I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

The people are really terrific. A lot of very sharp people in technology. Generally, I see a can-do attitude everywhere which is pretty amazing given how the last couple of years have been. People genuinely seem to want to help you succeed, and at least from a technology standpoint, the company seems to be moving in the right direction to get its costs in order.

Cons

The dreaded "Minnesota-nice" is a horrible feature of this company where people smile, agree with you, and then completely go back to doing things the old way. Too many businesses are relying on legacy to stay alive rather than engaging in a forward-looking strategy and business plan. Too many sacred cows. Morale isn't great given the poor to non-existent salary increases that have been the norm for way too long. There is still also a Thomson versus Reuters mentality around the company and too many different tribes.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be bold. Kill off low performing businesses and reinvest in the future. Go private. There is no value in you being a publicly traded company when the majority ownership is still with the Thomson family.

    Pros

    Decent pay, great benefits, a place where you can grow and learn. Tuition reimbursement, 401k match, vesting after 4 years not 5, Heath care opens from day 1.

    Cons

    Can be volatile in terms of job stability, lay off rumors, etc. Management turnover can be high. Many support jobs moved overseas and that is ado elm

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Transfer networking back to the US!!!! Moving 95 percent of the GSOC/GNOC to India has caused more problems that the cost savings.

    Pros

    I can't think of one

    Cons

    In the middle of nowhere, permafrost at management level, just went business casual, not allowed to work from home, zero flexibility, they do not encourage thing - just obeying, no raise in two years.feels like a company out of the 40s.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Innovate and get current
