I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great company with excellent benefits compared to most american companies.
Good opportunities to find other positions globally.
Development organization is trying to become agile.

Cons

The benefits used to be much better before the merger but that might be because of the times, things are pretty bad for the financial industry and it really hit TR's bottom line.
Depending on what area one works in, recent dramatic changes in management meant layoffs mostly for people with seniority and an opinion. New managers changed processes completely and hired mostly college students to cut cost... but I guess it will save the company money, in the near term.
Used to be able to work from home some days but that has been completely eliminated. Now everyone has to be in the office even if you have late night calls with your team in Asia. I thought companies in general are leaning more and more towards dispersed teams that telecommute, but no longer at TR... dispersed maybe, but you still have to waste highly valuable real estate in Times Square and be there every day.

Advice to Management

You might want to consider flattening your corporate structure somewhat... 5+ layers of management can be quite counterproductive to getting things done.
Take a look down the management ladder and see if everyone is 'really' doing a good job.
