    Pros

    A reputable and professional company to work for. Offers an interactive environment (many social events to sign-up for).

    Cons

    Within the department I was working for, I found the career development to be limited - there was no career progression or salary increase despite increase in workload and responsibility.

    Advice to Management

    Reward hard work and give more recognition and rewards to employees who deserve it, particularly for junior roles

  10. "Very much a curate's egg"

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

    Pros

    Large corporation with varied functions.

    Cons

    A distinct political undertone. The Reuters end of the business in particular expects one to accept a very pronounced politically correct agenda. Outsourced support services are so bad it is at times comical. e.g. a Finance department paying invoices in the wrong currency (and then blaming TR staff!), an IT helpdesk that didn't know what a web browser is; and a procurement service that took nearly a month to by a USB memory stick (the cost was four times the price for which an identical product - same brand and capacity - could have been bought locally). Benefits are falling behind those of comparable companies.

    Advice to Management

    Try to restrain the more enthusiastic PC brigade. Get a grip on the outsourced services and be prepared to accept that "We got it wrong". It really helps if you think when you have an IT problem that the person you are dealing with is not simply trying to tick a box and will stick with the job until it is resolved.
