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

Pros

Pay is reasonable. Working environment seems flexible and relaxed. Thomson Reuters has lots of data, so it will still be a stable company in the near future.

Cons

Management has no clue who have the expertise to get things done effectively and with best result for their customers. Based on my experience, the collaboration between product managers and software developers is not good -- they don't want input from each other. If you are a competent software engineer good at what you do, look elsewhere first.

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

    Pros

    The product was amazing and so were the clients. We were smart, profitable and innovative.

    Cons

    Management in NY pretending to understand our business. Poor decision making, infighting, jockeying for position. The parent company was losing money with the smaller businesses/people as their workhorse. The New York team imparted fear and condescension. Morale getting lower and lower. They had a massive layoff in January because the parent invested in a failed product. They never learned who they were laying off, many were super stars. Constant hiring freezes and our group not allowed to travel, while mgmt. of the flew everywhere to golf.

    Advice to Management

    Learn who your valuable players are and keep them.
    Visit people in your different business units and listen to them.
    Probably too late unfortunately.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    I can't think of one

    Cons

    In the middle of nowhere, permafrost at management level, just went business casual, not allowed to work from home, zero flexibility, they do not encourage thing - just obeying, no raise in two years.feels like a company out of the 40s.

    Advice to Management

    Innovate and get current
