    Pros

    TR offers the opportunity to work with some very nice and capable colleagues, the chance to take in-house courses, some travel, and adding a good brand name to your CV. Salary is competitive on first joining. Work-life balance potentially very good, depending on manager.

    Cons

    Strategy and direction appears to change every six months. The company makes redundancies on an annual basis, but this only ever affects normal employees, while incompetent managers and clueless senior executives are shifted from job to job instead of including them in the redundancies. Thomson Reuters tends to grow by acquisition but does not tend to get rid of the executives of the acquired company (see above). This means that companies take a long time to integrate and employees follow inefficient processes "because that's how we always did it at xyz acquired company". Big companies need to have processes, some bureaucracy etc., but TR takes it to a new level of inefficiency. It's like a leaky supertanker. It ends every year a bit lower in the water, and everyone's worried, but they chuck a good number of employees overboard at the end of each year, and so the ship stays afloat.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cut bureaucracy and get rid of highly paid non-performers.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
