Pros

Big company with a lot of opportunity IF you get the right manager. Decent pay and benefits.

Cons

Management is absolutely awful. The complete lack of experience and professionalism makes life miserable. Work-from-home opportunity is simply a trap to overload employees with work (no choice but to bring it home and work 60 hours a week). Additionally this company is extremely cliquey. The culture reminds me a lot of high school.

Advice to Management

Seminars on improving managerial, communication, and professional courtesy skills would vastly improve working conditions for all.

    Fantastic opportunity to learn about financial markets and data.

    Embrace innovation at the product level by separating it from infrastructural concerns.

    Pros

    I learned a lot about different aspects of Databases and software development.
    I liked the people I worked with.

    Cons

    While I was there, the Reuters merger seemed more like just another rock to add to the conglomerate, without any "synergies".
    The multiple acquisitions meant multiple ticketing and tracking systems that made it very hard to collaborate across business units.
    It was difficult to not work at headquarters- it felt like a backwater where I got all news months later than those at 3xSQ in New York.

    Advice to Management

    Start rewarding execution over ideas. Visionaries do very well at TR, but their visions never get completedas you would like because those who execute well are not rewarded or even heeded. Depend less on "yes men."
