Support from management

It is a revolving door of leaders with an insane amount of middle managers. All of which are talented, good people who are faced with so many internal hurdles that more time is spent on managing the internals that the external begins to fail. Once that happens they marge some divisions or sell others off.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Remove obstacles to sales.

What I like about the company

I had a large number of resources available to recruit good people.

What I dislike about the company

The working environment for sales is extremely difficult and frustrating to both the customer and the TMO employees. This makes it very difficult to hit the objectives and goals. It was often that I spent more time on getting TMO to accept Terms and Conditions from a customer (such as the City of NY) then on actually making the sale.

Company Culture

The company culture is based on the 4 "i"s but is really only about shareholder value. There is very little or no concern about the customer, their needs, or how to improve their process. Thermo has a very take it or leave it approach.

Support from management

Leadership changes every year and every year there is a huge learning curve with new management. This makes it difficult for sales and the development of critical customer relationships. Often times management has no experience in the customer segments thus making it that much more difficult to put the customer first.

Career Development

Very dependent on your relationship with your manager. I learned after leaving that while TMO is impressive on your resume there are a number of companies who do not view this as a positive.

Overall compensation for your work

If you are with a company that has been acquired by TMO you have about three years before they hit your comp plan or make it very difficult to keep the one you have. There are some really great benefits - e.g. tuition reimbursement.

Job Security

there is no job security unless you are a mediocre worker who does not interact with others and only focuses on working 9-5. If you are an overachiever this is not the place for you.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Put more permanency to the Sr. management teams. Let them really experience the customer process, understand the business, and how to grow based on those factors. The GM's sole focus is to make sure they hit the number to get their bonuses and have no interest in the customer.

What I like about the company

Large company with lots of resources available.

What I dislike about the company

Much. Pay is based on salary.com figures and not what the employee is actually worth to the company. If you are willing to put in the extra time and succeed it is unlikely that you will be recognized or rewarded for it.
