Principal Centered Company

Sales Representative (Current Employee)
Austin, TX

I have been working at Tom James Company

ProsAfter 3 years with TJ, I feel qualified to give honest feedback. When I started, I didn’t think that I would be with TJ for my whole career. I was just taking a job. I realized that this company is not an ordinary company - it is based on principals. I learned very quickly to either apply these principals or disregard them. I am thankful that I have chosen to apply the principals. As with any career, they will work very successfully if they are applied. I have been blessed because of my clients, my hard work and my support from accounting, our factories and my leadership. Since I have been with TJ, I have been able to buy a new house, a new car and travel all over, which has all happened during a very difficult economic time. All this has been accomplishable not because of me, but because of applying principals. I believe in the motto “you don’t build companies, you build people and people build companies.” I am thankful to be a part of this company.

ConsThis is a client building business. There is no question that my first year took a great deal of work. Much like a first year lawyer at a major law firm or a doctor in the first year of their practice, you must build a great foundation. This job will also have a tendency to cause your weaknesses to surface, which for me was beneficial - it helped me to realize what I needed to work on. Lastly, this is a client building business, so I did have to learn how to take client criticism properly. I now realize they weren't trying to criticize me, they were just trying to help me grow.

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease continue to grow people by tying them to principals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
