    Current Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY (US)
    Current Employee - Project Manager in New York, NY (US)

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

    Pros

    When you're on a hot product, you've got a lot of potential for advancement. If you can make sure you hoard information, you'll find yourself in a position of power. If you're the hot new acquisition, you'll be respected and admired, at least until the next one...

    Cons

    There are seemingly hundreds of layers of management between workers and the CEO. There are so many people in this company that don't seem to have any real function other than smiling and nodding in meetings. SO. MANY. NONTECHNICAL. PEOPLE. IN. TECHNICAL. POSITIONS. The company is great at creating PowerPoints with ambitious objectives but comically bad at actually figuring out how to realize any of those goals. Most of the technology is outdated, and so are the mindsets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Figure out who the real stars are and start trying to retain them; look deeper than just who is taking credit for success and figure out who is doing the work. Stop enacting policies to chase away star performers. Respect your employees. Share information - and not just the fluffy emails that are sent out by management. Acquiring a dozen companies every year is not a technology strategy.

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

    Pros

    Excellent working conditions in terms of flexible work hours, work from home and even work from different cities.

    Cons

    Lots of change internally. Hard to form lasting relationships with stakeholders and management team. Even if you do a great job at something it is likely that the people who you did it for wont be hear in a year. Difficult to forge career progression.
