    Former Employee - Inside Sales in Ann Arbor, MI

    I worked at Thomson Reuters (Tax & Accounting) as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Very good training-each intern is provided with two mentors: a recent hire and a veteran, to help ease the transition. Summer project of selling training on the products is very relevant to the bottom line. The boss was very understanding and friendly, yet drew the line when she had to, and found different ways to encourage the employees, whether it was through pitting them against each other through competition, or having one-on-ones with every intern to discuss different ways to succeed in the workplace

    Cons

    Pay could have been a little higher, especially with the relevance of the work we were doing. Also, would have LOVED at least a barebones commission rate, especially for cold calls which turned into deals-it would have drove up quality and productivity of the prospecting, which was the proverbial "paper-shredding" or "donut fetching" portion of the internship.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Everything was great except for the cons listed above. The intern "mother" was fantastic, time-off policies were reasonable, there was room for growth, and ample support from the rest of the firm. Structure is fantastic and well-thought. They also make it very clear there is opportunity for a full-time hire, which is a good thought to keep in mind as an intern.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters (Tax & Accounting) full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, great people, great opportunities in a business that is rapidly growing. TRTA is the number one player in its market space on a global basis. The company heavily invest in R&D, acquisitions and global expansion. This is a great place to build strong high-value skills.

    Cons

    In general senior management is very good. However there are a few individuals who are terrible but remain at the company despite numerous complaints. The compensation in general is low. And on a regional basis extremely low.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Adjust compensation by market or region to remain competitive in local area markets. Pay more attention to the workforce when critiquing senior management.

    A great entry level position.

    Cons

    Business Technology Intern high learning curve, three weeks of in class training

    Current Employee - Business Technology Intern in Ann Arbor, MI

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters (Tax & Accounting) as an intern

    Pros

    All the employees are friendly people.

    Cons

    Learning curve is a little steep. This job should be titled call center job because that is what it is. Spend the whole day answering phones regarding Thomson Reuters products. Pay is horrible for a company the size of Thomson Reuters.
    Pays Less, Pays Less, Pays Less!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    pay your interns at least $15 plus the monthly housing allowance you give them without them having to meet the 40 hours weekly benchmark that you have set.

    Pros

    Gained lots and lots of experience and knowledge in this position. Management is great want to see you succeed and have a very hands on approach. Easy to move up if you rub shoulders with the right people.

    Cons

    Moving up based on who you know rather than what you know. Favoritism can be shown to certain reps. Work lots of hours during tax season. Ten hour shifts, 30 minute lunches and weekend hours.

    Pros

    Constantly surrounded by humble, intellectual and stimulating people. Great opportunities to network!

    Cons

    Pay was definitely not sufficient, I was lucky to have minimal expenses but my fellow interns who had long commute hours could not say the same. The kind of internship where if you sit around not looking for work you will have nothing to do, very DIY. Offered to bring me back PT but were very ambiguous regarding FT offers and told me to seek out a position of interest within the company and they would reference me.
