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

Pros

Big company with a lot of opportunity IF you get the right manager. Decent pay and benefits.

Cons

Management is absolutely awful. The complete lack of experience and professionalism makes life miserable. Work-from-home opportunity is simply a trap to overload employees with work (no choice but to bring it home and work 60 hours a week). Additionally this company is extremely cliquey. The culture reminds me a lot of high school.

Advice to Management

Seminars on improving managerial, communication, and professional courtesy skills would vastly improve working conditions for all.

    Pros

    Free lunches if working on the weekend, company events including food events and outings for the whole team, open lines of communication with the management team, and great opportunity for growth.

    Cons

    Overtime is mandatory during the busy season which is about half the year with the tax deadlines.


  2. "Good company, grown through acquisitions and a bit bloated."

    Pros

    Very flexible corporate environment. If you build the right relationships, execs will give you opportunities to try different things, regardless of your experience or qualifications. As long as you deliver, good place to learn multiple skills on someone else's dime. Nice culture.

    Cons

    Very corporate. Employees are ok but not the best of the best, mostly because they were hired through acquisitions of companies that didn't have the clout to attract "the best of the best". Strategy unclear. Want to be a fully integrated company but not willing to take a hit on margins to invest in organic growth and people (engineers, intrapreneurs, etc.) who can actually execute on this strategy, so they end up buying companies that are just ok, with just ok employees.

    Advice to Management

    Hire smarter and be clear about your strategy. If you don't have the human resources to pull it off and can't compromise margins to do this because of fear of the market (or family shareholders) then go private or change your strategy. Being a portfolio holding company worked for Thomson because there was clarity in the goal/vision. Nothing wrong with that, although executing on being one business is definitely more fun/challenging for the type of employees you should be bringing on.
