrating them. HR has dark soul (if any).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire yourself.

    Pros

    - Great comp when you're hitting your numbers
    - Top notch products and product recognition
    - Lots of outside respect for the company

    Cons

    - Quotas, miss one year and you're done
    - Long work days, weeks, months...etc
    - Job security is completely dependent on your territory makeup

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at each territory individually before you place quota levels. I was told that this would be a 3 year gig when I took the job. After the first two years I couldn't believe that I wouldn't be there forever. However in year 3, I lost territory that was contributing over 30% of my overall sales but was still expected to grow 10%. What sense does that make?
