    Leading edge products in the IT industry. Great benefits, programs, and learning opportunities. A keen eye on diversity, especially developing women for leadership roles.

    Recent downsizing reduced job availability to fewer locations. Uncertainty with frequent reorganization causing competitive atmosphere. Maybe better after downsizing.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The company offers great flexibility for work/life balance. They offer remote work options, generous vacation policies and paid volunteer opportunities for working with charities in your community. They also have a phenomenal family leave policy in the event you need time off for having a baby or caring for a sick family member.

    Cons

    Higher management has started a trend in recent years that combines unrealistic goal-setting with a lack of investment in resources which would keep the product offerings current for the market. This results in client disappointment and low morale within the departments.

    Pros

    Regimented structure that provided a decisive strategic plan. Active senior executive leadership that provided guidance from the top down. Creative with products!

    Cons

    Could be too matrix at times. The excessive matrix structure created duplication of efforts, systems and processes that caused internal, as well as external confusion at times. Great opportunity for efficiencies!

    Advice to Management

    Streamline central services to alleviate some of the duplications and excess spend
