Pros

There is career advancement at Thomson West. However, even though the "merger" happened over 5 years ago and Thomson was the acquiring company, the Minnesota-based West Publishing culture still prevails.

Cons

If you are in the Eagan office, then you are in the center of the universe. In the field, it can be difficult to get things done without travelling out to Minnesota.

Advice to Management

For a large organization, West is fairly nimble and there are a lot of smart people in the organization.

    Pros

    The people are respectful and motivated. Regular hours and the suburban location. Many in management support taking risks to improve the way we go about our work.

    Cons

    Pay is average. Some management positions are not posted.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the communication. Keep an eye on the new generation (Millenials) and how they operate/what motivates them.


  2. "Not a great place to work, accounting games are the norm."

    Pros

    They hand out generous bonuses at the director level and above. They make appropriate investments in technology and tools, although the training is often inadequate and implementation is done too quickly.

    Cons

    There are a lot of politics at the higher levels of the company. They do not regularly share information across business units. HR is horrible. They do not pay for performance. Raises for top performers are usually around 3.5% to 4.5%, while raises for poor performers are usually between 2% and 3%. They do not try to attract top talent.

    Advice to Management

    Attract better talent and pay for performance. Do not be so short-term focused on financial results. Many managers push revenue to the balance sheet or overstate expense accruals to bank for the next year. Also, keep a close eye on your software capitalization (FAS86 and 98-1) and acquisition accounting.
