    great managers ! One of the best companies I have worked for .

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've had various jobs over my 4 years at TR, relatively simple to move horizontally.
    Great culture and people.
    Respectful and inclusive workplace
    People respect their work, and each other, and work hard

    Cons

    Normal big company frustrations - things take a long time, lots of meetings
    To get where you want you need to drive and motivate yourself to get there. This isn't necessarily a con but personality and attitude is very important, as it is in any business.
    Some morale issues after recent redundancies.

    Advice to Management

    People are so devoted to their jobs that long hours do seem to be ingrained in the culture. I guess more of an emphasis on changing this culture would be good. To make sure that management is not encouraging or expecting this.

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

    Pros

    Your time, effort and most importantly the work that you do is valued to a full extent. The dining area downstairs is amazing and has like buffet feel with breakfast, lunch and dinner served. They also have Starbucks! :D

    Right outside of Canary wharf station even if its raining its not an issue because its only a 1 minute walk to get to the front doors of the Thomson Reuters Building.

    Cons

    Nothing bad to say. Everything has exceeded my expectations.

    Cons

    It's very hard to find cons, but if I had to pick I'd say:
