    Pros

    Good platform, international exposure, good pay relative to rest of media

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management, some terrible editors, big talent drain. Top editors seem to change their strategy every few months about what they're looking for from reporters. They really focused on big enterprise stories last year and now there is no emphasis on that at all. Employee morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing your strategy. Lack of consistency and focus makes employees feel like there is no leadership at the top.

    Pros

    Solid company to work for. They really care for their employees. I feel like a valued member of the team when contributing.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a grind. Can feel like the same old thing day after day. Management could use a little help with how they manage senior reps. Little bit to hands on at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out. Leave senior reps alone. Raise the base salary substantially if you don't want people to leave after a few years of success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should not have outsourced the in house officers for a cheaper contract company. Should have managed the financial aspects of the department to ensure the company didn't outsource the job.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    For an eager person there are many areas of the business that can provide opportunities for growth. They employ some of the brightest and best talent in the financial data sector. There is always projects and program ongoing within the company that are looking at new technologies and ways of doing business.

    Cons

    Because of the size of the company it can sometimes take longer to bring changes to existing systems and new systems to market then is optimal.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider net worth of employees, knowledge and experience, not just the dollar value of their salary.
    Avoid over taxing resources by just adding to a person's workload. This leads to inefficiencies and burn-out of talent.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance, flexible schedule in within the global roles, decent benefits, big campus

    Cons

    very political, too much emphases on creating "beautiful" and "complex" presentations vs actually analyzing the information and moving forward with execution

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't let where you fall on the hierarchy determine those you'll "allow" yourself to spend time getting know, hear what the worker bees have to say and what they see needs to happen for success and weigh it against what upper management sees. There are more ways to look at things than just by what upper management sees.

    Pros

    Work life balance. Up to date technology use, innovative. More than average pay.

    Does not entirely empower the curious, nerdy software engineer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It not empowering the nerdy software engineer.. Empower the nerd.
