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

    Pros

    Some lovely people although most have left. Handy location, assuming you live in Canary Wharf. A good place for an intern to spend a year. No longer though.

    Cons

    Many layers of management. Who has the highest salary has the loudest voice. No real interest in anything from middle management other than protecting their own reputations. Do any particularly valuable work and someone more senior will end up getting promoted on the back of it. Some interesting personalities in senior positions with more and more middle / senior management coming and going all the time I was there.

    Advice to Management

    Have a think about why people either have over 20 years under their belts or leave after 2 or 3 years.

    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.

    Pros

    Management is nice, Relaxed offices. Nice location

    Cons

    No time to develop internal skills. If there is no budget you cannot do your own side projects

    I worked at Thomson Reuters as a contractor

    Pros

    big organisation, looks good on the cv, friendly people, square mile type culture

    Cons

    feels like being a cog in a machine, one of many, not so personal if that's what your looking for

    Advice to Management

    i think for a corporate company it seems to be ok but there still could be improvements made in terms of the culture
