Good management who consider staff aspirations to progress within and outside of the business Ok pay but needs to be reviewed regularly and inline with sector pay
Work life balance is poor and the ability to work from home is significantly reduced as you progress within the business Hours as above are excessive with limited remote working ability

Fast paced work culture Favorites do progress within teams Need to be top on skills turn around time must be quick
Information and details within the Manager / Leadership teams only No work life balance lots of meeting & reporting High Attrition

Can be great company to work for, depending on which team or dept. you are in...managers who understand work/life balance and that don't micromanage is a huge plus. However, those who aren't can make work unbearable at times in development. Flex-time and VPN access or ability to work remote are important and should be offered across the board to developers.
Inability to take many days off during the winter holidays and breaks due to release schedules.

This is a very human company that cares about its employees. A work-life balance is important nowadays and I'm happy to work for a company that has an XXI-century mindset.
Nothing so far... It's been good!

Good pay, the best products in the industry
High Stress. They tend to promote the worst to management. Executive leadership was basically absent. They say pretty words about work/life balance and corporate culture but they really don't care about those things - they just want you to meet your goals. People who were very successful were reduced to metrics and quotas and treated AWFULLY.4Thomson Reuters Response6y

Thomson Reuters is a great company to work for and after being here for 10 years I stil respect and love the company and what the businesses it has. They are flexible and allow you to have a healthy balance between work and your social life. People are friendly and you can work on some great projects.
The compensations is not great if you have spent 10 years in the company even if your career has progress well in terms of responsibilities and promotions and you are a constant achiever in the top 10% in end of the year performance reviews. The disappointing thing about Thomson Reuters is that you often end up having to accomodate a lot of people that don't really do anything useful apart from add bureaucracy for the sake of looking like they are involved and doing something.

Getting exposed to different technologies and working on different flat forms
Pay is low and there are some teams that don't have good work and life balance

Seniors encourage juniors to work on different areas and there is always good work and life balance.
poor compensation and not at par with the job market. there is less changes of Career shift and less chances for growth

The company has good benefits- 3 weeks of time off to start, good company 401K match and good healthcare plans at reasonable rates to employees. Good work-life balance and flexible work arrangements are usually encouraged (depending on your manager).
Frequent senior leadership changes and weak centralized leadership of projects mean projects are often slow starters or are abandoned before they reach their potential. Very political environment, with a lot of in-fighting and disagreement among senior leaders. Far fewer training and job movement opportunities for those who are not located in the "mothership" in Minnesota. The company has experienced a lot of turnover recently of strong employees who became frustrated with the direction of the company and lack of opportunity. Low salaries, and raises have become few or nonexistent in recent years. Not confident in the future of this company.2

Good ethical place to work, no toxicity as I saw afterwards in some other places. Great, nice and helpful colleagues, managers as well as customers and flexitime was a big us and much appreciated!
Salary could have been better but flexiblity and work /life balance were more important to me then
