    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you want to work in the city, the Seaport is definitely an up-and-coming area. The cafeteria is great and there are plenty of food trucks around in the summer. Onsite fitness center. Work/Life balance.

    Cons

    People seem to want to stay under the radar here. No one works very hard and people don't seem to want to innovate or be open to new ideas. Even though the company is doing poorly, they don't want to change the way they do things. They reward employees who are poor performers. The sales team gets iPads, trips and other bonuses even when they are not performing well. People are incredibly unfriendly and cliquey. There is no opportunity for growth here. Many of the senior level managers and executives have been here for a decade or more and they are completely out of touch with their employees and the market. They take input on products or strategies because they think what they have been doing for the past 10 years is the right way, even though the industry has changed dramatically. The managers I have come into contact with are the ultimate micro-managers, going so far as to monitoring who you socialize with. It's dreadful.

    Advice to Management

    When you ask for feedback from the field, listen to it with an open mind rather than becoming defensive. If you ask someone to perform a task (or do their job), let them do it. When employees tell you they are scared to speak up about the culture, the diminishing benefits, the poor morale and the poor managers, you should figure out how to address this instead of sweeping it under the rug.

    Too much focus on strategic at the expense of current clients.

    Pros

    Honestly, there are none I can think of anymore. This used to be a good place to work but no longer.

    Cons

    There is so much focus on the "next" product that the current ones are suffering through constant layoffs, lack of focus, and lethargic management. The strategic product get tons of resources while the legacy products are being left to die. Client’s complaints are falling on deaf ears as teams point the finger at each other while nothing gets solved. These firms will probably be former clients once the strategic product is ready.

    Advice to Management

    Any advice I could give would be ignored anyway so why bother
