Interview

Very quick and detailed. The hiring manager was very responsive and communicative. There was a phone interview and two in person interviews. I've interviewed for a former role and did not get the offer, but with this hiring manager the process was really quick.

    Software Engineer Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Eagan, MN (US)) in August 2019.

    Interview

    The process took a bit longer than expected. There was a several week delay between phone screen and in person interview. The in-person interview consisted of a technical interview and an interview with one of the managers for the area. After the interview I was ghosted and received no response on whether I got the position or not. This type of behavior is unacceptable and I have no respect for this practice.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Philadelphia, PA (US)) in October 2018.

    Interview

    Terrible Communication, they do not respond to emails. Would not recommend anyone interview here, it is a waste of time. If they ignore people imagine how they feel about their employees. Absolutely horrible experience.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Dallas, TX (US)) in September 2017.

    Interview

    It was a short interview, and not too hard. I was recommended by a current employee, and did not have too much experience, so maybe they went easy on me.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in May 2017.

    Interview

    Applied online, got contacted by a recruiter, then phone screen. After those, I was given a coding exercise to finish in a week. The exercise took me a couple of hours. The last step was meeting the team on site for about 3 hours. Half of it was about the coding exercise, the other half was getting to know each other. The process was pretty comfortable - the exact opposite of the "inquisition" style other companies tend to do. All the folks there are genuinely nice.
