I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time

Pros

Great People, Great Scenery, Decent earning potential

Cons

Benefits downgrade each year, 0-1% Salary increase in record profit years. You are just a number and will fire you at the bat of an eye. The company openely expresses the need to change the current sales model since it is not working and claim they realize it is VERY difficult to make sales numbers, yet since April (6 months) they have fired 31 of 95 salespeople for this reason. That is 5 each month. Every 1st of the month the topic of conversation is who all got walked out today. I know 3 people that have been here for more than 3 years. I heard one sales person comment to an employee that moved to sales"why would you do that? That's the fastrack to the unemployment line".

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When people start in sales at Thomson Reuters they are basically told to understand( by colleagues) that this will likely be a temporary position (6-12months) and there is a good chance they will be let go for reasons outside of their control and to not stress and just work hard. This is also common knowledge in other sales companies as people leave here and get sales jobs elsewhere only to spread the truth about working here. Is this the culture you are promoting?

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great products, people, and company values. Not a great deal of competition w/r/t the products they sell to the market place. Young talent rewarded with upward mobility, but not salary incentives.

    Cons

    Technology Organization is in disarray. Company does not pay or develop talent like it used to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
