    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible schedules, great location in Los Angeles

    This company has layoffs every 2 years so you have no job security. They do not value their employees. Raises and bonuses SUCK! India, India, India! They are outsourcing a lot of jobs to India!

    Advice to Management

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Benefits package is very good. Part of the larger Thomson Reuters business. Product line has a lot of potential. Generally modest work hours.

    Cons

    Company has a history of a lot of management turn over. Consequently there are vacuums of leadership in many areas. Many projects lack authoritative accountabiity.

    Advice to Management

    Hire higher quality managers and developers.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been here a long time and have seen the company grow. There are some great people around from when the company was smaller. People are friendly and easygoing. There are exciting projects going on if you are in the right group. There is lots of change.

    Cons

    The parent company is getting too big. We've lost most of the little perks like parties, bonuses, etc. Vacation time for new people is very small. Not much room to progress within the company, you will probably have the same job forever. Company getting more into outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the take-over. The small sub-companies do much better without the corporate parent's nagging.

    Pros

    The company has a solid reputation in the marketplace, and a great benefit package. Senior management tried to make it an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    My division was acquired several years ago, but it never seemed to assimilate under the Thomson Reuters umbrella. Felt disconnected from Corporate. Questionable promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember that company culture starts from the top. Put more emphasis on assimilating your acquisitions into the Thomson Reuters culture.
