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

    Pros

    - Culture (Welcoming, Flexible, Value-Driven)
     - Collaborative Atmosphere - people value your feedback/input at all levels of the organization
     - Employee Appreciation - TR truly values their employees (Employee Picnics, Continuous Education/Training, Career Development, Maternity Leave Policy (AMAZING!!!), and the overall Culture makes you feel appreciated and happy to be apart of this wonderful company.
     - Campus - this building and the campus is beautiful!! I have yet to walk around and explore.
     - Commute - my commute is so much better now. Makes a huge difference in my stress level not having to sit in traffic for hours!
     - Work/Family Balance - This company truly "Gets It" when it comes to balance with family and work. This is so important for your well being and state of mind.

    Cons

    - Communication - sometime with a company this big, it's hard to keep up with what's going on. The notifications are nice, but the come in all sort of directions and it can be a little overwhelming.
     - Company Structure - I know this is in the works - but it's challenging to know who does what and where! I've only been here a year, so I'm still learning the ropes around here :-)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!! This is an amazing company and I'm proud to be a part of it! :-)

    Pros

    Nice people, diverse business and a great work life balance. I hear that parental leave is one of the best in the industry and i know that bonuses are good.

    Cons

    Employees tend to focus on avoiding ownership of new tasks and responsibility for completed ones. This stems from top down and from front to back office. Despite the recent transaction & reorganisation there have been no reassurances by management - with the result that most talented staff across the business are searching out other jobs. This avoids the need for redundancy but to manage this via attrition of existing staff means that the brightest & best leave for new jobs and those who are happy doing their job but no more remain.. making the company increasingly less and less dynamic and responsive to customer needs

    Advice to Management

    Buck up

    Wonderful flexibility and a great culture. Perfect if you need a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Job security hasn't been the greatest in recent years.

    Slow progression.

    Salaries are quite stingy compared to the market rate.

    Advice to Management

    Stop letting all your good people go.

    Pros

    Flexible working
    Great teams to work with
    Pay ok
    Good benefits

    Cons

    Senior management poor. In the 10 years I've worked there, it has been restructure after restructure. Musical chairs at the top and a series of firings most years to bolster the share price. Gradually selling off parts of the company (Science division & Financial/Risk) which has halved its size. This course is not sustainable, but management will turn up to town halls convinced of their genius. No ones listens to troops on the ground. Its about budgets. We are supposed to be getting closer to the customer but there aren't enough people left to deliver viable products customers want. So, so sad - moral is on the floor. Some fantastic, talented low level employees doing outstanding work, let down from above.

    Advice to Management

    Work out a long term strategy by engaging with employees who do the actual work. Resource teams better. Invest in proper training.

    Pros

    The smaller teams of journalists are level headed, humble and easy to work with.

    Cons

    Awful senior management team. Lots of Town Hall events where someone high up and hugely pretentious will fly over and expect you to stay engaged and smile as they recount tales of walking in upper west Manhattan and chatting to heads of big banks in first class lounges, whilst subsequently telling you there are going to be job cuts... Glad I got out of the toxic environment.

    Advice to Management

    Work on having better peopme skills and get rid of the fake town hall approach.
