    Pros

    Flexible schedule, brand awareness, and sales culture.

    Cons

    Flat organization with too many directors/senior directors, marketing takes precedent over sales, and management is constantly changing territories/lowering comp plan. Sales reps at times are treated like the company's step children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow sales reps ability to invoke/suggest change in process changes.

    Pros

    Great for an entry level position. Feet to the fire but the structure allows for moderate success at the minimum. Access to other departments.

    Cons

    Upside for over achievers year over year decreases unless promoted which can be difficult as promotions are based on tenure.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put yourself in your employees shoes. Most want to move up. Set expectations.

    Pros

    Not many anymore. There are still some good people trying their best to stop the executives from ruining the Legal, Tax and Science businesses.

    Cons

    The current executive leadership has no long term vision for the company. The whole culture now is about cost cutting to try to prop up the stock price in the short term. They are laying off good people and replacing them with 3rd party resources that don't have TR's best interests at heart. They aren't willing to spend any meaningful investments into building out the infrastructure of the business anymore. The only projects that ever get implemented are very small short term projects. Anything of substance that will position the company to be more agile in the future is deemed to expensive. Thus in 5 years the business will not be able to adapt to the ever changing environment and TR will be left in the dust by a company that is able to provide the customers what they want, when they want it at a price that TR will not be able to come close to.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop focusing so much on cost savings at the expense of the future agility of the company.

    Pros

    In the Thomson Reuters Science business you will be working with very smart, driven people and interesting products. The benefits are excellent as well as the educational opportunities. A good place to be if you are a top performer, like to be challenged and are successful at navigating politics.

    Cons

    A high pressure environment with a fair amount of upheaval and uncertainty, and some challenges in leadership.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider balancing compensation more with the level of and additional responsibilities being given to your team. Provide training and/or more guidance when employees are tasked with responsibilities they have no previous experience with.

    Pros

    Telecommuting encouraged, decent learning opportunities, great parental benefits. Decent retirement package options. HR service center has been helpful whenever questions arise. Lots of volunteering options included 2 days paid volunteering time.

    Cons

    Mediocre merit increases and horrible promotional increases. Health insurance packages not stellar but that seems to be the norm. Reorganizations seem to happen every 9 months leading to huge inefficiencies as everyone is continually readjusting to new conditions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Separate merit/bonus/promotion pools so promotions are handled separately. Be more competitive on salary at the local level. Stop reorganizing so much.
