    Pros

    Highly ethical company with a large amount of community involvement everywhere they have a presence. Great culture and a genuine care for employees.

    Cons

    Continuous cost cutting means you're always asked to do more with less. There's an unspoken expectation of being 'always on'. Can be a bit of a 'sweat shop'.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I have met and worked alongside some great people at Thomson Reuters.

    Cons

    If you are a man and are older than 40 - you don't stand a chance at Thomson Reuters. Cowardly leadership and support. They don't stand behind employees, not do they care about your service with the company. Pay is below industry standards and cost of living increases are terrible as well. Great place to work if you simply want a job with no advancement - just come to work, do your job, be quiet, collect your paycheck and life is good. Culture is so fake and the people are so self-unaware that they actually think they are doing a good job of building a new culture, when they are really just fostering the "worker bee" mentality. Do yourself a favor....find a job at a company that cares about the individual more than winning hollow awards and trying to get people to think that Thomson is a great place to work. It is not. I am actually ashamed to tell people that I work at Thomson Reuters knowing what I now know.

    Advice to Management

    Connect with people and make bold choices that are for the good of the employee. Hire managers who have the guts to hire the right people - not just people that allow the company to brag about how diverse they are. Be transparent and know that every employee is a person first, not just a number.


  7. "H-1B workers are favored over Americans."

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Work from home, semi decent work environment.

    Cons

    Company prefer to retain H-1B workers instead of American workers. US workers are usually the first to be laid off while H-1B workers are retained. Also, unless you belong to a certain " click" you will receive an unfavorable Annual review. As a result you will not be considered for a salary increase. Furthermore, HR's only interest is to prevent the company from Lawsuits. Avoid this company if you can.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good company with average salary and benefits. I was able to grow and work at different levels and different business units within the company. Strong technical talent at all levels.

    Cons

    People can hide in their roles and Manager / Architects and above are not challenged enough to grow the capabilities of the business. No consistent direction from the Board and leadership on where they want to go.

    Advice to Management

    Define who you are and where you want to go with the company and stick with a consistent plan. Moving majority of IT to offshore model will only maintain what you have if you don't reinvest in the future.

    Pros

    Great benefits, PTO, Sick Pay, Medical, Dental, 401k match. Opportunity to move laterally within company always helps with burnout.

    Cons

    A lot of reorganization of groups. Management can't keep up with the constant change of priority. Lots of jobs are moved to India.

    Advice to Management

    Dont reorganize groups that have been together less than a year. You are losing great employees because of a lack of direction.
