    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Flexible working
    Variety of projects
    Great culture

    Cons

    Difficult to progress, resulting in a lot of turnover of junior staff

    Advice to Management

    Take advantage of the skills already within the team before looking for more staff or to work with external partners. Would be good to encourage more social events/team bonding to help improve team work.

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

    Pros

    Result oriented. Can leave early or come in late as long as you finish the job. Nice colleagues.

    Cons

    Morale low due to lower pay compared to the market, yearly layoff and sold off some departments to other companies

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

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with some great people. Christmas party is brilliant. Excellent company for recent graduates as the pay can be decent in comparison to friends who graduated with me. Career progression is there dependent on what’s available at the time.

    Cons

    Can often be disorganised and highly focussed on revenue that they can often forget that this may impede the career direction of individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Think about the workload of employees and how your budgeting and planning affects those below you.

    Pros

    Big investment
    Lots of services to sell to clients

    Cons

    Big sales target.
    They acquired a lot of technology companies recently and because of this, targets have been increased drastically
    Legal online database now saturated

    Advice to Management

    Pricing of services is all over the place. Control this as clients do talk or they move around.

    Former Employee - Technical Architect in London, England (UK)

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

    Pros

    Amazing people. Great values. Great offices.
    Complex and exciting platforms. Interesting products. Smart people.
    I loved working there.

    Cons

    Teams/strategy are constantly reorganised/redefined by senior top management with lots of inaccurate redundancy and loss of knowledge involved.
    Amazing and highly productive people can be fired for just economical reasons.
    Bureaucracy and size of teams have a tendency to slow down projects.

    Advice to Management

    Stop firing great people! Find a way to organise people, and keep your strategy for at least 3 or 4 years in a row. Or be Agile about it, but keep people!

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

    Pros

    Collaborative work environment, fluid responsibilities (open to suggestions), good work/life balance benefits, nice building at South Colonnade

    Cons

    Disorganization, downsizing, contractors do not know their status until possibly the last second, lots of uncertainty overall

    Advice to Management

    The most senior management seems to have great goals (Diversity & Inclusion, progressive leadership etc) however middle-management seems more concerned with getting ahead personally. Individuals need more cohesion to the company.
