    Great Place to work

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEncourages diversity, good pay, great offices, office culture is the best in all the places I've worked. The company cares about work/life balance, HR seems to know what they are doing.

    ConsThere is not a lot of advancement, I started in an entry level position and it takes a few years to be considered for promotion. There is not a lot of places to climb up the ladder. Granted, the company encourages you to flow in other business units.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great learning experience

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsIt's a well-established company so you know that you have a secure job. Office environment is conducive for working, not too laid back but not too uptight either. I particularly liked the e-learning resources because it allows employees to access trainings during their free time even if they are in their workstations.

    ConsThe work we did was for a different country so sometimes it doesn't feel very encouraging that our skills and resources are utilized not for our own country.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI hope the company is considering expanding their services to include products and services for the Philippines and increase opportunities for Thomson Reuters employees there.

    One of the most valuable learning experiences of my career

    Human Resources Business Partner (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsFantastic benefits, great people to work with, exposure to very sophisticated processes/practices. Lots of opportunity to learn from both peers and superiors.

    ConsIt's a huge company, so only the general downsides to that. I didn't get to know others in my same organization as much as I wanted.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
