    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexible hours, great challenges, forward thinking leadership, fun team events year round, and great co-workers.

    Cons

    Terrible cafeteria, large unprotected parking lot, cheap computers for some that are under powered and outdated.

    Pros

    **Update 6mo in-- I am so happy to be with this company. I cannot say enough positive things. A truly powerful, brilliant organization that believes in its people. My department is great. I have fantastic leadership that I'm very lucky to report to/learn from.** CULTURE. Took me at least two months to realize it wasn't just an illusion. Competitive pay and benefits. Lots of online training available. TR's HUB is great - essentially, an internal Google/social media site. Great deal of transparency, considering how large the company is.

    Cons

    **Update 6mo in-- it's a siloed organization, but they've acknowledged it and are actively trying to correct it. The politics are difficult to understand at times. Collaboration is lacking some. All said, I think many of these frustrations stem from adjustment and not the organization itself.** Training is lacking (in my department, at least). I've been set off with my own devices since starting because everyone is very busy. It's nice that I'm trusted (goes back to culture), but I'd appreciate more focus on development.

    Advice to Management

    Keep moving forward with the enterprise initiative. You talk about the 2025 customer challenge, and I think the enterprise concept is a part of that. Millennials want speed, efficiency, to be able to grasp knowledge from across organizations. Keep going! Consider bringing us into the conversation. There is so much opportunity to share knowledge

    Pros

    People really want to work together here. There is a sense of "work hard" and we'll have fun doing it.

    Cons

    The company is sometimes slow to make decisions. This can make things feel repetitive and there isn't a clear vision of where things are going.

    Advice to Management

    You have to sometimes invest big to see the big payoff later on. That goes for talent and for products.
