    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    Not many pros are here.

    Cons

    The department I work in many new sales rep are failing at their job because manager lacks the ability to provide sales training and guidance. Because of this, our sales department has not been hitting quota. Reps are leaving and management has checked out. Majority of management have not been successful in sales when they were selling as well.

    Advice to Management

    Reorganize your sales leadership. Bring in management that knows the sales process and has been successful at sales. Put office politics aside. If not, this part of the company will not succeed.

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    - Good work/life balance
    - Can work from home
    - People generally leave you alone to do work. No micromanagement.

    Cons

    - Office temperature is around 78-80 F in the summer.
    - Holes in the wall
    - Leaking ceiling
    - Ceiling Water stains
    - Carpet loose/peeling
    - Computers are slow
    - Software Development practices are about decade behind
    - Poor accountability. I have to ask my questions multiple times in several different ways before they get answered.
    - Nearly all important aspects mentioned in the interview ended up being completely false.
    - Stated that they are Agile, but having done Agile software development for many years it obvious that upper management is not on-board with doing agile and their software architecture makes agile software development more difficult.
    - A lot of repetitive software development tasks that should really be automated.
    - Copy and paste coders
    - Few developers know how to use the command-line.
    - No code reviews
    - I am working on a project using technologies that were not discussed during the interview. Had I know that I would be working on this project, I would have not accepted the position.

    Advice to Management

    - Please advice employees not to lie during interviews
    - The office is run-down. Put in some money to fix all the cosmetic issues.
    - Agile software development starts from the top down with changes to personnel, and software. Hire a consultant to provide advice. Anyone who has previously done scrum/agile won't be happy here if they are expecting to do agile work.

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

    Pros

    Casual work environment - I've seen men wearing shorts in the summer. Many departments are ok with remote work. Name recognition.

    Cons

    Chaos prone, no real career growth or career paths. Constant churn of managers and acquisitions means being generally uninformed as an employee about company status or opportunities. Overall lack of transparency from the top.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on growing internal talent and transparency.

    Pros

    the people are great, great community and friends

    Cons

    constant lay-offs, most new-hires are outside of US. Hours expected to work on-call and just to get regular work done is unmanageable.

    Advice to Management

    I have never received any offer of training while here for over 2 years. Security is a joke, and the technology in use is often 10+ years old.

    Pros

    Difficult to find real ones. NYC location has good commute. I do not need to have real skills over there you had to talk good.

    Cons

    Politics, nonsense, UK/EU is trying to take over US. Lack of leaders, concepts. Total mess. Grow by purchase of other companies and kills them..

    Advice to Management

    Close technology offices in EU these guys sit there and wait for pensions and bloc all initiatives . Get new CTO.

    - Too many managers and directors with golden handcuffs (pension plan)
    - Most employees don't care. They are talented but with low morale.
    - No clear vision of TR direction.
    - 3 architects in 1 project. Yuck!
    - No business analysis. It treats BAs like glorified secretaries.
    - A lot of discrimination!!

    Advice to Management

    None because they are selfish and won't value advices

    Pros

    co-workers were nice, and we made it fun! we learned from each other.

    Cons

    hmm...let's see:

    1. disrespectful language and behavior from management is acceptable.
    2. don't worry about talking to your hr person for help, because 9 out of 10 times, they are even more disrespectful!
    3. your manager will have a hard time differentiating you from the other person of color on your team. you have to get used to it.
    4. diversity is not a genuine interest at TR--well, it is if you are a millennial OR a white woman. diversity of religion or ethnicity is not valued.

    Advice to Management

    there's no point in offering advice...no one cares.
