Pros

They walk the walk when it comes to putting employees first. They communicate very often and effectively with their employees. Morale is good even during this poor economy. They seem to clean out dead wood employees. I can't say there's anyone here who isn't pulling their weight (except a few salespeople).

Cons

Comparatively low pay. Also sales force seems to run the show which makes it difficult to implement process improvements.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You really need to have management driving innovation and improvement and not cater to sales whims. We've spent a lot of time and money developing software that streamlines efficiency but because sales refuses to use it - and management won't make them - the rest of us have to suffer.

    Pros

    Many interesting colleagues who are passionate about what they do. Interesting products and services which can make an impact in customer's work.

    Cons

    May colleagues who don't have a good perspective of the customer. Can be bureacratic and slow moving especially for those use to a more entreprenueruial environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you take time to made decisions and make changes you should give the same time to employees to make goals.

    Thomson Reuters - a place with no meritocracy

    Pros

    TR is a company that will never fire anyone for doing a poor job. You can work there for years and hide out and avoid doing work. If you are lazy this is a good place to get a steady paycheck.

    Cons

    Because there are so many lazy people who have political connections to senior managers, those who work hard will not get recognition or be promoted. If you are an ambitiious hard worker, stay away from this company. YOu will be frustrated by the lack of meritocracy

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to truly look at who is doing work and who is good at sounding lik they do work. If the hard workers don't get recognized and paifd and promoted you wil be left with a bunch of people in suits and tie who sounds good , but get nothing done.
