    Pros

    Company treats their employees well and offers a flexible and stable corporate environment, all in the comfort of the suburbs.

    Cons

    Old-school, very slow to change and not a very innovative culture. In the midst of off-shoring many in-house resources and other cost-cutting measures

    Advice to Management

    Pay for performance and invest in technology

    Pros

    Global company with a truly dynamic set of businesses. Tremendous opportunities in technology and legal. Acquisition intensive business model means there is never a dull moment!

    Cons

    Pay and benefits way below average.

    Advice to Management

    Try stabilizing the organization (less acquisition) to re-invent the culture.

    Pros

    Working from home was really great when you need to go to the run errands midday. If you have a supportive and knowledgable manager then it's great place to work.

    Cons

    I started at Thomson Legal before the merger with Reuters and benefits were great and you received annual increases more than 1%. After the merger everything went to the pits. Constant restructuring, layoffs, and general confusion about who worked with what product made it hard to do your job. Management never gave all information about the market when a new product was being launched, this made selling very hard, as you would visit customers and find out there were 30 other products on the market that did it better than your new product. There is an amazing lack of diversity in Legal, from Eagan to the field. Very few sales reps of color and not a lot of options for advancement. The health insurance is awful compared to other companies. If you are a field-based employee then you don't have a lot of options for advancement. It's really depressing when HR tells you that they are aware that management is a problem and they can't do anything.

    Advice to Management

    People don't trust HR. Managers get away with a lot of highly unethical things. Managers are transferred when they should be fired. Hire people of color...diversity is good. The constant layoffs, low raises, and slow product updates are hurting employees morale. The super high prices are also affecting your reputation in the market - you can't say we charge more because we're TR. Not everyone can afford to pay for travel and get reimbursed several weeks later.

    Pros

    - Broadly, nice people - Company had a lot of valuable assets - Relatively stable environment - Good work/life balance

    Cons

    - Not the most driven organization - Disarray at executive management levels impeding growth potential - Inefficient organization - Don't get it the way that main competitors Factset and Bloomberg do - Poor reputation with other top tier employers (reduced likelihood of being hired) - Below average compensation and benefits including healthcare

    Advice to Management

    You're going to have to be more ambitious about taking market share, stop fighting with each other and stop cuttings costs when the competition is out-spending you (to good effect)
