    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Overall I have had a positive experience at TR starting as an software engineer out of college. Most technologist are sharp although dispersed across teams and departments. There is an emphasis on life work balance, and a push for positive culture and development. They offer competitive salary, benefits, and training options to develop yourself further.

    Cons

    The business often doesn't know what they want until a random rainy day when they want it now. There is 'top talent' retention issues, but 'bottom talent' seems to linger forever and anchor projects. The cloud initiative is slow moving. If you work on the back-end, expect little glory even though your contribution may be critical to a new product or features success. No pizza for the back-end teams :(

    Advice to Management

    Work on growing and retaining top-talent and letting go of the employees who are here to collect paychecks and anchor projects.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Practice what you preach at all levels.

    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.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Thomson Reuters is a pretty large company, and the medical insurance premiums are pretty low because of that. They also have 401k matching and a good parental leave policy.

    Cons

    The medical insurance carrier changed every year I was there. Although work-life balance is promoted by the company, expectations and pressure from upper management through team managers tend to encourage short delivery deadlines and excessive work hours.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a closer eye on how teams are being managed to make sure that excessive work hours are the exception, not the rule.

    Pros

    Decent pay, coworkers, cafeterias, benefits and work-life balance.

    The work itself is tedious and repetitive.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to keep employees engaged.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very flexible, many people run side businesses and have time to do so. Company generally open to relocating employees.

    Cons

    Unless you find an unofficial senior sponsor, you will be mostly stuck in your current role. My advice is only to manage uphill, it may go against your nature, but it is the only way to ensure you have career growth.
