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 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

    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.
