    Pros

    Despite continuing turmoil (See, Cons). as with most large institutions your experience here will largely depend on which group or business unit in which you work. There are some fantastic and brilliant people working here and most are dedicated to helping push the company forward in the right direction.

    Cons

    Thomson Reuters continues to suffer from a lack of unifying vision 5+ years after the union of the two companies in 2008. Growing by ill- (or under-) informed acquisition has, to a large extent, resulted in a patchwork network of people, systems and strategies.

    There are true visionary thinkers in the management ranks (e.g., Mobile’s Bob Schukai), but their message gets mired in bureaucratic red tape and top management inaction resulting in lost opportunities and making it difficult to move the company forward at more than a glacial speed.

    Ultimately, management is going to have to come to the critical understanding that it will have to drastically streamline and downsize the company in order to deliver profitability and maintain relevancy. The recent job cuts are perhaps just a foreshadowing of that.

    Sales top performer now moved on

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Great facility, some good management, decent benefits, caribou coffee store on site

    Cons

    Sales commissions cut significantly, real sales skills do not need to be used to be successful, I know a lot of people say this but it is true at Thomson that some territories in print sales are simply too small with not enough accounts to hit your quota number, I don't believe territories are structured with historical financial sales and revenue data, benefits getting worse, some managers beginning to micromanage too much

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay sales pros they are good what they are worth. Replace managers that are not top rep material themselves, go back to 2013 commission structure
