    Pros

    It is very easy to get by quite successfully - including advancement - while only working 35-40 hour weeks so long as you have the skill to finish your work in that time.
    Prove yourself and everyone will quickly trust your opinions, even if you're a fresh college graduate.
    This company is a great stepping stone, but bad for long-term stays. My 'Overall Rating' for a long-term employee would be more like 2 stars.

    Cons

    It's very hard to find work that will be challenging.
    Outside of pay, the benefits are very subpar.
    Bonuses for non-managers, even very well performing engineers, are at best about half your average paycheck.
    Pay increases outside of promotions are limited to a maximum of 5%.
    Thomson Reuters doesn't really believe in firing people. In over 20 years, I've seen only one person get fired, and it was because they very purposefully damaged an executive's vehicle.

    Advice to Management

    Remove all the set-in-stone standards. Why should someone have to be a full time employee with the company 2 years in order to get promoted - whether or not they've been a contractor for years prior? Make it easier to get promoted within a team as opposed to being forced to switch teams in order to advance. Offer raises that are competitive - averaging less than cost of living adjustments is only contributing to the high turn-over. Most of these are comments towards HR as opposed to explicitly towards management.

    Pros

    Great flexibility, very good work/life balance

    Cons

    Slow pace, bureaucratic, this is the place where you go to retire

    Advice to Management

    Pick top three businesses you truly want to invest in, and rid of everything (and everyone) else.
