I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The people I directly work with are like family.

Cons

Almost 5 years in and no promotion, even though promises have been made over and over again. There is a lot of favortism. Only 1 raise in 5 years. Bonuses are a joke. Work on average 50-70 hours a week.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability, job security, and benefits. As a developer, I am sheltered from a lot of the political B.S. I don't have to travel, and had never had to go onsite.

    Cons

    Too many managers. Big company red tape. As a developer, I have little to no power / control over the work or the team. Management is quite mediocre. Facilities are slightly below average.

    Advice to Management

    Solicit feedback from all levels of the company. Do a better job of integrating people from various acquisitions into a cohesive unit.

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

    Pros

    -Fair pay provided you move around in the company to stay in touch with the market rates.
    -Many opportunities for career change and advancement if you are mobile.
    -Strong review process and management training.

    Cons

    -This company lay's off employees all the time and because they spread it out over the year no one realizes how many employees are actually let go.
    -The dirty little secret about this company is that they constantly reorganize the business and never give the last reorganization a chance to work. Some of the changes they make are similar to past reorganizations.
    -Their idea of a raise is 0-1% for the last several years, no matter how hard you worked. The whole time they report record profits.
    -It is all about the current year win and no one cares about the future unless you are not in management.

    Advice to Management

    The culture needs to change, this used to be an employer of choice and in the last 4-5 years it has become a horrible place for anyone to work.
