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

    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.

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

    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.

    A good company to work for. Employees are engaged and there is a good atmosphere amongst colleagues. Work/Life balance is OK.

    Some good people working at Thomson Reuters, clever people who really understand the industry and work hard to do a good job.

    Stop managing the next quarter and take a longer term view.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I had one of the best experiences there. Unfortunately, I had to go back to my home country for personal issues and had to quit.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt there was too micro managing involved with some of the decisions. And sometimes things moved too slowly.

    Advice to Management

    I think this goes to most companies, but they could empower the employees a bit more. That will bring fruits.
