Carl T. Holst-Knudsen
Pros – Everyone was committed to their jobs, people that would be considered "veterans" loved the place and enjoyed teaching the newer workers the ropes.

Pros – Telecommuting. Flexible work schedules. Suburban work location.
Cons – Company continues to struggle financially. There has been repeated restructuring and downsizing over the years. Unfortunately, these changes have been largely unsuccessful at achieving the objective.

Management is slow to make business decisions.
Repeated budget cuts that reduced or eliminated funds for professional training.
Pros – The benefit package is very good, with full coverage medical and dental plan.

Pros – The Horsham area suburb is a nice area.
Cons – There is no formal training. Management used fear and intimidation to try and get better sales results from employees. Micro-managing every step of the way. No positive words from management. Long time employees left because business model is antiquated.
Advice to Senior Management – Learn how to manage people. People must have training and hear positive words of encouragement. Morale is bad and that is due to poor management and a shakey business model.
Pros – Learned a lot... love the sales reps.
Cons – Management too secretive and not respectful of it's employees
Advice to Senior Management – Keep your employees in the loop.
Pros – I worked in the Corporate Information Technology Group based out of Horsham, PA. This was a great team because it was comprised mainly of the former Thomas Technology Solutions and ThomComp companies.
Cons – The corporate office out of New York did not know what to do with all the talented folks based out of Horsham and most of them were let go or left on their own to pursue other opportunities.
Advice to Senior Management – Keep on keepin on.
Pros – In my seven years at ThomasNet, I gained extensive knowledge and experience. As an Application Engineer, I learned the proper ways and techniques of technical/consultative selling, as well as, the vast experience in working with various levels of management at an organization, and the ability to confidently run meetings with C-level executives.
In addition, I learned the intricacies and differences between all types of companies, as well as, understanding the requirements/demands of different markets. And, last but not least, perfecting my public speaking skills through conducting in-person seminars and webinars.
All of these skills have bettered me as an individual, but also has made me an extremely well-rounded valuable/attractive professional. I cannot thank ThomasNet enough for all of this.
Cons – Due to the flat/horizontal management structure, certain departments don't have as much growth opportunities as other departments.
– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – It has convenient location to transportation
Cons – Micromanaging of staff creates a toxic and hostile environment.
Advice to Senior Management – Go back to what made the company a place people wanted to come too.
Pros – Work is easy though a bit mindless after a while
Nice people as coworkers, supervisors are touch and go
Plenty of overtime at a good rate
Good place to gain experience
Plenty of screw around time once you learn the system
Plenty of training

Mandatory overtime (sometimes weekends)
Not a lot of up front information on why you do things
Company seems to be stagnating and lower level ideas are ignored
Behind technologically in our work and online pressence
Disconnected departments that don't do their jobs, making your harder
Advice to Senior Management – Listen to your people
Push harder for better programs
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
