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 3 years)

    Pros

    Smart people, great working hours (9-530), and good work/life balance. Large international exposure with various groups spread out globally, London, SF, Bangalore, India, etc. Great exposure to top tier clients at all levels. Very accommodating for maternity/paternity leave.

    Cons

    Post merger- lots of dinosaurs at middle management level, no clear vision for the company. Board of Directors and Senior Management is oblivious to the low morale of lower level employees. Frequent reorganizations at the company level for senior management, lots of uncertainty of the future for all.

    Advice to Management

    Sell off non-essential assets, develop real company infrastructure (IT, HR etc)

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    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
