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

Pros

Beautiful new 'state-of-the-art' facility in Bingham Farms, MI

Cons

Extreme favoritism, inept management, little career advancement opportunities, little to no on-boarding or new hire training, poor decision-making with respect to program implementation, too many meetings!!!

Advice to Management

Bingham Farms, MI - Retain and allow advancement opportunities for your skilled employees, vs. promoting the less competent and 'yes' people out of favoritism! Treat your employees with respect, and not as the 'underlings' who show up every day and work hard, only to be passed over when opportunities for advancement arise. Provide opportunities for training and growth to ALL employees, not just to a select few!

    Pros

    Great People, Great Scenery, Decent earning potential

    Cons

    Benefits downgrade each year, 0-1% Salary increase in record profit years. You are just a number and will fire you at the bat of an eye. The company openely expresses the need to change the current sales model since it is not working and claim they realize it is VERY difficult to make sales numbers, yet since April (6 months) they have fired 31 of 95 salespeople for this reason. That is 5 each month. Every 1st of the month the topic of conversation is who all got walked out today. I know 3 people that have been here for more than 3 years. I heard one sales person comment to an employee that moved to sales"why would you do that? That's the fastrack to the unemployment line".

    Advice to Management

    When people start in sales at Thomson Reuters they are basically told to understand( by colleagues) that this will likely be a temporary position (6-12months) and there is a good chance they will be let go for reasons outside of their control and to not stress and just work hard. This is also common knowledge in other sales companies as people leave here and get sales jobs elsewhere only to spread the truth about working here. Is this the culture you are promoting?

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

    Pros

    A (relatively) relaxed work environment, with access to a massive breadth of information from a range of industries and geographies, and reasonably little in the way of office politics.

    Cons

    Thomson Reuters claims to be 'one company' in all its internal missives but even now, years since the merger between Thomson and Reuters, this is mostly just lip service with various HR and internal IT departments finding new ways to rename the ex-Thomson and ex-Reuters offerings (e.g. Green Users and Orange Users).
