    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Respect for the individual, challenging multinational environment.

    Cons

    Too many people with the old Reuters culture for the good and for the bad. Deadlines and deliverables not respected and no consequences for bad performance.

    Advice to Management

    In the new world more accountability will be mandatory and fresh talent should be kept and brought in to the company to enable success.

    No opinion of CEO

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

    Pros

    Prestige of the company name, good salary package and insurance plan, days of leave per year, appreciation for work

    Cons

    Only care about work. You can die and the same day they will talk about who your replacement should be.
    Workload is HUGE and it will increase each year.
    Salary increase is only based upon performance rating and is a percentage of basic salary (0-5%). So if you are doing the same job for 10 years, do not expect a good increase. Only way is to change roles within the company (if you can manage that!) or by leaving the company altogether.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    The culture in the company is what makes this place fantastic, it fosters growth mindset and helps people with their career development...even help shift streams. Also the team mindset is great although like in most companies there are pockets where this doesn't work. Everyone's work life balance is respected.

    Cons

    Just as in many companies there are politics at high level. Sr. level promotions are done with least transparency.

    Advice to Management

    Provide clarity on hiring decisions.
