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

    Pros

    Great people and a great location with decent pay, helped by the presence of a strong union.

    Cons

    The company, hell-bent on cutting costs at the expense of worker morale, seems determined to erode the benefits the union has fought to preserve.

    Former Employee - Applications Services Engineer in Plymouth, MN
    Former Employee - Applications Services Engineer in Plymouth, MN

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    My team was small (~6 employees) hosting application services for the eGRC application.
    - Many opportunities for comraderie.
    - Plymouth office has a relaxed dress code, so I wore jeans nearly every day except when there was an important visitor.
    - High degree of access to application environment. Did not feel operationally restricted.
    - ITIL Change Management meant increasingly strict maintenance windows and planning. (Less unplanned overtime.)
    - Vacations were encouraged as a full break and not expected to check email.
    - General spirit of tolerance and HR sensitivity are strongly encouraged.
    - Other teams were generally pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    - ITIL processes and change management were just starting and needed some work. Change Management was unwieldy.
    - Many conflicting priorities (2nd level support, after-hours maintenance, provisioning and some project/development work expected.)
    - On call (on rotation) was sometimes very busy, demanding 6, 7 or 8 hours of work on top of a normal shift.
    - Some legacy personnel are hard to deal with, sometimes contemptuous or condescending.
    - I was laid off from an already short-staffed team. Company upper management is not sensitive to the needs of the business unit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    - Continue work on ITIL Service Catalog and streamlining of ITIL processes as well as business/technical processes.
    - Continue to encourage atmosphere of respect and tolerance, particularly for legacy personnel.
    - Upper management needs to be aware of the needs of the business unit regarding staffing cuts. Staffing cuts may destroy the business unit.
