    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Used to be a great place to work, before office move from Swiss Cottage. However there are still some fantastic people working there.
    New Canary Wharf office is very spacious and clean.

    Cons

    Extremely low wages, high volumes of work often having to work longer hours with minimal support. Deadlines put forward at the last moment has become a common theme.
    Management tend to be two faced and not honest enough to tell it like it is.

    Incredibly flexible company. Super good environment, people being really nice. You do learn a lot about costumer facing and how to manage different type of clients. Large number of internal opportunities across the world.

    Cons

    Too relaxed environment compared to other companies. Sometimes you will find hard to get other teams do their job.

    Pros

    Work-life balance
    Generous vacation days
    Great diversity within the company

    Cons

    Job security is awful. There has been rounds of lay-off over the past years
    Other places pay more for the same job
    Very limited room to move up with your career path.
    Not enough IT resources to provide support.
    I run into non-competitive people every so often.

    Advice to Management

    Hire someone who has expertise in their fields and pay them more. Stop hiring people with little experience just because the company don't have to pay them as much.

    Pros

    Feel valued, flexible working options, recognizes efforts. Well regarded for trust and independence. Impartiality with regard to the information it provides.

    Cons

    I have had a very good experience working here, at present I am unable to provide a major or even minor con.

    Advice to Management

    Really lead from the top down, enterprise programs to help the workforce should be carried out under the lead by example framework.

    Pros

    Diversity, equality - check, check. Definitely issues that are being discussed and hopefully addressed.
    Great maternity package (UK). Generally everything you'd expect from a big company.
    People and culture really depend on the department. F&R and TR Labs are almost like two different companies, for example.
    But messages from leadership are all on point. Love their attitude to Women in Technology (being one of them) and bringing more women to leadership roles. Thumbs up.

    Cons

    HR is a bit chaotic. Witnessed a colleague's struggle to get promoted although her boss and the boss's boss were all onboard. I'm yet to get promoted so will see how it goes.
    A bit corporate. Travel budget, culture, etc. really depends on the team you are in.

    Advice to Management

    Have a look at how HR operates. Make sure we retain the talent not just acquire.
