    Pros

    Thomson Reuters on CV

    Cons

    -Terrible and flawed services and product
    -Very tough sell
    -Sales team can not make sales
    -No commission because no sales are made
    -Sales team bills 0 numerous times
    -No Marketing to promote product
    -Lots of cold calling with no results
    -No employee growth
    -Unhappy clients and law firms

    Advice to Management

    Wake up and realize your services do not work in the UK. You can not expect to have a product that worked in the U.S. be as successful in the UK. Wake up and realize why so many people have left or had trouble selling the product on your sales team.

    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at FindLaw (London, England) in April 2010.

    Interview

    4 stage process, starting with telephone interview, then face to face with manager then meet another manager then finally a director.

    One thing I did not like is that they lied about the OTE

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    despite my best efforts they would not give me more that 27,000 basic, but they gave me a commission guarentee
