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

Pros

It is generally a comfortable environment to work in. Once you're in, you are pretty secure. If you work with the right people, it can be very rewarding.

Cons

Though some of the people in the company are very smart, generally they are looking for mediocrity. Management is only comfortable with with very small changes. Don't expect management to reward you for going above and beyond.

Advice to Management

Give your employees more opportunity for growth. Too often, I've seen the wrong people promoted for the wrong reasons. Many are promoted out of convenience. Recently, it seems employees need to apply for the position they deserve to be handed.

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

    Pros

    -Core hours of 9-3, easy to work around life schedule
    -Good introduction to Agile, TFS, TDD
    -Understanding managers

    Cons

    -Customers wanted quick, cheap results that ended up spawning time consuming + expensive bugs
    -Small raises, delayed so it wouldn't have to pay out several months' worth of higher salary
    -Mediocre benefits

    Advice to Management

    -Speak up when you know something is wrong. If it's obvious that there's going to be a problem down the line (where you know we're going to have to completely refactor/rewrite chunks of code), find another solution
