Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Boston, MA
Former Employee - Regional Sales Manager in Boston, MA

I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent compensation plan (for many there) base and incentives generous pay for performance
Good top leaderships, Some middle managers are weak

Cons

Some middle managers are weak so you need to be lucky about whom you report to sometimes. They are always selling divisions and companies there. Beware if yours is sold.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Think about keeping the good companies rather than selling them

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in New York, NY

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Flexible partial work-from-home policy (manager/department dependent)
    - International company with coworkers around the world
    - Possible travel opportunities to other company offices
    - Recognized brand
    - Some flexibility in work/life balance, good work hours
    - Higher than average vacation time, especially after a couple years. 5 weeks not unlikely after several years.

    Cons

    - Poor salary and compensation, HR is an enemy that seeks to minimize pay even if manager argues in your favor. Excuses for sub-inflation based raises, even after great year.
    - Huge corporate bureaucracy
    - Very little room for advancement/growth, no merit based recognition
    - Plenty of incompetent coworkers who's only strength is having been there 10 years
    - Reliance on poor technology infrastructure and support of legacy platforms
    - Heavy offshoring in recent years, frequently with attitude that "10 mediocre/poor offshore resources are still cheaper than 2 stellar local resources".

    TR middle managers have risen to their level of incompetency

    Former Employee - Vice President in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Vice President in New York, NY

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    Central location in Manhattan, close to all public transport

    Cons

    Entire team was made up of low caliber people who had been promoted purely on tenure --- from VP to SVP to EVP. No concept of six sigma, best practice (or even average practice). Both professional and personal ethics and style of management was the worst I ever experienced. Misrepresentation, passing off of low quality work, inaccuracy was the name of the game. They are decades behind their competitors and finally their slipping market share is showing it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform a comprehensive performance analysis of employees by professionals outside TR. Get rid of non-performers. Hire good talent from outside the company or its acquisitions.
