    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    Global organization with a sound purpose.

    Cons

    Company is run by corporate employees versus giving business leaders authority and autonomy. Very slow old fashioned and bureaucratic. Not progressive and very tight cost controls that is not competitive to market. Does not create an employer of choice for innovation or creative types, very old school.

    Advice to Management

    Less bureaucratic, less corporate decisions and more local culture. Too sterile and vanilla trying to make the company be one style/way. Lacks diversity and openness to progressive views. Provide better rewards for high performers (equity etc) not just most senior levels. Empower employees more.

    Pros

    Some departments like R&D are innovative, give you a chance to do interesting work and work with talented professionals. Exposure to financial markets, news, legal, etc. Working for a big company has its perks.

    Cons

    Salaries are not that high as well as bonuses. In some departments, old technologies are used, people do not learn anything new.

    Advice to Management

    Employ more creative people, listen to ideas from lower-level employees.

    Pros

    Some nice people and some parts of company seem ok. If not micromanaged, work can be interesting.

    Cons

    High turnover and layoff rates. My experience as a working parent was horrible. The pay is low, the insurance and other benefits stingy. Although the company requires employees to be flexible for 24/7 staffing, there is no reciprocal flexibility, if for example, your child gets sick. I routinely worked 6 or 7 days a week, but, when I needed to leave an hour early for a doctor's appt., my manager threatened disciplinary action. Mgt refuses to pay non-exempt employees OT. The HR people are not helpful and the payroll service is severely flawed. Managers seem to receive little oversight and feel free to bully staff. Dept mgrs acted like a high school clique. It was embarrassing to watch.

    Advice to Management

    If you eliminated HR and line managers, it could only improve the company. Your employees would like to do their jobs.

    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.
