    Pros

    Non-aggressive environment. People generally want to do the right thing

    Cons

    Big cost squeeze - gets depressing after a while. Lots of 'jam tomorrow'

    Advice to Management

    We're tired of the 'thank you for letting us have a job' dance

    Pros

    Working with Thomson Reuters has been the most positive experience so far in my working career. Immediate management take a genuine interest in the progress of their employees. There is genuine career advancement. Training is available and recommended.

    Cons

    No downsides so far, though pay increases have not been particularly good over the years - but understandable with the way the economy went.

    Advice to Management

    Better pay increases please! Management makes an effort to keep good staff, and a little more renumeration would be really good.

    Pros

    Lots of opportunities, great broad experience. No limit to possiblities if you are prepared to work for them.
    Integrity.
    Very supportive.

    Cons

    Small pockets of favouritism (but no worse than anywhere else).
    Under performing individuals not dealt with quickly enough.

    Advice to Management

    Don't be afraid to make difficult decisions. Leaving under performing individuals unchecked demoralises the wider team.

    Pros

    The overall organisation policy's are good.

    Cons

    Units with new management structure (recruited externally) work in silos and create their own policy's, process and procedures.

    Advice to Management

    Don't try to re-invent the wheel and implement processes and procedures that go against how majority of the IT dept works globally. Creates too much pain and fail to deliver on projects because you will constantly be fighting the wrong battle!
