    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    My immediate colleagues were outstanding. You were pretty much free to come and go and work from home as you please.

    Cons

    After Thomson bought Reuters, Reuters were then rather curiously put in charge. Almost immediately, the red-tape grew out of hand overnight. You need to raise a ticket to get almost anything done, rather than being able to just pick up the phone and talk it over with someone. When I left, I think I was using about 6 or 7 different ticketing systems. It is crippling and stifling. It kills the ability to get anything done. Ir crushes morale.

    Then Thomson were back in charge, and we were soon back on their familiar path of having a round of cost-cutting measures every 6 months. Due to the failings of the flagship product, Eikon, the company seems incapable of generating any organic sales and growth. Millions of Dollars continue to be poured into Eikon, while older profitable parts of the business are starved of resources. No travel. No socializing with colleagues. Ancient equipment. Below-inflation pay rises. It seems incredible that management never had a plan "B". There seem to be active attempts at trying to cover this mess up; e.g. with the annual staff survey being curtailed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Staff morale is on the floor. You need to get out there and deal with it.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There is job security, a lax work environment, and flexible schedules available.

    Cons

    HR mistreats employees, provide low merit and salary increases, poor management. Fail to promote within the company. Very fast turnaround amongst colleagues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be honest with your employees, stop lying and underpaying them, and focus on providing better management.
