I worked at Thomson Reuters (Tax & Accounting)

Pros

Looks good on a resume, lots of problem solving, if you have to work Saturdays, they have it catered, lots of young people, managers are not overly strict. Potential to make good money if you can get transferred to a new department.

Cons

As an intern, you have to work 60+ hours a week and take non stop calls. It is an incredibly stressful job. There is a lot to learn. You must learn basic tax law, systems, and the tax software. Selection of full time candidates is not based on performance. Workload is not worth the pay. Because the workload is so high, coworkers are much more likely to get a little testy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hire the best employees! I did an internship at Thomson Tax and accounting, in which I ranked first in overall productivity of over 45 interns. I ranked in the top 3 in total calls taken, calls per hour, and client contact %. I had a perfect customer service rating and was well liked by my coworkers. Despite this I was not selected for a full time position. Instead they hired on individuals who had taken over 1300 less calls than me during the course of the internship and were clearly less knowledgeable. This has happened to other interns as well. Management picks full time employees based primarily who they like the most.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters (Tax & Accounting)

    Pros

    There is some flexibility in non-busy season

    Cons

    No coordination between mangers regarding deadlines
    No respect for new employees
    Business development plans are hidden from majority of staff, therefore no wide input to make a better product. Everything is covered under the hood for individual credit
    Pay rate is low, with no clear merit incentive.
    People are stressed out with no professional ethics.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take in some new fresh blood and encourage better input from wider range
    Get to know your staff better, not just the managers.
