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

    Pros

    Casual, blue jean dress code. Start out with three weeks vacation. Flexible work hours. Very bright and pleasant coworkers. Fun company holiday party.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management. No strategic vision. No training. Lots of finger-pointing. Very little documentation on the legacy platforms. Five total platforms, all in silos... If you have a Day 1 for an exchange, you have to change/update the code and regression test it in every platform. The testing tools are poor and you're given very little time to do your work. LONG HOURS. The brightest people usually get fed up and leave to go elsewhere... Most projects are death marches... We have a deadline, meet it -- even if you haven't been able to do your work because you're overworked, understaffed and guessing at the market logic behind the platform... because nothing is documented and you were never trained!

    Advice to Management

    Bring in the resources to develop REAL training programs for your staff, so that they understand all five platforms and the market logic present. Otherwise they will continue to make mistakes because they didn't know better. Add to your staff. STOP FINGER POINTING!

    Pros

    Flexible, work life balance is good,

    Cons

    lots of busy work
    no ability to be really great.....
    come to work sit and be inefficient but cheap and go home, remember not to say much, shut up and be nice even if its fake

    Advice to Management

    too much like a club, need to rotate them to and from different regions, countries whatever it takes to and train them to lead to greatness.
