    Working at TR is often described as rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic. But I would say that as a whole, TR is more like Berlin in April 1945. While the foot-soldiers out in the field are asked to do the impossible with ever less resources and people, poor equipment, and absolutely no training, the senior management huddle over their map-tables, restructuring the company at will, while all the time plotting how to advance up the ladder and carve-out an ever larger empire for themselves. Meanwhile, thanks to TR's very own little Barbarossa moment - the disastrous merger that created the company - the downward spiral seems unstoppable, and no amount of Town Hall meetings by the ministry of propaganda is going to change that. Morale has completely collapsed at grass-roots level, as a result of a program of non-stop redundancies stretching back to the last century, below-inflation pay rises, a lack of training, poor equipment, and stifling red tape. At the time of the merger, Thomson and Reuters were just too different in terms of their cultures and way of doing things, and we have lurched from crisis to crisis ever since. And don't even think about going to HR for help if you find yourself in a pickle; if there is a dispute between a manager and an employee, the manager will always win, every time.

    Advice to Management

    Pay rises that aren't actually below the rate of inflation. When PCs get to 7 years old, that is too old. More staff. Training courses. And please reinstate the annual staff survey; wiping it out of existence just because the numbers came back bad is a trick worthy of Soviet Russia.
