    Accelerating our path toward gender parity | Thomson Reuters

    In a note to staff on International Women's Day, Jim Smith, President and CEO, announced a commitment to increasing female representation in senior leadership roles. Women make up 43% of our employee population but only 30% of our senior leadership. I think we can do better.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Packed with intelligent, dedicated people, young and mature, new and established makes for encouraging, supportive work environment and teamwork.
    Clear goals and reasonable, regular performance assessments.
    Good benefits (gradually reducing under the ownership of the Thomson family)
    Some flexible working.
    Plenty of variety of jobs if you want to move around.

    Cons

    Random re-orgs and layoffs every year lead to a rather 'Russian roulette' atmosphere at times. In the 20+ years I was there we repeatedly abruptly lost some of our best people from our project teams due to this randomness.
    Favoritism and luck rather than talent-based advancement.
    Silo culture is rampant. In some offices people don't know who sits next to them if they are not in the same business unit/team.
    Vacation days reduced in last 10 years.
    Bureaucratic, slow moving, full of jargon

    Advice to Management

    Lay off people based on performance reviews instead of randomly. Even if these people were paid more (the suspected reason for their lay off) they were worth it!
    Do something drastic to break down the silos at the level of 'normal worker' so we can share our brilliance :) How about a widespread rotation of employees between business units?

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Chicago, IL).

    Interview

    The interview took around 6 months. I first had a video interview and heard back from them about 5 months later where they wanted me to come into their office the very next day. They said they would reimburse me. After emailing them multiple times, I still have not received my reimbursement
