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

    Pros

    Lots of room to advance or move laterally and explore different career trajectories; good benefits; senior leadership is working hard on talent development.

    Cons

    Salaries tend to lag behind industry standards; often it seems lateral hires are brought in a higher wage points than internally promoted people.

    Advice to Management

    Reward talent with wage increases.

    Pros

    Rating TR is hard because it can totally depend on what dept you're in. I'm in Legal and, while there are negatives, overall I like the company a lot. I feel like they care for employees and want you to succeed. They offer lots of ways for you to grow as an employee and want you to stay and develop your career.

    Cons

    Like any jobs, most of the cons will be dependent on who your manager is. For general TR cons, the company is huge and doesn't change quickly. It can feel like you're behind the times. The salary is also lower than in other, similar jobs. The job titles and job structure can be really complicate (on purpose) so it's hard to compare your job and tasks to others.

    Pros

    Great benefits, holidays, floating holidays, 2 paid volunteer days per year, generous time off. Fairly flexible on hours in most departments.

    Cons

    Absolutely no room to grow. No development, can't move up even though they claim you can. Even changing departments doesn't help. They hire from outside to find Directors and hire-ups much of the time. Extremely disheartening. You eventually give up trying...and start trolling Glassdoor to see what else is out there.

    Good luck with raises, too. It's all a "pool." The highest you'll get is 2% and it's based on how well you do compared to your co-workers in your department. If one does better, they get a higher percentage...and it takes from the others. They have no problem giving out "Average"or "Partially Achieved" reviews to employees to justify giving more to those who "Exceeded." You feel guilty when you get more, resentment when you get less. And everyone is pissed off when they hear their friends of similar talents and experience are moving up in their companies, getting well-deserved pay, and bonuses.

    Advice to Management

    Next time you give raises, give everyone "Achieved" so everyone gets a raise. EVERYONE works hard and exceeds at something at some point during the year. (The co-worker that thinks they are the only one who did is delusional.) Or...is the rumor true that you HAVE to give out at least one "partially achieved" so you can give out at least one "exceeded"? If so, it's a horrible way of managing talent, telling someone they are mediocre when they aren't.

    Pros

    Interesting work, lots of opportunity to learn many different business lines, ability to move into different business lines.

    Cons

    Not a lot of support - my boss didn't really know what I did (partially my fault!) - their business model is to lay people off regularly (end of year) when they need to make the bottom line look good to the shareholders. Lots of politics and people with hidden agendas trying to position themselves to look good. It's hard to know how you are REALLY doing in the eyes of your management.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on your people, not your profit.

    Pros

    If you do good work, and you are persistent, you can find ways to move up at Thomson. Great work/life balance.

    Generally lower pay than other employers.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -Real World Experience
    -Amazing/helpful team and group environment
    -Challenging (This is not an internship where you can slack which is what you should want)
    I highly recommend this internship for people who are serious about their career and want to learn.

    Cons

    This was my first time working in the corporate world, and as an intern there is a lot of information to learn. I worked for Thomson Reuters for over a year and understood the company and vision after about 3 months. However, the first few months were very intense and difficult because of the on boarding material. Great company and experience, but I would not recommend doing this internship if you are only able to for the summer; you just will not get enough out of it.

    Advice to Management

    I did not have very much "formal training" at first, it may be helpful to spend a week going over TR information and where the team stands in the company, what they do, the teams purpose, etc. This may help people understand the work better from the start.
