I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Excellent compensation plan (for many there) base and incentives generous pay for performance
Good top leaderships, Some middle managers are weak

Cons

Some middle managers are weak so you need to be lucky about whom you report to sometimes. They are always selling divisions and companies there. Beware if yours is sold.

Advice to Management

Think about keeping the good companies rather than selling them

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Flexible partial work-from-home policy (manager/department dependent)
    - International company with coworkers around the world
    - Possible travel opportunities to other company offices
    - Recognized brand
    - Some flexibility in work/life balance, good work hours
    - Higher than average vacation time, especially after a couple years. 5 weeks not unlikely after several years.

    Cons

    - Poor salary and compensation, HR is an enemy that seeks to minimize pay even if manager argues in your favor. Excuses for sub-inflation based raises, even after great year.
    - Huge corporate bureaucracy
    - Very little room for advancement/growth, no merit based recognition
    - Plenty of incompetent coworkers who's only strength is having been there 10 years
    - Reliance on poor technology infrastructure and support of legacy platforms
    - Heavy offshoring in recent years, frequently with attitude that "10 mediocre/poor offshore resources are still cheaper than 2 stellar local resources".
