    Pros

    Solid company to work for. They really care for their employees. I feel like a valued member of the team when contributing.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a grind. Can feel like the same old thing day after day. Management could use a little help with how they manage senior reps. Little bit to hands on at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out. Leave senior reps alone. Raise the base salary substantially if you don't want people to leave after a few years of success.

    Too much micro-management. Need to identify better qualified leads

    Not a very challenging place to work

    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Dexter, MI
    Current Employee - Sales Representative in Dexter, MI

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    good 401k matching and the on boarding & training process is great.

    Cons

    Health care, no room for advancement, despite growth they keep making budget and bonus cuts, "open door management" doesn't really mean anything and the fact you work in the middle of a cornfield with old dirty carpeted walls isn't the ideal work environment for most. The job is also very very very seasonal leaving January-April pretty miserable as you are virtually screamed at for calling during tax season and August-October are more deadlines so you are only left a few decent months to sell.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more competitively with the rest of the technology industry and invest more trust and responsibility into your employees. Also, upgrade the building or start a remote office near a more thriving area to keep quality talent longer.

    Too Corporate, Lost touch with Employees

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Culture & Values
    • Career Opportunities
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dexter, MI

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

    Pros

    There are some great and supportive people that work at TR. My boss is awesome and has helped my career immensely.

    Cons

    The corporate edicts are tough to take and there are lots of them. I have just lost faith in this company and their ability to truly serve customers and value their employees. The employee voice has been lost as well, you either take what is handed down or you leave, those are the only options.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There isn't much to say, all local control has been lost so it's pointless to give advice.

    Great company with a lot of opportunities

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Dexter, MI

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work schedules, great people, mentoring program, opportunities to try things outside your job description, opportunities to work from home, generous perks, recycling programs, popcorn machines

    Cons

    Long hours during busy season, some entrenched managers, career planning is something you have to make sure you take charge of yourself, profitable business lines have to support less profitable ones.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try to keep some of the small-company feel that we used to have before becoming a multi-national.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Lots of work and always hiring. You'll almost always have something to do especially during tax season. Good opportunities to move around and the grow/learn (they paid for 80% of my MBA).

    Extremely flexible schedule in the development department.

    Cons

    Lots of overtime. Since the company focuses on tax and accounting there is lots of OT especially in the support department. Be prepared for OT in the range of 225-325 hours per year depending on where you work.

    Inflexible schedule in the support department.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Great work environment. People there are really nice. You'll learn more in 3 months there than you did in 2 years of college as a Computer Science major. Good pay for interns.

    Cons

    A little stressful as release dates approach, but not overwhelming.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Company invests heavily in training employees, good compensation plan, excellent product line. Wide spread company and many locations make relocation possible. Upper management is easily accessible and open to discussion.

    Cons

    Inconsistant evaluations, many decisions based on politics rather than ability. Unclear path for advancement. Relationships with clients no longer valued more than statistics, despite constant lip service by management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not allow this department to become focused solely on metrics; clients are beginning to notice the difference. Create a consistent and transparent policy for performance correction.
