    Great Place to Grow

    Current Employee - Project Manager

    I have been working at Thomasnet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    In the digital media department, all employees are tasked with their own duties, clients and workload, which is great to have the freedom to run your own schedule without annoying micromanagement—and management is open to new ideas to making the job/department more productive. Work hard, and you'll get recognized for it.

    Cons

    It'd be nice to have more flexibility with telecommuting, but I guess with calls and meetings, it can be tough to permit it.

    I have been working at Thomasnet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Fun office environment with managers who truly care about their employees. We've had out-of-the-office team building activities, holiday gatherings (you can - and are encouraged - to dress up on Halloween!), birthday celebrations, and more. You become a part of the ThomasNet family from your very first day on the job. In addition, the work itself is interesting and engaging. You'll never be bored!

    Cons

    It's NYC, so occasionally you'll be on a call and have a really loud firetruck trying to get through traffic, with sirens blaring (happening as I type this). A little distracting when trying to discuss serious issues with a client. Also, the conference rooms are often very cold - sweaters mandatory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue doing what you're doing. And healthy-food vending machines would be cool.

    I worked at Thomasnet full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Been around for a long time. It has transitioned from print to web with a good business model. The sales force are good about no over promising on the packages sold. I met a lot of people who have been there a very long time.

    Cons

    They seem slow to change when it's really needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company could do more for the employees with a matching 401K and maybe provide coffee.

    I worked at Thomasnet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Culture, freedom, and pleasant office environment. If your meeting your sales goals they are chill so I was ok but 90% of reps will never stay over 9 months IMO.

    Cons

    High turn over due to unrealistic and mostly unattainable goals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try selling what your expecting your employees to sell. The director of the office never sold one thing over the phone. Nepotism is rampant in NY main office.

    Pros

    Made more money than originally promised in 1st year. Able to handle sale without involving another colleague. Monday to Friday hours allowing for time with friends and family.

    Cons

    Management continues to push the bar higher. Management are sticklers for getting to work on time. No cafeteria.

    I worked at Thomasnet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    It is a really great team to work with; in particular, the ThomasNet.com crew. Overall, there is good leadership with a clear vision of how to grow the company. There are plenty of stimulating projects to work on. The benefits program is fair and they are generous with vacation and time off. I would definitely recommend ThomasNet as a good place to work. I only left to move to the West Coast and they sadly don't have an office there.

    Cons

    New York can be a tough place to live - I prefer Seattle.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire more smart people and give everyone a raise. :-)
