    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.

    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.

    Pros

    The management team I have worked with (2 in a year and friendly with more) have all been great. They are approachable and want you to succeed.

    Cons

    It is difficult to move into management because there are limited positions. I also think the company needs to be more forward thinking. A big part of their business is still books in print. The building and atmosphere feel dated as well.

    Advice to Management

    Be forward thinking and brighten up the office so people want to come to work. Or give more employees the option to work from home.

    Pros

    -Nice benefits
    -Decent Salary
    -Mostly intelligent co-workers
    -Super corporate
    -Decent cafeteria food
    -They have money, that's for sure

    Cons

    -Conflicting interests within product owners, resulting in frustration and bottle-neck for other teams and poorly stitched together product
    -Lack of care for co-workers
    -No one really values other people's opinions, they just "put it in the backlog"
    -General apathy from directors and team leads
    -My favorite quote from a co-worker: "It's funny how we call ourselves a leading edge technology company and we can't even provide our employees the proper tools"
    -Deadline concerned, not product or user concerned.
    -Cubicle
    -Lack of influence in projects (you're more-or-less a cog in a machine)
    -

    Advice to Management

    -Take some cues from companies in Palo Alto
    -Actually listen and implement some of the great ideas your employees suggest, instead of dumping it all in the back log

    Pros

    Most of the people are good and have a positive attitude.

    Cons

    The security group was mismanaged and limited staff meetings by management. The group was silo-ed and did not communicate with others sitting right next to them. Did not following government security controls or frameworks. Combined both auditing and Information security functions within one group without corporate governance approval resulting in subjective reviews.
