Note: This post reflects my personal opinions, and not those of my employer.
You know that you work at a big company when the Wall Street Journal covers your email problems.
Thomson Reuters is a conglomerate with about 50,000 employees across the globe.
Thomson Reuters is different than other conglomerates like Berkshire Hathaway or Samsung, because it has a standardized set of operating principles, consistent branding across divisions, and shared IT and HR resources.
My company apparently also has massive shared listservs.
I first noticed the problem after glancing at my email around 8 a.m. yesterday. I somehow had 54 emails despite being at inbox zero the night before.
