    Great experience during the IPO period for Thomson

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIn late 90 and early 2000, under leadership of Thierry Breton, Frank D, Joe Clayton, Jim Meyer, Dave Spomer, Enrique Rodriquez, Tim Saeger, it was a terrific place to make a new business difference. Our french CEO was a true global leader who lead in the transformation of a high performance organization leading to our success IPO. Thanks to IPO and our continued performance, I was able to put three kids through college. Great years and friendships.

    ConsWith change of top leadership, the culture dramatically changed from a growth oriented global organization to a french centric vision and cost cutting organization.
