    Pros

    Great brand, benefits and work/life balance.

    Cons

    No structure for career development resulting in talented people leaving the organisation. Senior management are not progressive with their thinking and are focused on margin savings rather than developing the services we have to tackle new markets and growth.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the areas of the business that are strong and value the individual personalities and knowledge of existing staff before they move to our competitors.

    Pros

    Great ethos and enthusiasm from senior leadership. Really believes in equality and diversity, and is making lots of changes to improve the business and drive it forwards. Really exciting time to be working here. CEO is a really genuine, excellent chap.

    Cons

    Change is still filtering down from the senior leadership, so there's still a lot teams/groups not quite getting their heads around working together and not just looking out for their own objectives.

    Advice to Management

    Please get lower management to see that helping other teams can only be good for all of us. Please hire some more people at the 'coal face' to get the data onto the products. Please create a non-management career-progression track.

    Pros

    Great ethics, good culture with Senior management at the time

    Cons

    Too political; too many people hanging on to the past. Core systems still archaic

    Advice to Management

    Watch for the politicians. Lots of people who just want to hear "yes"

    Pros

    Friendly staff, plenty of areas of the business, lots of training

    Cons

    The left hand did not know what the right hand was doing, ever. Unorganised, large business changes and redundancies.

    Advice to Management

    Improve staff retention rates

    Pros

    Good benefits, some of the people are decent. TR looks good on your cv

    Cons

    The flexible work life balance only exists if you have a decent manager. To much favouritism. Work hard, they pile on the work, be a slacker they give you more responsibility ( make you a manager ) but you do no work just " attend" meetings and take others work as your own . Get out while you can, don't get sucked in !

    Advice to Management

    Get some training or to the higher CEO have a clear out - to many chiefs not enough Indians. To many layers of management who are not required and on big salaries

    Pros

    Working with Thomson Reuters has been the most positive experience so far in my working career. Immediate management take a genuine interest in the progress of their employees. There is genuine career advancement. Training is available and recommended.

    Cons

    No downsides so far, though pay increases have not been particularly good over the years - but understandable with the way the economy went.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay increases please! Management makes an effort to keep good staff, and a little more renumeration would be really good.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, great broad experience. No limit to possiblities if you are prepared to work for them. Integrity. Very supportive.

    Cons

    Small pockets of favouritism (but no worse than anywhere else). Under performing individuals not dealt with quickly enough.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make difficult decisions. Leaving under performing individuals unchecked demoralises the wider team.
