I have been working at FindLaw full-time (More than a year)
Unlimited/uncapped income potential. Products we sell are good. They work very well. No micromanaging. Work from home. Good benefits. Thomson Reuters is a huge company, you can transfer from within to different areas of the company to almost anywhere in the world.
After one year, low base salary. You make all your money on new sales. Account management has its own department, but dealing with existing clients is not the focus of the company for the CDC job. Constant prospecting, new sales is where its at. Renewals do not seem to be as important and is not rewarded very well.
Advice to Management
Have a base salary that attracts and keeps good talent. Have more focus on holding on to existing clients, because it is harder to obtain a new client than keep an old client happy. Make it easier on sales to sell by fullfilling faster and better.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 6+ months. I interviewed at FindLaw (Eagan, MN).
Met with the senior manager of the Subscription Services team and we talked about the types of projects that this team handled. We also discussed benefits, and I was told about the hiring freeze that was about to be implemented over the next six months
There was a 6-month hiring freeze right after my interview, but once it was lifted they made an offer. It was $1000 a year less than what I'd made at my previous job, so I negotiated. The best I could get was the same salary, and since I was unemployed at the time (laid off), I took it.
