    I have been working at Thomson Reuters

    Pros

    Good platform, international exposure, good pay relative to rest of media

    Cons

    Dysfunctional management, some terrible editors, big talent drain. Top editors seem to change their strategy every few months about what they're looking for from reporters. They really focused on big enterprise stories last year and now there is no emphasis on that at all. Employee morale is low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop changing your strategy. Lack of consistency and focus makes employees feel like there is no leadership at the top.

    Pros

    Very financially savvy company with many mentorship programs for young employees.

    Cons

    Company is so large that it's easy to get lost if you don't get to know management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do everything you can to keep the number of employees low, meeting to a minimum and opportunities for younger staff available.

    Pros

    Solid company to work for. They really care for their employees. I feel like a valued member of the team when contributing.

    Cons

    Somewhat of a grind. Can feel like the same old thing day after day. Management could use a little help with how they manage senior reps. Little bit to hands on at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Chill out. Leave senior reps alone. Raise the base salary substantially if you don't want people to leave after a few years of success.
