    Pros

    Thomson Reuters has a lot going for it. Bright people, lots of innovation, and the ability to move quickly and deliver world-class projects.

    Cons

    It's a chaotic place to work, with a lot of disruption to and dysfunction in upper management since 2011. Sales are off, the market questions the company's viability for the long run, and very significant layoffs have happened since 2010.

    Pros

    TR has a good set of benefits and a very robust HR portal. I would say that the HR department was easily the best aspect of the whole thing. From student reimbursement and a descent vacation package to direct deposit and etc… they provide a complete package.

    Cons

    As with previous acquisitions, we really never seemed to be part of TR. Our name changed, the transition of domains and phone systems was slow and tedious. And, because we became part of the "greater whole", our individual department contributions became meaningless. Our department was profitable and growing, however, because the over-all business unit had catastrophic sales delivery failure, we suffered from major cut backs along with everyone.

    Advice to Management

    If a department it too small to really be a factor in the over-all profile of business - just sell the thing. And, get to know the people you just consumed. Good people from small companies that are acquired just get tossed without any evaluation.
    My opinion is that I was managed by a group of spreadsheets. No humans, no objective analysis, just if/then statements.
