    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Some high quality staff
    Global Footprint
    Solid Content

    Cons

    Management have no idea how to run a global company, there is no vision and certainly no charisma
    Most senior managers have never worked in financial markets, nor do they understand the value of people who have. Instead they'd rather a constant stream of failed management consultants - and when they arrive what's the first thing they do - bring in a consultancy...
    Yearly (or half-yearly) staff cull
    Yearly travel ban you could set your watch by
    Negative selection - every year more of the good people leave
    Living on former glories - no reinvestment, little dynanism, innovation is starved by lack of capex
    The Account Management function is barely functional, certainly no ability to articulate their range of products to a tier 1 financial services firm
    No culture of service or interest in customer satisfaction - if you're looking for that you need to go to the competition

    Advice to Management

    Enough of the re-orgs!
    Become an execution focused company
    Why on earth don't you have a COO???
    Stop posturing about service, if you really cared you would onshore it
    Create a news service that is actually capable of providing insight for the markets, just reporting the facts was good enough 15 years ago

    Pros

    Very global company, opportunity to learn a lot about doing business globally.

    Cons

    Complex, difficult to effect change, a lot of inertia.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to be sharp, clear, and aligned on priorities.
