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

    Pros

    Flexible work environment. Good work/life balance. Interesting projects and very smart co-workers. Overall the company treated me very well.

    Cons

    Ongoing budget tightening and limits on capital investment since the Reuters 'merger'. Core markets of Legal and Financial are not what they were before the 2008 crash; and may never be again. Drive to offshore North American jobs is accelerating. Layoffs technology groups for the first time. Overall don't feel good about where the company is heading.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting good people who know your business go. Offshoring is not the answer and cutting your way to profitability doesn't work. Find a way to leverage you North American employees to address new growth markets.

    Pros

    They really invest in their talent and customers.

    Cons

    Large company, so you have to be self-driven to move around...not necessarily a bad thing.

    Advice to Management

    Keep re-investing in products.

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

    Pros

    -Flexible hours
    -Good benefits outside the workplace - some 401k matching for example

    Cons

    -Pinching pennies everywhere - switched to having just a few communal trash cans for a floor, got rid of plates and bowls in the kitchen, never even had cups, etc.
    -Annual raise is about the same as inflation but that's probably true of most big companies
    -We were all moved to an open work space plan which is very bad for productivity. Hard to stay focused when working in the middle of a call center for a few months of the year (support season) - the vast majority of employees were strongly against the OWP due to it not working well with our work environment
    -Management is not responsive to ideas from below them until it meets their direct and immediate objectives

    Advice to Management

    Please include employees in at least some decision making that affects us and our work. We often better understand our own implementation and can save more time and money overall if we can be a part of the process not just told what to do after others decide for us. Also please be open and direct about organizational change instead of hiding it behind corporate jargon. We all now know that "standardizing benefits across global departments" means we are losing some perk.

    Pros

    Pretty decent benefits (health care, 3% match to 401k, time off, flexibility

    Cons

    Very little room for any advancement either in pay or in position. Company continually cutting little things (most recent one was to say no individual trash containers, only group "bins" somewhere on the floor.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating employees like we're all replaceable. There is alot of historical/institutional knowledge with employees that directly benefits products and services.

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with technology. There is a lot of effort to be open and welcoming culture to all employees. Lots of travel opportunities. Flexible hours, some work from home opportunities.

    Cons

    Employees are treated as a cost liability. Employee benefits and day-to-day niceties are sliding and have been for years. The uniform and accepting culture does not reward excellent employees for fear of being disrespectful of under-performing employees.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is focused on being profitable in the short term, which is hurting our long-term potential. Some of these efficiency cuts are demoralizing. Outsourcing employees and eliminating jobs are demoralizing, as the cuts are always directly related to performance.

    Pros

    *Some terrific people at this company.
    *Tends to be good work-life balance and flexibility.
    *There is a lot going on. Always something new to learn or do. A very exciting, engaging workplace.

    Cons

    *Outsourcing has made it hard to get even basic tasks completed. The transition to outsourced providers has been rocky and there is not enough oversight of the quality of service provided.

    Advice to Management

    *Develop your people and continue the focus on diverse recruiting.
    *See the whole picture of outsourcing and the productivity costs that come with it, rather than just the bottom line.
