It was a bit of a roller coaster, but mostly ups!

Data Support Coordinator (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 5 years

ProsAwesome, eclectic, intelligent coworkers. In my experience, folks on my team were always willing to lend a hand and help out when asked. The people make the oftentimes tedious work not so bad!

ConsWanting to make improvements in your workflow, but being stifled by bureaucracy and silly rules

Advice to Senior ManagementMiddle management = excellent; Senior management = not-so-excellent. You've hired a pretty great bunch of people, you should listen to them more often.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Never judge a book by its cover. Its a lot worse on the inside than the brand suggest.

Technology (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 10 years

ProsYou have a job with a recognizable company name, and that's always good on paper. Lots of accessible free online resources for knowledge development.

ConsThe last 4 years, it appeared the organizational chart kept changing every quarter, with sequential layoffs in droves, which was extremely bad for moral. There is very little upward mobility in professional growth. It has a very stale feel on the inside. Lots of depressed employees. Lots of managers act as bullies and play obvious favorites. Tons of office politics with managers consistently taking credit for your efforts without letting you shine. The management seems intimidated by raw intelligence from direct reports, and quickly shuts down bright bulbs. If you are very good at kissing up, you may be able to survive there.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop deliberately undermining the professional growth of your direct reports.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Red tape, foggy vision, great potential.

Product Manager (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSomeone who has decent knowledge and understanding of the fields the company operates in can do very well. The is opportunity for growth and promotion if you are willing to Putin the time and effort. There are certainly pockets of excellence, and the culture is shifting more that way.

ConsStill a lot of "institutionalized" people around the company. Hear the phrase, this is how we have always done it way too much. Company wants to change, but there is a lot of resistance to it from long time employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementClear out the old. Take a fresh look at everything. If it is broke, fix it.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
