    Great company to work for. They really promote a healthy work life balance. Some companies claim to advocate this culture, but Thomson Reuters does it well.

    Cons

    Pros

    Plenty of bright colleagues and some opportunities to work on interesting projects with people from all over the world. A list customers. Strong brand recognition especially in the Financial and Legal worlds.

    Cons

    Lots of know-nothing executives in lots of meetings talking about strategy and cost cutting. Not sure they really want anything to change or to try anything new even if the customers are demanding it.

    Advice to Management

    If you say innovation, you should actually mean it and let smart people get real work done. You can just stay out of their way and still get most of the credit.

    Pros

    Thomson Reuters will open many different doors for those who join the company. You will have the opportunity to take your career in many different directions.

    Cons

    As with many larger organizations, the company can be overly burdened by process at times, with customer relations and employee morale suffering as a result.

    Advice to Management

    Don't get some caught up in process improvement that the qualities which made this company grow from its days as West Publishing get lost in the shuffle.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Back in the 1990's and early 2000's then Reuters used to be a great place to work, that's not the case now (see cons), although I'll agree that there was plenty of fat. You can get to work on some market leading products. For me I get to telecommute a lot. Most offices are physically nice places to be. I get paid pretty well, for most I think that the pay a average or a little better than average.

    Cons

    About 2004 major cost cutting started with a program called "fast forward", since then much of the pressure to increase returns for investors has been met by cost cutting rather than revenue growth. It is typical to get emails from the CEO that say words to the effect "well done we have grown revenues by 2%, ..... bla bla bla. We are going to cut XYZ". For the past 3 years I've seen cuts about every 6 months. Over the past 10 years it is hard to remember a year in which there were no cutbacks. In 10 years the IT department started off in-house then it was outsourced to IBM, then Fujitsi, then brought in house, now being outsourced again. There are the typical/stupid frustrations of we have budget for X but not for Y. For example no budget to buy descent computers for developers, rather than spend $1000 to upgrade a computer, they will pay someone much more to sit around and do nothing because they are waiting for their under powered out-dated computer. A lot of big company policies. You can choose any two from these, cheap, quick, quality. Cheap and quick is the priority now, quality used to be the priority, but that's no longer the case. Get the software out there and worry about it later appears to be the management motto now. There seems to be a belief that you can swap any team out, so a team that knows a product inside out can all be let got and the product handed over to a team that knows nothing about it; people and teams are not plug-and-play like that. Often a conservative approach to doing things, this does not mean quality it means unnecessarily sticking with old technology, this can be to the point where they are using hardware and software that is a decade beyond it's official end of life, indeed some hardware would more suited to a museum.

    Advice to Management

    Value product knowledge of staff. Understand that when people with knowledge experience and skill are swapped out the product suffers. You may muddle by but you will never know how much better you could have done. Then you wonder why so many projects are late or fail!
