    Pros

    Working in a news room is exciting. As an agency news producer, this job gave me a lot of hands on experience and put me in a position to cover breaking news, and make decisions about what to cover and how to cover it.

    Cons

    This company does not take good care of its employees. I worked here for 5 years, and never received a raise. Health and other benefits were minimal. I was sent into dangerous work without the proper training or equipment. A very testosterone-driven atmosphere with big egos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees an opportunity for a career. Take care of them and they will take care of you.

    Pros

    - Active support from management to diversify skill-set. No propensity towards pigeon-holing employees.
    - Concrete and timely communication about expectations.
    - Great exposure to various facets of the online advertising ecosystem.
    - Strong culture of knowledge-sharing

    Cons

    As a media publisher, Reuters has the same struggles as those of other online publishers - wherein advertising budgets are moving away from "guaranteed" buys. This makes it infinitely harder to predict revenue streams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on standard processes globally and communicating all elements of revenue to the new employees.

    Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global business, international perspectives
    Part of company that still has some purpose beyond profit. Editorial operation and company's Foundation do a commandable job.
    Flexible working conditions for the most part, little micromanagement.
    Not exactly a fully product-driven organization yet, but products are improving and post-merger mess is behind. Customers still mostly respect the brand so there is hope.

    Cons

    Board seems to be mostly after shareholder cash return rather than investment.
    Non-business central groups (Technology, HR, etc) can be very bureaucratic and major a drag on the different business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding C-level execs, crowding at the top usually only leads to costly infighting.
    Diversity is something you'd rather see rather than talk about.
    Companies thrives on good products that clients love: make product excellence a priority.

    Pros

    Flexibility, with option to WFH when needed. Good Work/Life balance as long as you do not abuse. Management seems to be interested in helping with your career goals

    Cons

    Too cliqueish. Make friends with the right people, your good. If not, you will struggle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that are actually "hands on" with the systems and day-to-day activities when making decisions on implementing processes to really know the impact.

    Pros

    Diversity of opportunity for talking on many roles and leadership positions. Self training classes available to take to advance learning for career.

    Have to wade through tough times. When economy turns negative, slower to react to adjust. Seems like more turnover in recent years.
