    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, intelligent, talented staff. Friendly environment. Ability to work remotely is supported. Good work/life balance programs.

    Cons

    Change for changes sake, constant structural and process changes that produce nothing of value in terms of product but only increase share holder value

    Advice to Management

    Focus less on the quarterly report and more on the long game. Do you really have superior products and customer service.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing and there's a lot of work life balance. Probably the only benefit missing is on-site daycare.

    Cons

    I used to love TR. I couldn't imagine being anywhere else. The people were wonderful, the job was challenging. Then they hired some unequipped managers and restructured everything. Now it's incredibly toxic, backstabbing, lots of turnover and denial that it's due to all the changes recently. It's sad, I miss how things used to be.

    Advice to Management

    Wrike isn't working, it needs to be automated and less complex. If the system isn't intuitive, easy to learn, and saves times - it isn't a good system/isn't working.

    Pros

    This is a great company for work/life balance. Depending on your manager, you have the opportunity to work from home. The people that work here, no matter what their title is, are very nice. Pay is great, especially as compared to our competitors.

    Cons

    Constant restructuring of company leads to feelings of instability and confusion. Also, because there are not a lot of promotional or growth opportunities, I've seen that many people just work the bare minimum because there is little incentive to go above and beyond. Diversity could definitely be improved, the higher you look up in the corporate ladder of this company the more everyone looks the same. The majority... of the company's jobs are in MN by the way, which has further limited the opportunities for those that work outside of those offices.

    Advice to Management

    Work on ways to creating more growth opportunities and promote or otherwise reward those who work hard in the company. Work on hiring more diverse candidates not just for junior roles, but for upper management/director roles as well.

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Business Operations Analyst in New York, NY
    Recommends
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good work/life balance (especially for NYC), my manager was great & very professional, micromanagement was not something that was prevalent throughout the workforce, vibrant office culture (at least for the most part), flexibility to work from home once established, pretty reputable company that will enable you to gain exposure in a countless number of areas, and overall solid product.

    Cons

    Layoffs & employee turnover is excessively high, bureaucracy & corporatism has unfortunately become more and more rampant, poor compensation for the entry & mid-level employees that are required to wear many hats, lack of job security & upward career mobility, too much emphasis on org restructuring & trying to remain "agile," some in executive leadership or at the director level can lack... transparency, some in HR can by phony, some in IT can be rather shortsighted, and the health benefits & employee perks are mediocre especially for such a large scale organization.

    Advice to Management

    When things are economically sustainable, customers are satisfied, employees are loyal, the product is working, and the org is growing at a manageable pace there is no need to go in over your head and jeopardize it; actions have consequences and change is not always for the better hence, the 'domino effect.'

    Pros

    Work Life Balance Praised when boss likes you

    Cons

    Work life Balance is flaunted as a perk but isn’t exactly given. Upper management has lack of humanity for employees If promoted on the same team, old managers have a hard time letting go of control and new manager allows too much delegation by old manager causing confusion.

    Advice to Management

    “Trust is at the heart of what we do” start with putting some of that trust into your employees. Micromanaging adults creates a hostile work environment. Take some culture and sensitivity training and learn how to be mindful of others cultures.
