I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Pretty decent insurance benefts, but the benefits go downhill each year and the prices always increase.

Cons

Low wages in comparison to other companies, little room for advancement. Once in a position, you are pigeon holed. Sneaky ways of letting go of their veteran employees via layoff or termination when they make too much money or are very close to full retirement age. Rearranging departments to cluster the highest paid and closest to retirement employees so they can eliminate those positons.

    Pros

    Great employee training opportunities, access to a ton of global resources, ESSP, and great annual all expense paid sales meeting.

    Cons

    There was a lot of red tape for acquired companies to go through for approval. There was also a push to conform to Thomson Reuters' branding.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Provide assignments that are tailored to employee's strengths. Hire motivated middle managment that do not end up as bottlenecks.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of good people scattered around trying to do a good job themselves and help their coworkers to do so as well. Some very good products, and SOME very good management.

    Cons

    Management seems to have no clue what goes on in some parts of the company. Bad middle management happily undermines the company, slows down attempts to fix things and move forward. Good employees stuck under bad managers can't reach their potential and are often pushed out. And overall product strategy does not match what customers want. Customers feel nickeled and dimed to death - but in thousands of dollars rather then pennies. Also, pay can be quite poor and some people have to work obscenely long hours, while others get away with hardly any work at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a way to detect and clean out the incompetent, heel dragging middle management. Employees who get stuck with bad managers have no one to turn to; that needs to change.
