    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people are the best part of Thomson Reuters. The global nature of the company exposes you to a wide variety of great people to work with.

    Cons

    There are a lot, I'll focus on the worst. The company acquires too many other companies, then never properly integrates them. This leads to a lot of silos within the company that speak different languages and don't know how to cooperate with each other.
    Management sets decent strategies, but has no patience to put in the effort to measure their success or go into the details of execution. This leads to people pulling in different directions.
    This might not be the case in all verticals of the company, but in mine, brown-nosing and bragging was the only way to get ahead. Management didn't know how to measure employee effectiveness.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the troops in the field. A lot of decisions are made without asking the people who actually work on the products that are being affected.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Employees don't have to work hard because managers have no clue what their direct reports are doing.

    Cons

    Company cannot compete with Bloomberg due to incompetent management, causing continual loss of revenue, ongoing staff reductions, and no company morale.

    Advice to Management

    Identify all middle and senior managers who were responsible for Xtra not being competitive, and who were permitted to make the same mistakes with Eikon. Once identified, fire them summarily because they are the cancer that is killing the company.
