    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 5 years)

    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.
