    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great company with endless opportunity.

    Cons

    It is a very large company, so you can't expect things to be the same as a company that may have only 50 employees.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary is decent and so are benefits. You get to travel with the company to exciting destinations for conferences.

    Cons

    It's very political. Management has favorites and it's all about who likes you. I was a top performing rep but the managers didn't like me. Coworkers were openly rude to me, and management just laughed it off. Then when a coworker falsely blamed me for something I didn't do, the same manager reported it to HR and gave me a warning in spite of all the good work I did. I was constantly put down, ridiculed, and made to feel like I didn't belong. I was great at doing the work, but the culture was beyond toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to manage. Values trickle from top down.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    All the team members and supervisors I've been working with were so professional with highly executive forces.

    Cons

    I do hope I could spend more time in the organization and get opportunities to work with the marketing department, which will make my tasks more aligned with the CS group.

    The company provides a good work life balance. It is a good place to work with a lot of open communication and very good culture.

    The constant re-orgs and simplifications can be stressful. They can lead to a lot of uncertainty. They are still getting their act together.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Access to some of the finest minds in the financial services space. A company with a deep caring for their customers, and a desire to change the world through the provision of intelligent information, software and services.

    Cons

    There has been some stagnation in certain businesses, due to talent drain and the inability to stick to a strategy and execute.

    Advice to Management

    Take a long, hard look at the last 5 years and realize that things won't get any better unless there is decisive execution on a strategy. The reorgs are just moving the spaghetti around the plate, and in the meantime, you are losing top talent.

    Pros

    I worked at Thomson Reuters Life Sciences until 2015, innovative company.

    Cons

    Reorganizations didn't help, and selling the IP&S business made it impossible to stay

    Advice to Management

    Retain top talent, and weed out the bad - but that's advice for anyone, anywhere
