    Pros

    casual work environment. Work remotely

    Cons

    this place has been declining since they acquired Reuters in 2008. Every year I have seen huge layoffs. They are in the process of outsourcing almost 1000 globally IT people to IBM. Salary increases really suck, .25% (yes point .25!) one year then ZERO 0% ( NADA!) the next.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is non existent. Management has been outsourced to India. My Indian manager refuses to assist with any management issues, he probably only makes $10/hr.

    Pros

    Work/Life balance is great. Work for smaller teams for great hands-on experience.

    Cons

    Adapt to the ever changing environment or bust! Politics often shadow great talent pushing them to find new homes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start an anonymous management/supervisor evaluation program. You'll get rid of damaging personnel, promote and keep all the good personnel and increase your profit margin for sure!

    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in New York, NY
    Former Employee - Senior Business Analyst in New York, NY

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

    Pros

    Worked with some brilliant people from whom I learned valuable lessons. I was happy with my salary, benefits and bonuses. I was allowed flexibility when it came to working from home or being in the Times Square office. I was also expected to be very self-sufficient, have my own ideas about how to achieve results, and succeed at meeting business goals with minimal input from managers.

    Cons

    This is not a place for people who need to be told what to do, when to do it, and how to do it. I had five different managers in the five years I worked for Thomson Reuters, and all but one of them was too wrapped up in their own work load to even consistently have a regularly scheduled 1:1 with me once a week or even once a month. If you want your manager's feedback, you have to ask for it -- and don't waste their time when you do get to talk to them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your employees work very hard, long hours for you, in a company culture that often feels soulless and heartless. We all want to win, but not at the cost of our health, our sanity or our relationships with our family and friends. Instead of dismissing complainers as "too negative", try examining the situations and expectations that are inspiring the complaining in the first place.

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

    Pros

    Generally moving forward, but 2 steps forward then change of direction, and one step back.
    Some good people.

    Cons

    Currently Outsourcing, not good for morale, or the business
    Very Minnesota centric
    Keep laying people off, those left behind pick up the extra
    Recently lost a number of good people with lots of experience
    Project management, planning and strategy not highly considered...
    hence knee jerk reaction to things

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing things
    Put more thought into strategy
