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

Pros

The company offered excellent benefits, an opportunity to work internationally, and offered opportunities to move to various roles within the company.

Cons

The company placed a great deal of emphasis on savings, but sometimes ignored the ramifications of loss of quality as a result of cutting costs.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

While cost savings are important, quality should also be considered when making decisions. Offshoring activities to the cheapest location to cut costs isn't always the best or most appropriate decision. The old saying, "You get what you pay for" is often true.

    Pros

    Benefits day one. Deluxe campus.

    Cons

    Inside sales is terrible, no training. It's turn and burn with the employees, don't even bond with anyone they are here today gone tomorrow. Every month 5-6 employees are walked out new hire tags are up within days. Manager micro manages you stops by your desk 2-3 times a day what do you have, forget it if you need help..schedule time with me then they don't show up. wasted time on your calendar. They don't treat their customers good, sales rep sells, then the account manager follows up with training etc..the account managers are so over worked they cant get to everyone. They are there to upsell and not help. The last week of the month is blacked out, no time off. The job dictates your time off.Territories aren't fair but quota is the same, who makes these numbers? No quota relief if you have government account during furlows. The quotos are written to go up every month December being the highest , why? to get rid of people. They don't care about you. Marketing and sales don't communicate. Workspace is an ergonomics nightmare, we have paper reems under computers and on the floor for our feet. Computer systems are a joke, so slow..Employees are packed in like sardines. No where go to but out the door. This is a dead end burn out job!!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Care about your customers they pay your salary as well. Put some money in your employees, stop giving all the leads to the NTO reps "order takers". Throw that "penny bong" away what a joke!! It's there so if you sell take a penny and put it in the bong..really?? have some respect!! Sales reps have a lot more talent than you do!!! Get off your high horse chair and talk to the employees act like you care. Ask them what they need. What do you do all day? Try to figure out how to get rid of people?
