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

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Better than any job I've worked before. Sales culture is fairly laid back and friendly. However the managers expect high performance every month. Product is premium in the industry not hard to sell content more hard to sell price. Very expensive.

    Cons

    Quota's can be very high. Print is decreasing in popularity among customer's. The legal industry is slowly transitioning to digital research. You are constantly competing against your own colleagues that sell Westlaw.

    Advice to Management

    Need more incentives for how hard and well the print representatives work. Especially with how dry the print product is.

    Pros

    The people are the best thing about Thomson Reuters. The company believes in continuing process improvement, training and education. It is very customer and employee focused. Employee metrics are clearly spelled out and expectations are communicated clearly. Management clearly appreciates employees and visa versa. Our corporate culture is driven from the top down by the CEO and it is embraced at all levels. The company encourages diversity, volunteer work and pro-bono activity. Thomson Reuters is a great example of a company that means what it says and demonstrates it daily.

    Cons

    The company is growing and individuals are being promoted which sometimes affects client continuity and relationships from a customer standpoint.

    Advice to Management

    Continue with the CRI / CMI segmentation as it gives the customer additional points of contact and overlap which promote a better customer experience and promotes client loyalty.

    Pros

    Major focus on marketing transformation under new CMO to improve marketing skill and marketing-attributable sales
    Corporate values - trust, partnership, innovation, performance
    Strong commitment to Diversity & Inclusion
    Super smart and collaborative colleagues and very interesting work
    Work/life balance and workplace amenities (like walking trails, fitness center, game room, Caribou Coffee shop, etc.)
    Learning & Development opportunities and opportunities to be promoted

    Cons

    Conservative salary increases
    If you're a purely creative marketer, you may not love it here. Creativity and design sensibility are desired, but you need to prove results and have strong business acumen and analytical skill to do well.
    Still a ways to go on the Diversity & Inclusion

    Pros

    Good benefits, good work life balance. Some great managers, some not so great. Organized sales channel. We'll respected in the market.

    Cons

    Annual Oct\Nov reorg\lay off is nerve racking. Trying to cut their way to growth. Recent HR policy basically announced non-minority males will have a harder time getting promoted. Comp is below average.

    Advice to Management

    Promote based on skill and ability, not by gender or skin color quotas. Invest in your existing products.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters as an intern

    Pros

    Friendly, team focused, lots to learn, as an intern I really felt like part of the team, fantastic work life balance (even for non-interns)

    Cons

    Eagan is not a great area, a very "corporate" environment (cubicals, cafeteria, etc.), Not a place I would describe as hip

    Pros

    Great work life balance. Great team work environment. Great management (at least the team I am in). Decent chance to hone skills that are desirable in market.

    Cons

    Constant anticipation of company restructuring. Unclear path of career advancement. Less than satisfactory level of company wise know-how integration. Company value departmentalized, some great values were not shared from team to team, largely depending on the attitude of said team management.

    Advice to Management

    Operation cash flow planning in accordance with fiscal cycle is important, but caution should be taken to avoid morale trap that chills knowledge sharing and work enthusiasm.

    Pros

    PTO, work life balance is good. Fun people to work with. Training is decent. Good place to go if your interested in how the law works. Spiffs and incentives are decent.

    Cons

    Lots of restructure. Pay has gone down and responsibilities have increased. You could be there for years but if you have a few bad months you can be shown the door.

    Pros

    Decent benefits, good vacation- which you'll definitely need, nice campus. The people are very nice across all levels

    Cons

    Work life balance is a joke- they are no longer back filling so many roles so the work load is almost unbearable. Most everyone on the teams are burned out. No time to take a lunch, let alone think about going for a walk on the trails etc. It's really too bad because it could be made better, but they won't do it just to save a buck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop digging your own grave. It won't be long until a lot of your sold staff has had enough and takes off.
