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

    Pros

    - great work/life balance
    - very collaborative and working with top notch people
    - focused on client needs

    Cons

    -very matrixed organization so decision making can be slow
    -external market conditions and changes drive many re-orgs and layoffs
    - health benefits are not as competetive as they use to be...more cost have been put on the employee to absorb.

    Advice to Management

    make the tough decisions on what to stop supporting so we can really focus on what is critical for the future. Invest in those areas. look benefits to see what changes should be made to put it in line with other comparable companies

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

    Pros

    Exposure to a global operation with a vast array of technology across disciplines including journalism, and financial market trading and analysis.

    Cons

    Annually, there are large numbers of dismissed employees. Salary is often below market level. Employees below the executive level are treated as not essential.

    Advice to Management

    Good performance should be rewarded, and employees should not be considered replaceable when they perform above average for their title and salary level. Consideration should be given for advancement and retention of loyal employees.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as an intern

    Pros

    I was an intern in the HR department and not only did I get placed with a good group - I was given multiple opportunities to branch out and learn as much as possible. They were flexible, and eager to teach me everything. Truly a good company.

    Cons

    Applied to a full time position and there was a miscommunication about the interview time. The HR correspondent was rude and stubborn and refused to reschedule the interview. Made the whole process unnecessarily difficult

    Pros

    They offer good benefits package.

    Cons

    Seems like you're always looking for next layoffs... which are annual. Tough to get things done through red tape, management seems to change direction with reorgs too often.

    Current Contractor - Global Creative Services in New York, NY

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters as a contractor

    Pros

    - Great work life balance. I'm out by 5pm almost every day unless I'm covering a colleague
    - Pay is a great perk (not sure about increases yet)
    - Very autonomous work environment. There's zero micromanaging in my department.

    Cons

    - Slow pace compared to an agency or B2B company
    - There's a long, corporate process for everything which makes simple tasks feel like that take forever to get an answer/resolved
    - From what I can tell, there's not much room for growth unless you change departments to move up

  8. "sales"

    Pros

    competitive, good opportunity, demanding, typical

    Pros

    Great Pay, banking days off.

    Cons

    Innovation is ultra slow. Tech stack is way out of date.

    Advice to Management

    Bottom line today matters. Bottom line tomorrow may matter more in certain instances.


  10. "Stable 9-5"

    Current Employee - Sales Associate in New York, NY

    Pros

    Stable job with good benefits. Famous company with many departments. Not too many complaints for a very very secure position

    Cons

    9-5. Not the most inspiring work at a low level. May feel like a cog in the whole a lot and most of the time.
