    Pros

    Great colleagues and good work balance.
    Large portfolio of products giving you the opportunity to work on very interesting data sets across various domains

    Cons

    Very large company so sometimes it takes a lot of back and forth with teams at the other end of the world to get things done.
    Top management seems to be ever changing their vision and keeps re-inventing the wheel.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and set clear goals so that people on the ground can get their job done.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters (More than a year)

    Pros

    As a field employee, you work from home with the ability to work in an office in metropolitan areas. You have a lot of autonomy to manage your territory as long as you are hitting your numbers and goals.

    Cons

    There is very little employee development or investment in sales training, managers are often without sales experience and unable to coach deals or help in the process and there is very little opportunity to advance because middle management stays in those positions for their entire career.

    Advice to Management

    More development of field employees and paths for advancement

    Pros

    Got to work on some really cool projects. Had access to infinite finance data. Really smart people to learn from. Great work from home policy.

    Cons

    There were no intern fun things like they do at other companies. It was just a show up and go home type of place. Great work from home policy- but this meant nobody worked on the work from home days. Nobody got full time offers.

    Advice to Management

    Give bonuses like promised, try to fire bad apples from ruining morale. Don't try to be like Steve Jobs and rent out Moscone center and then expect everyone to be excited.

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

    Pros

    Working from a home office has a lot of perks, especially if you have a family or would like the ability to take 4 day weekends (working with your remote internet connection while traveling on a Monday / Friday). The company offers a ton of training and the people are really supportive. Management has an "old school" mentality, and they do not function like a more modern day tech company.

    Cons

    "Old school" management mentality leads to expecting more work out of fewer people. As an Account Manager, there is a large focus on new sales, AND retention - however, these are two jobs that can consume a lot of time. The first year of this position is EXTREMELY time consuming because you must learn the product, industry, and client specifics.

    Advice to Management

    Great job providing learning resources for all of the field reps - however, if retention is a big goal moving forward, the mid-market / large account CSM team could use some help and extra man-power.

    Pros

    Great life / work balance. Good international company. Good experience in various technologies. Good experience working with employees all over the world.

    Cons

    As with all large companies, things took longer than they should have to get done. I also wish there had been more collaboration between different parts of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Work on making the entire company more cohesive. There is a lot of information to share between various parts of the company, so figure out a way to make that available to all the employees.
