    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Decent initial job movement, lots of locations so it's easy to move other places. Health and other benefits were quite good with several acceptable options.

    Cons

    A little unfocused at times, frequent acquisitions and sales can lead to some job instability. The size can be a bit of a detriment as your section of the company may not get much attention from upper management.


  8. Excellent company to work for, but requires patience and a willingness to work well with large teams.

    Pros

    Very employee-centric. Strong commitments to employee development; salaries and benefits were very good. Found that, in general, people were very talented and innovative.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge is that things move VERY slowly, and even minor decisions seem to require a committee to make them. The other thing is that all work is underestimated relative to time and cost, and that missing deadlines is just considered normal; this is a problem for many people.

    Advice to Management

    Empower more and hold people more accountable. Continue your strong communication style and the way you care for employees.

    Pros

    Educated employees, some work hard

    Cons

    5+ years later you can still differentiate between former Thomson & former Reuters employees. TR cares more about making money for the Shareholders than the employees. Its a boys club...

    Advice to Management

    You really should try to retain your tong time employees. The company insight they have is invaluable and cannot be replaced
