    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Thomson Reuters in October 2014.

    Interview Details

    I applied for Business Development Executive position at Findlaw/Thomson Reuters Business on LinkedIn. I've got an email at the same day to arrange a phone interview.
    A day after I spoke to a Sales Manager. He was very rude, arrogant and insulting! Instead of asking me relevant questions about the role he was just gave me very negative and harsh critique about my current role as a Recruitment consultant!
    At the end he said I am not suitable for the job and hang up the phone.

    Research Scientist Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 5+ monthsinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in April 2014.

    Interview Details

    they contacted me for a telephone interview. Schedule and timing was very clear beforehand, two of the interviewers (four in total) could not join the phone call.
    The whole call was one hour and thirty minutes (I think it lasted a bit more because I was enjoying it):
    - 30 minutes presentation of the company
    - 30 minutes presentation of the candidate
    - 30 minutes of technical questions

    I liked the atmosphere and the attitude of the interviewers.

    After a few monhts, they contacted me for a face-to-face interview.
    The Agenda is very tight (from 11:30am to 7pm) but it looks very promising. I'm looking forward to it.

    Interview Questions
    • Questions covered broad aspects of machine learning, algorithms, information retrieval and natural language processing.
      None of the questions was particularly difficult (if you work or do research in these areas).

    Project Manager Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied in-person – interviewed at Thomson Reuters in October 2012.

    Interview Details

    First applied through the company website and got a reply stating that my salary expectations were too high for the role. However a few weeks later the hiring manager called me to arrange for an interview.
    Attended the interview and, although I wanted the job, I found it unsettling that I was being interviewed by my future manager and one of my future reports ant the same time.

    Business Graduate Program Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Anonymous Interview Candidate in London, England (UK)
    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took a dayinterviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2012.

    Interview Details

    Interviewed through a recruiter on the phone and was asked for a 2:1 interview two weeks later with the Head of Graduate Programs and a former BGP program member, now a Strategic Planning Senior Associate.

    Questions were fairly unspecific to Thomson Reuters and were more concerned with how one reacts in certain situations. A few were competency based (asking for real situations and my responses) whilst others were based on hypothetical situations (eg. do you prioritize personal achievement over group achievement if utility outcomes are equal for both decision branches?).

    Overall the process seemed somewhat haphazardly organized and it was certainly not the best interview I have had. For instance, it was not until half way through the interview that the Head of Graduate Programs realized that the other interviewer did not have a feedback sheet. Generally speaking TR seems like it is still ailing post merger and the impression I received from both interviews was a significantly less organized a professional company than many of their competitors - Capital IQ, BBG, FactSet etc.
