    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule and ability to work from home.

    Cons

    The company has been shifting over the past few years away from an old world legal print publisher to a software company, but they haven't put the resources into their engineers or the support behind the products to adequately support the sales teams. Morale is really low across the board. Most perks have been taken away. Lots of lay-offs every year and people leaving in droves for other companies.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your human resources, both financially and through competent mentorship. If you ask everyone to do more with less, every year, eventually you'll burn out your best people.

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

    Pros

    Super laid back environment (you can wear whatever you want, aside from shorts and yoga pants) I thought that was ridiculous. Because working in D.C I thought that i would need to buy suits. But i literally go into work in jeans and a tshirt.

    Easy job, all you do is a couple of criminal searches, hardly ever busy

    Nearly everyone here is young and fresh out of college or in grad school

    Easy chance of internal promotion

    Once you're a full time employee you get a salary raise

    Cons

    You start off as a contractor and have to have good performance reviews to get promoted as a full time employee. That takes a maximum of 6months- 1 year.

    Advice to Management

    Turn contractors into full time employees faster, or else at the risk of having good employees leave for better pay elsewhere.

    Good Work Life Balance. Depending on the unit you work for there is potential for growth. Great Benefits
