    Pros

    TR is an old-fashioned data business, with large proportion of its revenues still coming from news and print business. If this is your idea of a good employer, they provide a lot of job stability (with some recent exceptions), nice offices, stress-free (albeit not always objectively good) benefits and a recognisable name on your CV. If you stay for a while, they will promote you into various job titles which will... sound good at dinner parties. If you get a good sales patch you will hit consistent 100% every year. You still won't earn as much as elsewhere, but you will probably get more job satisfaction and sense of achievement that way. I don't know much about the life outside of sales, but it looks like people stay for a while and are generally happy, but all in all slightly underpaid. This is the kind of company that will really take care of you if you happen to get a long-term sickness or other unfortunate life events. There are some amazing redundancy packages to be had too. Additionally, there seems to be less politics than in other large organisations I worked at.

    Cons

    The data business is shrinking or is at least set to plateau. Anybody not living in a cave can see that. The business has been trying to go into software but boy they don't know how to do it, and it's a consistent shitshow with poor product, poor sales staff, poor remuneration, bizarre management, slow R&D and completely wrong culture. There are a couple of acquisitions that do alright, but only by virtue of... being kept separate. People tend to either leave relatively quickly due to non-fitting culture, or stay for decades due to stress-free life and benefits, that eventually makes them unemployable elsewhere and in turn makes them stay longer. This does mean that the average tenure at TR is through the roof though. Benefits can also be non-cost effective, if you bother shopping for those elsewhere - often even your tax will outweigh the full price directly from provider (as it often is with other large employers). They are convenient though and lots of people use them.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of hiring consultancies that will just point at obvious business efficiencies at the micro-level, re-think the business as a whole, figure out where you are going, please for the love of God communicate it, and ask that industry specialist consultancy to help (which will probably be a lot cheaper that way too). Acquire more and build less. Question the added value of directors and heads of. Overall, be more... dynamic, and not just with flexible desks and cafeteria-plan benefits.

    Pros

    Great brand, great people to work with, generally a can-do attitude and very supportive management

    Slow to move as decision making often left to Senior Management, or rather Senior Management doesn't always let Middle/Junior Managers make decisions

    Advice to Management

    Empower the people and let them do what needs to be done, particularly in areas such as product development and integration of the products acquired in the market
