I worked at Thomas full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

In my seven years at ThomasNet, I gained extensive knowledge and experience. As an Application Engineer, I learned the proper ways and techniques of technical/consultative selling, as well as, the vast experience in working with various levels of management at an organization, and the ability to confidently run meetings with C-level executives.

In addition, I learned the intricacies and differences between all types of companies, as well as, understanding the requirements/demands of different markets. And, last but not least, perfecting my public speaking skills through conducting in-person seminars and webinars.

All of these skills have bettered me as an individual, but also has made me an extremely well-rounded valuable/attractive professional. I cannot thank ThomasNet enough for all of this.

Cons

Due to the flat/horizontal management structure, certain departments don't have as much growth opportunities as other departments.

    I have been working at Thomas full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Used to matter. Used to be fine folks that worked here.

    Cons

    All has changed. Only people left are survivors, not worker bees. Management top heavy, most useless. Backstabbing is lifted into a high art.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the fat cats. It's the only chance of survival. Get rid of the deadweight instead of constantly laying off the ones who do the actual work.
