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

    Pros

    Its nice to work at home, and they have a good remote structure. Pay is average or above depending on what you got when you got hired. Benefits are good and good vacation program.

    Cons

    A little bit disorganized. Many many levels of management. Way to many systems tracking different things, and you spend half your day using them all and figuring out your login info. Disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    More transparency. More training for specific job. Get organized systems so we don't need to remember so many logins and different systems.

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

    Pros

    Some of the best reasons to work for TR Elite is that during the first 2 quarters of the year you can spend, spend, spend!

    Cons

    You can spend during the first 2 quarters of the year but during the last 2 quarters they cut, cut, cut spending and then they have layoffs.

    There is this one department in particular that has about 80 employees and they have an annual department excursion out of state! Yup, they pay, room, food and flight for EIGHTY employees. During this excursion, they act like they are at a college party! Booze, booze, booze! They learn nothing and when surveyed, they say the best part are the games and dinners!

    Advice to Management

    Watch spending! Instead of spending on R & D, departments at Elite are spending on R & R and not 1 thing that will better the company is learned! Shame on you Elite, the $$ spent on those FUN excursions could have gone to someone's salary and prevented someone from being laaid off!

    Benefits package is very good. Part of the larger Thomson Reuters business. Product line has a lot of potential. Generally modest work hours.

    Company has a history of a lot of management turn over. Consequently there are vacuums of leadership in many areas. Many projects lack authoritative accountabiity.

    Advice to Management

    Hire higher quality managers and developers.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been here a long time and have seen the company grow. There are some great people around from when the company was smaller. People are friendly and easygoing. There are exciting projects going on if you are in the right group. There is lots of change.

    Cons

    The parent company is getting too big. We've lost most of the little perks like parties, bonuses, etc. Vacation time for new people is very small. Not much room to progress within the company, you will probably have the same job forever. Company getting more into outsourcing.

    Advice to Management

    Stop the take-over. The small sub-companies do much better without the corporate parent's nagging.

    "Some divisions felt disconnected from corporate"

    Pros

    The company has a solid reputation in the marketplace, and a great benefit package. Senior management tried to make it an enjoyable place to work.

    Cons

    My division was acquired several years ago, but it never seemed to assimilate under the Thomson Reuters umbrella. Felt disconnected from Corporate. Questionable promotions.

    Advice to Management

    Just remember that company culture starts from the top. Put more emphasis on assimilating your acquisitions into the Thomson Reuters culture.
