Good Company to work for!

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

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

ProsA lot of room for movement, both laterally and upward. Great work-life balance. Great culture and atmosphere. Things are constantly changing- which can make things a challenge!

ConsThings are so complex that there are so many approval chains for every last thing you are doing. The company could definitely simplify the way they do things if they tried.

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.

Great workplace environment, struggling company

Financial and Risk Intern (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Thomson Reuters as an intern for more than a year

ProsThe workplace environment is excellent, most people there are a pleasure to work with and are tremendously qualified individuals.
They are going through a transformation period, product quality is improving and the company is focusing on cutting costs to become more efficient. There is great potential for the future of Thomson Reuters.

ConsIt feels like they're still trying to play catch-up since the Thomson-Reuters merger. In recent years the company has been struggling to gain an advantage over Bloomberg in the market and have faced headwinds from a struggling financial sector.
The size of the company can make certain things difficult to accomplish or push through.
