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

Pros

I have had many opportunities at Thomson Reuters and have always had challenging work. The company has been very stable as well which is great.

Cons

It seems more and more that Thomson Reuters is getting involved in social issues. Some of the issues I agree with and some I don't so my con isn't about that. It just feels like it's got to the tipping point where it is too involved. Also, communications from senior management is often not well thought out and is not well-explained which leads to confusion.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Excellent opportunity to move up with hard work - Global opportunities - Interesting work that tasks one's ability to consider scale, platform and multiple delivery channels - Some opportunity to focus on customers, with company's renewed focus

    Cons

    - Some people find it easy to "check out" and still move up, simply based on their ability to take credit for other people's work, look busy and play the politics game - Lower than industry-standard pay - A lot of politics and a focus on short-term shareholder satisfaction over customer needs - While customer-centricity gets a lot of lip service, there are rarely dollars allocated to build sufficient teams, fund adequate research and focus on innovation through ideation around unmet needs

    Advice to Management

    You are right to steer the business toward customer-centricity. Ensure you promote or hire people who know what needs to be done to drive innovation around customer needs. Then, fund contextual research within design teams and practices that can lead to innovation. Listen to your leader/practitioner experience design leaders who are interested in building great solutions more than building kingdom's within Thomson Reuters.
