Beyond the Green Books

For nearly a century, our Thomas Register “big green books” were considered indispensable within the American manufacturing industry.

Building on that legacy, we became a pioneer in employing digital technology in publishing. Today, we continue to be at the forefront of information technology with our content-focused proprietary software platforms that help industrial businesses connect and succeed in an increasingly digital and global marketplace. Thomas’ innovations: industry’s leading supplier discovery and product sourcing platform, content syndication services, web technologies, decision-support tools and a renowned proprietary product (and service) classification system, all help companies create a sustainable competitive advantage.

Our customers sing the praises of not only our services, but they continuously praise our people as well – and, for good reason. Thomas continues to attract the best and the brightest to our various Thomas Publishing divisions. From stellar sales people to digital marketing gurus, below are just a few of the many talented people that work here.


Medical Insurance

Effective on the first of the month after the hire date, full time employees, may participate in our Health insurance program offered through Cigna.

Employees pay an exceptionally low contribution rate toward the healthcare premium.

Dental Insurance

Effective on the first day of the month following the start date, our insurance dental plan offered through Cigna provides coverage for preventive, basic and major dental care expenses.

Prescription Coverage

Enrollment in the medical plan automatically includes three-tiered prescription drug coverage. With this plan, you pay less for generic drugs than brand-name drugs; mail order maintenance medications have a cost advantage with our plan.

    I have been working at Thomas Publishing Company full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility to work from home, 9 to 5 office hrs, lay back environment and close to all the public transportation

    Cons

    No room to grow, unfortunately!
    High deductible for health insurance.
    Employees only know their coworker from the same dept but not the rest even if they work on the same floor and/or if they have been working for over 10 yrs.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure to promote people more often. Have more integration activities so the employees get more familiar and known with other employees from different departments.

    Junior Web Content Analyst Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in New City, NY
    Declined Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomas Publishing Company (New City, NY) in June 2017.

    Interview

    The interviewer was friendly and thorough. They emailed first to ask about my income requirements before scheduling an interview. After someone from HR set up phone interview. She really asked some difficult questioned to ensure I understood what position I was applying to. She dug deep into why I wanted to work for them and made sure I understood that the position was not team based rather it was independent.
