I have been working at Thomson West full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Work life balance, great pay, wonderful supervisors and great officemates! Though it is hard to get accepted in this company, it's totally worth the effort.

Cons

There isnt really a con to working, every company has its downsides. Sometimes we just have to adjust tothe workload. West supports a lot of products so sometimes it can get confusing.

    I worked at Thomson West full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Upward mobility possible if you make your quotas and are a team player.
     - Great money back in the day (I left the company in 2008 before the market crash) before law firms started cutting costs and subscriptions.
     - Great products and services to sell.
     - Strong brand and very strong resources in Eagan for product information and sales support.

    Cons

    - Territories typically change every year (challenge to develop meaningful client relationships).
     - Highly unstable environment (products come in and out of your bag often) and high turnover
     - Experience can vary widely depending upon your sales manager
     - Highly complex compensation plans
     - Zero base salary (again, this was a while back - I believe field sales people are paid salaries now).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Institute better vetting processes for hiring and promoting management; develop processes to ensure consistency of customer experience.

    This is a very large bureaucratic company. Know that going in.
