    Pros

    Thomson Reuters has great benefits, flexible time off, and a good management team. Our office environment is friendly and team oriented.

    Cons

    We have some times of year that are very busy and can require pretty substantial overtime. The compensation seems to be on the low end of the spectrum for my field.

    Advice to Management

    I would encourage our management team to reward their top performers with better verbal and monetary rewards. I would also encourage them to invest more resources into training employees so that they are more recognized through relevant accreditation and feel more prepared for their work.

    Pros

    Good location.
    Decent codebase.
    Fairly advanced Perl programmers in upper management.

    Cons

    Fairly advanced Perl programmers in upper management. Seriously, do you want that type of cowboy approach to business decisions?
    Technical leadership basically nonexistent. This place could benefit from pair programming methodologies, but it won't.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not a universal advocate of Agile/Scrum methodologies, but you need to adopt this -- quickly -- if you intend to keep expanding your team and its capabilities. No, outsourcing everything to Beijing is not the answer. Your senior programmers whine about it? Tough. They are not effective at conveying what they know to their teams, and the work suffers as a result.
