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

Pros

Thomson Reuters has some wonderful talent and offers very good benefits.

Cons

Pay is less than competitors. Opportunities are lacking. Company has been in a constant state of "restructuring". Strategic vision is often lost.

Advice to Management

Get rid of poor management and promote the talented folks that know your products and customers the best. Seems like the best talent either leaves for better rewards or get shoved out the door.

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

    Pros

    Lots of good people scattered around trying to do a good job themselves and help their coworkers to do so as well. Some very good products, and SOME very good management.

    Cons

    Management seems to have no clue what goes on in some parts of the company. Bad middle management happily undermines the company, slows down attempts to fix things and move forward. Good employees stuck under bad managers can't reach their potential and are often pushed out. And overall product strategy does not match what customers want. Customers feel nickeled and dimed to death - but in thousands of dollars rather then pennies. Also, pay can be quite poor and some people have to work obscenely long hours, while others get away with hardly any work at all.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to detect and clean out the incompetent, heel dragging middle management. Employees who get stuck with bad managers have no one to turn to; that needs to change.

    Pros

    - Generally friendly people.
    - Strong base salary.

    Cons

    - If you are good at your job, your manager will not let you grow or leave your position.
    - No opportunity to move up unless you have personal ties with senior management.
    - No raise or bonus -- even with outstanding peer reviews and recommendations -- and increased responsibilities.
    - Expected of you to work 10+ hours a day / out of business hours.
    - No appreciation or value for employees- if you don't bring in $$ (even if not part of sales), you are just a number and there is no "business case" to keep you, give you a raise/bonus, or meet your career aspirations.

    Advice to Management

    There has been a lot of attrition from global directors, regional senior management, to all the way down to entry level admins. These are talented individuals that have left the company because their
