I applied online and the process took a day - interviewed at Thomson Reuters in March 2012.
Interview Details – Interviewed through a recruiter on the phone and was asked for a 2:1 interview two weeks later with the Head of Graduate Programs and a former BGP program member, now a Strategic Planning Senior Associate.
Questions were fairly unspecific to Thomson Reuters and were more concerned with how one reacts in certain situations. A few were competency based (asking for real situations and my responses) whilst others were based on hypothetical situations (eg. do you prioritize personal achievement over group achievement if utility outcomes are equal for both decision branches?).
Overall the process seemed somewhat haphazardly organized and it was certainly not the best interview I have had. For instance, it was not until half way through the interview that the Head of Graduate Programs realized that the other interviewer did not have a feedback sheet. Generally speaking TR seems like it is still ailing post merger and the impression I received from both interviews was a significantly less organized a professional company than many of their competitors - Capital IQ, BBG, FactSet etc.
