    Pros

    Reuters overall is a great place to work. The people are smart, kind and supportive. The benefits and work/life balance are very good. The salaries are competitive.

    Cons

    The company needs to adapt better and be more innovative, particularly in the US, to the Social Media world. Reuters in the US does not have enough of an identity and is not producing products to compete is today's "social media" society.

    Advice to Management

    Be more aggressive when it comes to innovation in the US. Trim the fat in your BD department and invest in product and development.

    Pros

    Reporters are extremely dedicated and willing to go the extra mile

    Cons

    Management has new priorities every 17 days or so, at which point they completely ditch the old ones; it's impossible to know what's expected of you over any period of time

    Pros

    Benefits offered: 401K, better than average vacation. Flex time, some work from home is available. Sick time could use some improvement however usually not a big deal if additional time is needed.

    Cons

    Not many cons at least that are worth mentioning. Six [6] days yearly sick time. Annual raise percentages are not great.

    Pros

    great portfolio of information businesses pivoting towards being fully digital. This is a truly global business with branches all around the world - leverage it well and you can take your career global. I did it for ten + years and garnered an incredible set of experiences and contacts.

    Cons

    The business has many passionate and skilled operators at mid to senior management level, but seems to lack a true strategy from the top, or a culture which can recognise one from the bottom up. The ex Reuters side of the business (now called Finance and Risk) was culturally and technologically spoiled by years of exclusivity pre bloomberg - thats been a problem for nearly 15 years now but somehow current management don't seem to have changed that dramatically. Between technological spaghetti and a depressed sales force there is still alot to fix here

    Advice to Management

    Hire top notch product and sales people , get customer data , and build new products downstream (away from the central org) which reflect where the industry will be in 2020. Do it before your lunch is completely eaten by the other guy, because its happening now.

  8. Too many people doing too little work.

    Pros

    The brand. If you are good at politics rather than substance this is a great company to work for. It seems like everything is done through that political prism. Its an expensive and costly prism to work in on both sides.

    Cons

    Doing the most basic of things take an act of god. Tons of red tape along with unnecessary and harmful dependencies strewn about the system which means doing anything to improve the system is virtually impossible because its too risky.

    Advice to Management

    All that glitters is not gold.

    Pros

    Excellent pay, time off, dedicated to the customer, invests in technology, trains staff, provides timely feedback to employees, Employee stock plan was worth investing.

    Cons

    Need to clean house more often to achieve a higher level of technical ability. A better bonus would make this company inline with others.

    Advice to Management

    Bring in new talent to teach the current employees.
