    The layoff package is big enough for an apartment down payment in London.

    I don't like the politics in the company.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Lots of upward mobility in company, nice benefits, salary
    You get a Turkey at Thanksgiving, fruit every tuesday and a picnic every summer.

    Cons

    Not much feedback on your performance, parking sucks, lots of corporate strategy.
    Too much is focused on work, not enough on personal lives. More strategies for bringing everyone together.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get Customer Support Back, stop acquisitions, and increase feedback.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    No overtime is expected, and the environment is really low stress. Great opportunity to learn, sharing knowledge and contributing to your team is emphasized. Management is fairly laid back and expectations are very clear.

    Cons

    Specific to this job role, you have the cons you get in any job focused on customer service (you may have to deal with some stressed out unreasonable people). Everything is based on seniority so you may have to work an unusual schedule when you first start.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Core hours of 9-3, easy to work around life schedule
    -Good introduction to Agile, TFS, TDD
    -Understanding managers

    Cons

    -Customers wanted quick, cheap results that ended up spawning time consuming + expensive bugs
    -Small raises, delayed so it wouldn't have to pay out several months' worth of higher salary
    -Mediocre benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Speak up when you know something is wrong. If it's obvious that there's going to be a problem down the line (where you know we're going to have to completely refactor/rewrite chunks of code), find another solution

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    Encourages diversity, good pay, great offices, office culture is the best in all the places I've worked. The company cares about work/life balance, HR seems to know what they are doing.

    Cons

    There is not a lot of advancement, I started in an entry level position and it takes a few years to be considered for promotion. There is not a lot of places to climb up the ladder. Granted, the company encourages you to flow in other business units.

    Pros

    Thomson Reuters is once again preparing to outsource the majority of their IT Services.

    Cons

    Seems no lessons were learned from the failed Fujitsu Project Ivory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reconsider your outsourcing activities. It's going to cost you more than you think. Learn the lesson from Project Ivory. This time the talent will leave and not be there to come back pick up the pieces.
