    Pros

    Thomson Reuters is a great place to work, has good benefits, great colleagues, and provides people with a career path to help them progress.

    I really don't have anything negative to say about the company on here. As I stated as a pro, this is a great company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. Get to know your employees and help them realize what they should be doing to progress their careers.

    Pros

    Great colleagues and willingness to collaborate from the global teams

    Cons

    Egos get in the way of development which then slows down collaboration; also inefficient use of time; managers and higher ups not helpful in the process; fear of outsourcing developer jobs prevents some from sharing responsibilities with global teams

    Advice to Management

    Promote and give recognition to people that are doing all the work; nothing decreases morale more than seeing someone move up that is egotistical and self serving

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

    Pros

    Very secure position - all people I work with here have at least 8 years of experience here. Many have been here over 30. They do support your growth, they're covering my expenses to go through Villanova's Lean Six Sigma certification course. Benefits and days off are great.

    Cons

    Creativity is stifled here, it's such a corporate culture. With recent budget cuts and incentives to show growth there has been a lot of recent M&A activity which has negatively affected the business. Fewer people are accountable for their work as they can blame the teams overseas. Lot of back biting and people in general seem to watch out for themselves competitively instead of being truly collaborative.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the floor, lower and mid management more. There is a growing incentive for people to make numbers speak to what their superiors want to see, people are beginning to just go through the motions to keep seniors happy as if it's all business as usual. There are serious growing pains.

    Pros

    Good working atmosphere/intelligent co-workers, fair salary.

    Cons

    Projects are loaded on workers. This results in poor quality. Make one mistake and its on your review.They will tell you this is not true but it is.

    Advice to Management

    Thomson needs to learn from their competitors. Thompson cares about squeezing the life blood from their people. Period.
