Tom James Company is a career not a job

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I have been working at Tom James Company full-time for more than a year

ProsThe greatest sales organization in the world. Built soley on priciples and by charectar centered people. Though we are a massive salesforce (500+ worldwide) we maintain an extremely tight knit, family atmosphere. The people you meet within the company will be lifelong friends. You have the ability to write your own paychecks and schedules, and mingle with the most successful people in your city.

ConsLike anything worth having you have to work hard. There is absolutely no room for slackers or people who want 'vacation days.' If you want vacation days go teach 2nd grade science. At Tom James, you build your business from the ground up. When you become successful it is because you made it happen. If you fail, it is your fault. There is no micromanagement whatsoever so this job requires highly motivated people, with a hunger and drive for success. This is my first job out of college and will be my only job for the rest of my life. It is a lot of work, long hours, and endless rejection, but so is every other sales job in the world!

Advice to Senior ManagementDo not change a thing. This company is ran by first class people and I trust ever decision made at their end.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
