Current Employee - Storage Engineer  in  Eagan, MN
Current Employee - Storage Engineer in Eagan, MN

I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year

Pros

Working in the technical organization, you get to experience scale at a level that very few other places come even close to, managing assets across dozens of datacenters across the globe. My coworkers are pretty good given my experiences at other employers. The management has good direction if not maybe a little too much ambition. The benefits are good with a choose your coverage type of health plan.

Cons

WIth the scale so large, even the smallest of changes becomes a large undertaking. The Eagan, MN campus while nice is lacking of amenities compared to other large corporate campuses. In the technical organization, positions are very siloed, so branching out of your area can be a bit more difficult than other places.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Add some nice amenities to the Eagan campus (home to nearly 7000 employees) such as a minute clinic or beverages beyond coffee. Be more aware of headcount constraints and get people into positions a bit quicker.

    A nice facility but you need to look deeper before considering a career here.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    The building I work in offers a USBank branch, Caribou Coffee shop and several Sodexo cafeterias which will soon be changing to Aramark where Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are served. The work space is modern and clean.

    Cons

    Career Development is nonexistent in some departments. I personally have been denied access to free onsite IT classes because the course did not fit within my current job description even though I work in IT.
    Pay is not competitive and as someone in another review said raises average around 1%.
    Transferring into another position within the company is denied in some departments no matter what your education or job skill level.
    The main reason to _not_ accept a position here is the new 'Health Care Benefits' which change in 2013 from a co-pay to co-insurance plan.
    1. A monthly premium - rates went up for me.
    2. A deductible you will pay before insurance kicks in - varies from high $100's to $1000's
    3. 10% -20% -30% is what you will pay until you have paid an additional amount when full coverage takes over.
    4. If you smoke you will pay an additional $600/year.
    5. If your spouse/significant other declines insurance at their employer so they can be on TR insurance you will pay _another_ $600/year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop micromanaging.
