    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, brilliant culture, promote and develop from within. They put on parties and events for staff and the office is nice.

    Cons

    They tend to have one person doing the job of two people in almost every instance. As it's a big company there is endless red tape and complex processes. It often feels like one hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Not ideal!

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff, hire more employees. Also, don't limit funds for marketing, promotion etc and then tell us we've made record profits!

    More simplification of processes is required. More attention with development and career opportunities. Good job on the employee engagement.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great brand, benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    No structure for career development resulting in talented people leaving the organisation. Senior management are not progressive with their thinking and are focused on margin savings rather than developing the services we have to tackle new markets and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the areas of the business that are strong and value the individual personalities and knowledge of existing staff before they move to our competitors.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great ethos and enthusiasm from senior leadership. Really believes in equality and diversity, and is making lots of changes to improve the business and drive it forwards. Really exciting time to be working here. CEO is a really genuine, excellent chap.

    Cons

    Change is still filtering down from the senior leadership, so there's still a lot teams/groups not quite getting their heads around working together and not just looking out for their own objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Please get lower management to see that helping other teams can only be good for all of us. Please hire some more people at the 'coal face' to get the data onto the products. Please create a non-management career-progression track.
