    Flexible working including working from home and time off when needed
    Diverse workforce with excellent inclusive culture that fully respects difference and allows the whole person to turn up to work

    Cons

    Too much change with focus on bottom line and lost sight of its employees
    Struggling to work out what it does next now most of its stuff is available free on the internet
    Management heavy

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Big Brand, easily recognisable across the globe.

    Cons

    decisions take an age to be made, basic salary was well below market rate, pay rise was laughable, commission structure favoured steady eddies and punished good/high performance sales people. line manager did not understand the products. bully-boy attitude of sales manager, crass "banter" very prevalent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    require leaner management - lots of meetings about meetings (pointless waste of time and money)
    product I was working with requires greater sales involvement,
    business direction not really clear for the international market.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Most areas of the company value work/life balance and encourage flexible working, but this is at the discretion of the local management. The culture is generally good although tensions arise from different parts of the company working autonomously.

    Cons

    The company is in the middle of consolidating after a period of growing inefficiently. This means regular rounds of job cuts which inevitably happen before consolidation efforts have taken effect. This is affecting morale and you will find a good number of employees hanging out for a pay off. The shared I.T. group is increasingly moving towards being outsourced with a retained management team based in the U.S.

    Enjoyed working for a multinational, although the constant focus on cutting costs resulted in a negative office culture

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility (job hours, flex days), perks (holiday, pension etc.) seemed good, friendly team and consistent performance based pay rises and reviews.

    Cons

    Some senior management treated employees as collateral of globalisation rather than as people. Resulted in low morale among employee base.

    Pros

    The usual large company benefits with very good holidays if you are based in the UK. As Reuters they were certainly a company to work for, less so with Thomson Reuters.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the Markets division has fallen on hard times and is letting go of more staff that it is hiring so little chance of promotion. Management have no clue how to turn it around and seem resigned to a shrinking company.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has a culture that 'protects' its employees. Reasonable compensation. Nice offices. Nice people in office. Working with people from other cultures, remotely, worldwide. Adopting 'social' networking internally. Recognition of jobs well done via awards.

    Cons

    Little opportunity to learn new technical skills. Little insight by management into the quality of work, just the outcome. Offshoring. Strong focus on containing costs. A narrow focus on getting the job done without consideration to enabling people to get the job done. Silos of responsibility that depend but dont respond to each other.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your 'blue sky' vision is great, but has little connection with many employees.

    Pros

    Great flexible environment, great for female employees, decent benefits

    Cons

    Management are too busy covering their own and forget about front line staff. A real top down approach to management which is not the kind of company that suits my personality.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people more and innovate from the bottom, not from the top. More transparency is needed.
