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

    Pros

    Decent benefits and pay for the position. You get pretty good vacation too. Casual dress code is also nice. The organization is huge and there is room for moving around but you need to put in your 2-3 years in product support.

    Cons

    The job itself is very tedious. You sit in a cube and answer the phone like a robot. It's one after another, after another, after another.. constantly. Except for lunch and additional break which is 30 minutes. Other than that, you're on the phone all day. During tax season the hours are very hectic, expect 11 hour days plus most weekends. Management has no idea how stressful the job is as they leave right at 5/530 every day. There is also a major lack of team work.. It's funny they put you on teams and try to build the atmosphere, yet, all you do is sit in your cube and answer phones by yourself. People hear barely say hi to each other, its a job where you show up and do you work then go home.

    Advice to Management

    Give employees responsibilities other than answering the phone and actually listen to what employees have to say.

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

    Pros

    Good benefits and lot of different opportunities, both at headquarters and in other locations. Generally nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Getting promoted from within tends to be more about who you know then what you know. People move around alot and tend either to be on a fasttrack or no track at all. The fast track only rarely lines up with a high level of competence.

    Advice to Management

    Look outside the box for your next hire, not just someone who thinks like you do.
