    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation time. Management is great. My boss is always willing to work with us on anything. As long as you get your 8 hours in they are pretty flexible about start/ending times. New facility with coffee and filtered water. Starbucks in the building! Tuition Reimbursement is not the best, but it is pretty good.

    Cons

    Some of the typical big company protocol, like yearly reviews and paperwork. Internet can be really slow sometimes which makes it hard to do work.

    Former Employee - Software Engineer in Eagan, MN

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Thomson Reuters values its engineers highly. They are well compensated for the area, receive good benefits, and are even provided with beer on the company dime from time to time. Work with very motivated people who like to do their jobs well.

    Cons

    Thomson Reuters shoots the average for compensation, but expects better than average employee contribution. Tuition reimbursement is offered though it apparently takes some time to actually get on the list of recipients. Advertises career advancement but features employees who have been stuck in their roles for longer than they wanted to be.

    Pros

    Everyone in the building is kind and helpful. If you screw up, no one will make you feel bad about it, they will just help you learn from your mistakes.

    Cons

    The location. It's in an expensive part of DFW so almost everyone has to commute here since a decent house is out of - at least my - price range.

    Pros

    I was working in FindLaw within Thomson on a small team and it felt like a family. The atmosphere in the FindLaw part of Thomson was wonderful; I didn't have a lot of experience with the other areas of Thomson. I learned a lot at my internship with my manager going out of her way to ensure I was doing tasks I was interested in and learning as much as possible. I had exposure to working with full-time employees, contractors, and remote employees from India. I gained great experience and had fun doing it.

    Cons

    The Eagan campus is huge and very easy to get lost in. There were days where I didn't have a lot to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing. I loved my manager; I felt she really cared about me. If you can continue to foster this environment, you'll go far.

    Pros

    The people were outstanding at Thomson Reuters

    Cons

    In the finance department, there seems to be much more emphasis and value on former CPA's as opposed to individuals with Finance degrees or advanced finance certifications like the CFA in regards to vertical movement.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work

    Great place to launch a career in sales, tax, or IT

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of exposure to working with very well known clients. Allows you to see how tax/accounting and software/IT mesh. Inside Sales is a great place to sharpen any skills you want while learning about the company and industry. Name recognition is second to none, which makes "cold calling" a whole lot easier. Work life balance in relation to pay is phenomenal.

    Cons

    The same ones typical of any large company in Corporate America (Changes in reporting structure, responsibilities, job requirements, can make it hard on new folks to adjust)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    None. I think they are adjusting well to customer and market demands.
