    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Working in a news room is exciting. As an agency news producer, this job gave me a lot of hands on experience and put me in a position to cover breaking news, and make decisions about what to cover and how to cover it.

    Cons

    This company does not take good care of its employees. I worked here for 5 years, and never received a raise. Health and other benefits were minimal. I was sent into dangerous work without the proper training or equipment. A very testosterone-driven atmosphere with big egos

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give your employees an opportunity for a career. Take care of them and they will take care of you.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    The pros are work-life balance, the ability to be creative, ability to work from home (even contractors) and a great team environment.

    Cons

    The cons are some of the leadership has trouble leading. There are some people in higher level job positions (upper management) who flat out should not be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of the "all the upper management that have no employees to manage", the cost savings there alone is in the tens of millions annually.

    Good experience

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are generally opportunities to move around to various positions throughout the company to find a spot that you like.

    Cons

    Lots of reshuffling and reorganizations, the project timelines almost always outlast the people that have any stake in seeing a project completed

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Generally too many cooks, even in cases where people are motivated to helping the company succeed, every initiative is run through the mill until it looks like every other initiative

    I worked at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Flexibility, with option to WFH when needed. Good Work/Life balance as long as you do not abuse. Management seems to be interested in helping with your career goals

    Cons

    Too cliqueish. Make friends with the right people, your good. If not, you will struggle

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the people that are actually "hands on" with the systems and day-to-day activities when making decisions on implementing processes to really know the impact.

    Current Employee - Director in New York, NY

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Global business, international perspectives
    Part of company that still has some purpose beyond profit. Editorial operation and company's Foundation do a commandable job.
    Flexible working conditions for the most part, little micromanagement.
    Not exactly a fully product-driven organization yet, but products are improving and post-merger mess is behind. Customers still mostly respect the brand so there is hope.

    Cons

    Board seems to be mostly after shareholder cash return rather than investment.
    Non-business central groups (Technology, HR, etc) can be very bureaucratic and major a drag on the different business units.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop adding C-level execs, crowding at the top usually only leads to costly infighting.
    Diversity is something you'd rather see rather than talk about.
    Companies thrives on good products that clients love: make product excellence a priority.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    - Active support from management to diversify skill-set. No propensity towards pigeon-holing employees.
    - Concrete and timely communication about expectations.
    - Great exposure to various facets of the online advertising ecosystem.
    - Strong culture of knowledge-sharing

    Cons

    As a media publisher, Reuters has the same struggles as those of other online publishers - wherein advertising budgets are moving away from "guaranteed" buys. This makes it infinitely harder to predict revenue streams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on standard processes globally and communicating all elements of revenue to the new employees.
