    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexible work place with benefits such as working from home and flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Lots of lip service from upper management about how great a place it is to work, about how awesome our products are, how much we will train people. In the end we have mediocre products and training is non-existent. As an example there is a push coming this fall to retrain 10,000 managers on how to better manage there teams. Why is 20% of the workforce middle management? Most of those managers spend more time angling for a better job than actually empowering their folks to do their jobs.

    Oh, and the health benefits get worse and more expensive every year as HR and management try to spin how it's better for us.

    Advice to Management

    How about you get rid of some of that middle management who obviously can't do their job without retraining and use the budget to train your employees (who rarely get training)

    Stop buying companies and bloating up the company when you haven't even finished combining the Reuters and Thomson companies from years ago.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    good 401k matching and the on boarding & training process is great.

    Cons

    Health care, no room for advancement, despite growth they keep making budget and bonus cuts, "open door management" doesn't really mean anything and the fact you work in the middle of a cornfield with old dirty carpeted walls isn't the ideal work environment for most. The job is also very very very seasonal leaving January-April pretty miserable as you are virtually screamed at for calling during tax season and August-October are more deadlines so you are only left a few decent months to sell.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more competitively with the rest of the technology industry and invest more trust and responsibility into your employees. Also, upgrade the building or start a remote office near a more thriving area to keep quality talent longer.
