    Current Employee - Data Analyst in Gdynia (Poland)
    Current Employee - Data Analyst in Gdynia (Poland)

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

    Pros

    - Good benefits American style
    - Possibility to learn although you really have to do it by yourself
    - Colleagues are helpful
    - Chance to work from home in some departments

    Cons

    - Wages are too low and there is absolutely no way to get a higher position (some of them work there for years and still level 2)
    - All the best positions are taken: there is no more need for specialists or seniors, as the workers who started 5 or more years ago are clinged to their desks and will never leave because they're settled
    - Trainings are often superficial and one has to deal with many responsibilities despite the lack of knowledge: team leaders are fully aware of that
    - The company recently cut all costs so managers decided to hire only interns to make them do the work of the employees: after six months the history repeats and the ones who stay have to train new ones over and over, not mentioning the lack of expertise (of the new ones and some old ones too)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe they are already aware of what they're not doing.

    Former Employee - Architect in Bangalore (India)
    Former Employee - Architect in Bangalore (India)

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

    Pros

    Flexible management. Flexible timings. Fair visibility of work done out of Bangalore.

    Cons

    Management used to change like a musical chair. Very difficult to attune to a single management style. No product ownership in Bangalore. No technical influence from Bangalore. Most of the control elsewhere. Excellent performance was overlooked repeatedly. Considerable amount of politics. Very few people with good technical knowhow. Very weak management in India. India office only playing also rans rather than a trendsetter. Lot of blaming Indian employees, back stabbing. Its very convenient to blame employees in India and get on with the status quo. Management does not take responsibility whatsoever. Only technical people are blamed for anything. Considerable politics at the office. Also, no diversity in hiring. HR was useless.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to upgrade your ethical standards. Need to reward performance, esp. extraordinary performance. Need to step up leadership roles and ownership of products, rather than just follow other centers. Need to recruit managers who are technically competent. Incorporate 360 reviews.
