    I worked at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Supportive culture and good leadership. We have offices around the globe that we can reach out for additional resources.

    Cons

    Sometimes it could be difficult to arrange a meeting as team members were located at different continents. However everyone would try his/her to be present.

    Pros

    Good atmosphere.

    So months you have to put in more hours, but many you can get away with less than 40. But when you do have to work more, make sure you are ready, as it is expected that you put in whatever it takes. But overall I would say you average only a normal amount of hours, which is nice.

    Cons

    Management mostly comes from the tax & accounting world, which fan be very frustrating for the development team. Also, every project is TOP priority, which makes meeting deadlines impossible as some points, and sets teams up for failures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire managers from your development team.

    Pros

    Good work environment. Good benefits. Ability to work from home if needed. Lots of nice amenities and discounts for others.

    Cons

    Small annual raises. No purpose for doing self assessment as management already has you on a bell curve for annual reviews.

    Pros

    - Lots of Resources

    Cons

    - Too many processes for everything
    - Constantly changing structure and roles
    - Deal with many "faceless" departments

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Change is understandable but too much change makes it hard to understand ones role and the roles of the people you are working with. This leads to lost opportunities and a gap in knowledge that can lose the company revenue.
