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

Pros

The people are really terrific. A lot of very sharp people in technology. Generally, I see a can-do attitude everywhere which is pretty amazing given how the last couple of years have been. People genuinely seem to want to help you succeed, and at least from a technology standpoint, the company seems to be moving in the right direction to get its costs in order.

Cons

The dreaded "Minnesota-nice" is a horrible feature of this company where people smile, agree with you, and then completely go back to doing things the old way. Too many businesses are relying on legacy to stay alive rather than engaging in a forward-looking strategy and business plan. Too many sacred cows. Morale isn't great given the poor to non-existent salary increases that have been the norm for way too long. There is still also a Thomson versus Reuters mentality around the company and too many different tribes.

Advice to Management

Be bold. Kill off low performing businesses and reinvest in the future. Go private. There is no value in you being a publicly traded company when the majority ownership is still with the Thomson family.

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

    Pros

    Good company to work for with great values & benefits.

    Cons

    The company has become bigger after they merged with Reuters and is loosing a lot of money trying to straighten up the Reuters side of the business. I think we would have been better off without the merger. Currently the Technology MIS group leadership is in a mess. They do not know what they are doing and have no long term vision.

    Advice to Management

    Sell Reuters and go back to the old Thomson Model, where we made a good return on our investments
