    Pros

    Your time, effort and most importantly the work that you do is valued to a full extent. The dining area downstairs is amazing and has like buffet feel with breakfast, lunch and dinner served. They also have Starbucks! :D

    Right outside of Canary wharf station even if its raining its not an issue because its only a 1 minute walk to get to the front doors of the Thomson Reuters Building.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say. Everything has exceeded my expectations.

    Pros

    - Great salary,
    - Amazing benefits - medical and dental cover, up to 30 days of annual leave, pension scheme, corporate discounts, bonus...
    - Opportunity to act for the community - paid volunteer leave, payroll giving, matching donations...
    - Beautiful and easy-to-commute location,
    - Great commodities - nice building, cheap canteen, nice kitchen, nice working space,
    - Diverse environment - male and female employees, different ethnicity, origin... Fingers crossed with the Brexit!
    - Work flexibility and great life/work balance,
    - The great organisation within teams allows to fully concentrate on a single domain,
    - Interesting tasks and great opportunities to develop projects.

    Cons

    It's very hard to find cons, but if I had to pick I'd say:
    - Big global company means decisions and processes can be slow.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on respecting and appreciating the value of your employees, it is extremely appreciated.

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

    Pros

    Good work life balance
    Nice offices
    Good pension
    Good share scheme

    Cons

    I worked in marketing in Thomson Reuters legal division. My move to Thomson Reuters was one of the worst decisions for my career so far. I found that the role underskilled me, and didn’t develop me in the way that I expected. I took the role expecting it to be more senior, and hold more responsibility than my previous role had, but this unfortunately wasn’t the case. Within my previous roles, I was expecting the induction and onboarding process at Thomson Reuters to be very positive, informative, and professional, and this wasn’t the case. I really wasn’t aware of my role responsibilities or anyone else’s within the wider team. The marketing department has a very low level of moral and team spirit. Various members of staff have now left after a few months in role, and the team are under resourced from a management perspective, which creates a lack of consistency and direction for the department.

    Pros

    Well known global brand that customers trust.

    Pros

    The people here are always great - have only worked with one person I didn't get on with in almost 20 years. Lots of international opportunity as well.

    Cons

    Usual problem of "growing" is its aim. Which is difficult when it isn't the #1 in its ex-Reuters marketplace. The company is also extremely silo-ed as a consequence.

    Pros

    A reputable and professional company to work for. Offers an interactive environment (many social events to sign-up for).

    Cons

    Within the department I was working for, I found the career development to be limited - there was no career progression or salary increase despite increase in workload and responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and give more recognition and rewards to employees who deserve it, particularly for junior roles
