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

    Pros

    I was there for 8 years. Work/life balance was good under my manager. Overall I loved it there. Particularly the first 7 years were great. We were allowed to work from home, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was terrible when I temporarily worked with another group.
    Layoffs happened 2 weeks after major project was finished. It felt like I was worked to death in then discarded. The last year they cut back on things like working from home, number of paid holidays, etc. Layoffs happen every couple of years. Not much room for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great, and I wouldn't change a thing about that. But advice to the others I worked with would be to manage time better and not put things off to the last minute that forces people to work 60+ hour weeks. That could have been avoided with better planning.

    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
