    Intern Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Thomson Reuters.

    Interview Details

    I applied online, and after about a month (during which I forgot I even applied) I got a call from HR to set up a phone interview. The woman who gave the interview was very friendly, and most of the questions were pretty straightforward and expected (walk me through your resume, etc) although there were a few curveballs. I got a call a few days later to come into the office for a second round interview with the director I might be working under. This "interview" was more of a 75 minute casual conversation, which was entirely stress-free and relaxed. I got a call with an offer the next day

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied through college or university. The process took 4+ weeksinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in January 2012.

    Interview Details

    Got the call through my University site. Had an initial phone screen with the Development Manager. Was pretty basic stuff about the technology and a little bit of resume.Since I was out-of-town candidate, my next round was over skype with the whole team (3 person). The team members were very nice,professional. I got a feel that the whole work environment was very comfortable and exciting. This round was pretty technical about the concepts however there was no code writing. This made me feel more respected because why would I apply if I didnt know how to ! There was a final interview with the development manager of the entire division which was more to see the cultural fit. The interview process was fairly speedy and the delays were on my unavailability. Felt definitely like a good company and team to work for.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    The process took 2 daysinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2010.

    Interview Details

    I was interviewed by the director of one of the many development groups in Boston campus. The technical questions were very easy, the manager seems to care more about personality than technical skill. First day the manager interviewed me, then they called me to be there again next day, when I met the team. I got an offer later.

    Product Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Boston, MA
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 1+ weekinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2009.

    Interview Details

    You must have some technical understanding. That's probably more critical than having a financial background. Position yourself as someone with User Experience (UX) credentials. That is much needed at the organization. Interview is 2 rounds at the minimum. The company is so large, it's hard to know who you would interview with. Most people are friendly. Be prepared to discuss your experience with PROJECT Management as well. Knowledge of Microsoft Project a big plus for this role.
