I worked at Thomson West

Pros

The free coffee in the C building is pretty good.

Cons

Management cares only about the appearance of things and not for real suggestions for improving processes. Promotions and advancement are not based on ability and people magically appear in higher positions when no one else knew that a position was open.
Compensation and pay raises are too closely tied to an immediate supervisor's personal opinion of an employee. Despite the fact that the reviews are supposed to be objective and based on facts, when managers fail to follow this procedure, there is no recourse.
I had a rotating array of at least half a dozen people to whom I reported to at any given moment.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Cull the herd of numerous middle managers that contribute nothing to the company other than filling chairs in constant and unnecessary meetings.
Institute procedures to allow employees to have a voice in the review of management.

    Pros

    Industry leader. Decent Compensation. Westlaw is the best product in the market, way better than the competitor Lexis Nexis.

    Cons

    Career advancement is difficult. You can stay in sales or account management, take a pay cut to go in to management and then wait for years to progress after that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    respect your employees and pay them accordingly.
