    The ability to do great journalism was supported by management

    Cons

    Rampant bias on display

    IT decisions made without consulting users

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees and customers and design products that they will want to use rather than trying to compete with Bloomberg, news magazines, the FT, the New York Times and everyone else on the planet. Choose your battles and appropriate the proper amount of capital.

    Pros

    The compensation and benefits are unbelievable. Time off and holidays are great. The work environment is very relaxed with a wonderful group of colleagues. I enjoyed my managers, and my fellow teammates.

    Cons

    Heavy, heavy workload. The company is growing so rapidly, it cannot keep up internally with new team additions.
    Ever-changing processes make it difficult to know which direction to go.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need more leadership and more focus on SHORT-TERM as well as long-term goals.

    Pros

    I liked working at Thomson as it was a well known company as West Publishing. Benefits were good.

    Cons

    Some leadership decisions in past were questionable-we were short staffed but management thought that they could do with fewer customer service reps.
