    I worked at Thompson Media Group

    Pros

    good smart people, lots of opportunities for change and advancement, great employees, smart managers. they were great about equipping employees to do their job well. company wide communications were strong.

    Cons

    constantly doing acquiring and divesting. was in chaos and not very organized. there was a lot of waste in travel and disorganization. a lot of politics, a lot of layers for approvals and to get things done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    get the place organized so change can be dealt with more readily. reduce the management level politics if possible. they were silly politics like affairs and gossip which frankly I don't have patience for.

    It is no surprise they declared bankruptcy

    Pros

    Some of the people were smart and enjoyable to work with
    When you start it seems like a good place to be

    Cons

    Management doesn't understand people
    Management doesn't understand the industry and how it is changing
    Management isn't interested in what customers want
    Management is concerned only with CYA and golden parachutes

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The regulatory information industry today isn't the same thing as consumer magazines from 30 years ago. Listen to the rank and file--they know much more about what is going on than the kiss-ups you have surrounded yourself with.
