    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Products and services are extremely valuable to the medical community and the insurance provider industry... The core company asset is its basis of medical data (cost, services delivered, ICD code data). Thomson Medical is the defacto standard-bearer for regional medical data analytics.

    Cons

    Thomson hires people as contract-to-hire to weed out those candidates that have a life.
    The contract companies Thomson exclusively uses are no-benefit, no-day-off, stingy companies who do not stand with or by the people they hire.
    Employees are given a couple of days to listen to the unhelpful full-timers then expected to learn massive systems within days. If the prospective employee isn't a Michael Jordan, they are unceremoniously laid off by email.
    Contractors (even those intended for future hire) are treated as third-class citizens - working hard as full-time Thomson employees: arrive late; leave early; take long lunches.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people who are team players.
    Scrap the sweat-shop "contract companies": at least find contract companies who treat the contractors as valuable assets
    Support developers by spending actual dollars to have a staff of development support for build, deploy, and tool maintenance.
    Get RID of full-time employees who are no better than career USPS paper pushers. The company is full of sloth-like non-producers.
    Think about this: the people who work for you will rock and roll if you treat them like humans with lives and families and actual human qualities.
    Look into automated development environment setup, perhaps use Virtual Machine servers that are push-button-create environments.
