  1. "Good work-life balance and benefits but pay could be better"

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

    Pros

    4 weeks paid leave, 4 float holidays, over a week of sick leave
    good corporate citizenship with volunteer opportunities
    fitness/wellness program
    casual dress code

    Cons

    pay could be more competitive
    not much room for growth and challenge

    Advice to Management

    Direct management is passive-aggressive. Don't often know what one is doing wrong until it's been done; no guidelines for setting good example and leadership. Senior management is far away. Smaller-owned firms may feel isolated.

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

    Pros

    I was there for 8 years. Work/life balance was good under my manager. Overall I loved it there. Particularly the first 7 years were great. We were allowed to work from home, good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Work/life balance was terrible when I temporarily worked with another group.
    Layoffs happened 2 weeks after major project was finished. It felt like I was worked to death in then discarded. The last year they cut back on things like working from home, number of paid holidays, etc. Layoffs happen every couple of years. Not much room for career growth.

    Advice to Management

    My manager was great, and I wouldn't change a thing about that. But advice to the others I worked with would be to manage time better and not put things off to the last minute that forces people to work 60+ hour weeks. That could have been avoided with better planning.

    Pros

    - Great work/life balance and flexibility to adjust my schedule/hours to meet my family needs
    - Great leadership team that is dedicated to advancing my segment of the organization, driving diversity and inclusion initiatives, and ensuring that TR remains a destination employer

    Cons

    - TR is a large organization and, as with any company of this size, could do a better job of sharing best practices, resources, and information across or within business units to maximize effort and results

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The department I was in was fantastic (Boston), as well as all others we dealt with - real emphasis on and respect for individual contributions.

    Cons

    • seemed lack of focus on long-term projects
    • not great relationship between middle and upper management (i blame upper)
    • pay was decent but bonus systems seemed complex with arbitrary payouts

    Advice to Management

    as middle management did without exception to all workers, upper-management needed/s to listen to what's happening "on the ground"

    Pros

    Overall, large company with good reputation and benefits

    Cons

    Depending on what you are working on, you will have a lot of attention, or zero attention. As it is a large corporation, upper management may not be too involved or knowledgeable about what you are doing. no room to grow in local offices unless you are willing to move to locations where headquarters are.
