    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.

    Pros

    The company has great people and great potential. The working atmosphere and work life balance is good. Despite many mergers and changes in management the company maintains a good sense of self and history. Now a very diversified company across all divisions.

    Cons

    Within the Investment and Risk Division the lions share of focus and investment goes to only a few products while others with massive potential are left "keeping the lights on". Management structure changes fairly regularly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While the concept of a unified platform is definitely the right way to go they need to ensure that the constant management changes and reduction in cost does not erode products or content sets that are at the cornerstone of the financial services business. A company of this size needs depth and priority across the full portfolio. Not just on the desktop and real-time services. given the staff and expertise TR has market leading potential.

    Pros

    Professional large global company. Work environment is pleasant and accommodating. Employees have access to good social tools, technologies, etc.

    Good employee portal to get you organized with HR, Benefits, etc. Various employee activities such as yearly health screening, yearly holiday party, etc.

    Competitive vacation benefits (at least for those of us that has been here for many years).

    Cons

    Over the years benefits (401k, health care), etc. have been getting worse compared to the good old day. However, it is competitive with current market. Just nothing to talk about like it used to be.

  8. Thomson Reuters - Eagan Campus

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

    Pros

    They just built a health care center for employees and contractors. It's a lot more affordable than using our health insurance outside the company. Their cafeteria food is conveniently there, but not very good and expensive. Their work/lifebalance is very good though. Working from home is also an option for many people.

    Cons

    -Lots of meetings that could have been a quick email.
    -Too many layoffs of the actual works and not management.
    -They don't seem to promote.... ever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote your employees. Make them feel good, not bad about themselves.

    Pros

    Great life work balance. Flexible schedule as well as a pretty decent benefit package. Nice perks like the employee stock purchase program.

    Cons

    Raises do not always seem to be based on merit. I believe they should be. Reward those who work hard and not those who create more work for others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps a little more attention should be paid to who contributes and who really doesn't. Overall a great company though.
