    Pros

    There are lots of opportunities to work in great locations as Thomson Reuters is in over 100 countries. The company culture is highly geared towards promoting work-life balance, and parts of the company have great reputations in the market.

    Cons

    The company is extremely large so it can be difficult to change direction or implement new projects. There has been a distinct lack of accountibility for decision makers, and management does not place enough value on recruiting the best of the best. While the company has great values on paper they do not always translate into the best practices.

    Advice to Management

    Do not be afraid to try something new, but test, test, test. It is better to do something right and have a higher chance of success than to rush something to market.

    Pros

    Work life balance is enabled by a culture which treates employees like adults and is flexible about working from home. Global reach means that your colleagues are from an wide range of countries and cultures

    Cons

    Not enough emphasis on individual performance means there are too many people who are experts at finding a different group to punt problems to rather than actually contributing Too many groups are incapable of seeing beyond their tightly defined areas of responsibility. No evidence that direction given from the top actually translates to action at the bottom. Poor management more concentrated on in-fighting with peers than in building a business. Terrible morale in markets division
