    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.

    Pros

    An absolute waste of time with these guys! A 3rd time of interviewing with them & despite assurances I was royally screwed around. There was really no job there, no clearance by HR & a joke. Total waste of time & if this guy represents their management & style they are not worth it.

    Cons

    Waste of space plus low payers & no management .

    Advice to Management

    If you want talent do not muck them around especially with false jobs, pay & try to be more professional if possible.
