    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - access to sophisticated technology/platforms such as eikon, datastream - pretty chilled environment, good work-life balance - management encourages interaction and feedback - opportunity to suggest improvements which will be considered and if possible implemented

    Cons

    - due to size sometimes impossible to get things done (a lot of red tape and bureaucracy) - possibility to develop yourself: they'll be happy for you to take on the extra work but don't expect a decent increase in compensation from it - in some instances lack of clear direction

    Advice to Management

    Keep the open culture as people will feel valued when they're providing feedback and suggestions and see that they get considered and implemented.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Strong involved leadership, not just rhetoric actually want to bring about positive change for the employee and the customer. Good facilities and future opportunities. You get back what you put in - work hard, succeed.

    Cons

    Steep learning curve, diverse offerings portfolio. Culture is difficult to navigate at first, very meeting centric organisation which can lead to time management issues for those less organised.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on what you will be good at and drop the things we are not so good at. Be great at fewer offerings.

    Pros

    Nice workplace, and decent pay. Pleasant people to be working around, and good experience to have on the CV.

    Cons

    Serious management issues. Company hires freelancers overwhelmingly, and laid all long term freelance staff suddenly two weeks before christmas, in order to avoid them being eligible for employment rights. Negotiation with clients was very poor, meaning that we often ended up working ludicrous hours to get six months of work done in two months.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more attention to employee morale, and less to profit margins and liability reduction. You're spending more on training than you're saving on benefits.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had an exciting position where my role was changing, there was a lot of opportunity to take on more exciting projects. Also I got to meet the CEO my second month there for an internal workplace seminar. So cool!

    Cons

    Difficult to get some of the higher level management to sign off on things. And had some issues with the IT guys for the online documents board.

    Advice to Management

    Keep better track of your new hires. I was a contractor in a constantly changing position and somehow got put with an intern for a day. Not the best idea!

    Pros

    Well branded name that apparently opens doors

    Cons

    Management short sighted and looking for short term gains encouraged by ridiculous internal bonus culture. Technically so backward it's almost funny and anyone "daring" to say it how it is, magically appears on the next redundancy list.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up ! Look at the rest of the world and your dying place in it.. Fire middle management fools and get your hands dirty !


  10. Fantastic culture! Great for starting or 'ending' your career...

    Pros

    People really make time for you- if they see you're young, eager and new to the business they really do give you the time of day to understand the business. Supportive and friendly culture- brilliant for starting your career fresh out of education

    Cons

    I think if you are beyond the new stages and looking to progress further and rise in seniority it can be difficult Pay is lower

    Advice to Management

    Increase the pay, implement strategies to drive internal growth
