    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time

    Pros

    The work atmosphere is cooperative rather than competitive. Everyone works as a team to accomplish tasks and really cares about providing the best service to customers.

    Cons

    Did not find any cons, except that my work involved shift work and it can be tough to work overnight. But most jobs at Thompson Reuters do not have that requirement.

    I worked at Thomson Reuters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It's a large company, so there are definitely some well intentioned and bright folks. Market competitive compensation.

    Cons

    Read the news. Many of the company decisions and actions have tremendous negative impact to their employees but they are outweighed by benefits to shareholders and management. There's a lot of both self-inflicted and employee-inflicted churn.

    Site reliability engineering culture is a joke. Sounds great but there's no way to practice it under poor management. Be prepared to watch your technical skills wilt.

    Advice to Management

    It's pretty obvious you don't care about change, so why not be honest with candidates so they know what they're getting into?

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Collaborative environment where people really care about what they do for customers and contributing to society. Employee and customer engagement are priorities, as is social responsibility. Tremendous investment in Canada, technology, top quality reliable and accurate information serving professionals who depend on it to make important decisions - Legal, Tax, Banking and news. I'm very proud to work at a company that matters.

    Cons

    The company can be complex to navigate as it was built through acquisition. It takes work and patience to get things done as we tend to be very consultative internally which sometimes results in moving slowly.

    Advice to Management

    The more time you can spend with your people, below C-level, and customers the better. The org has to be flatter so it can move faster and be as connected as possible to our employees and customers.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Company has good initiatives to look put for the employee. Depends on the team you’re in you might actually be able to enjoy them

    Cons

    Big difference between real life and what’s on paper. HR initiatives seem like a fairy tale. Horrible work environment. Vertical mentality. High Management has a Deity complex. Horribly low salary and terribly high expectations.

    Advice to Management

    Foster growth amongst your employees. Not senseless competition and individualism you believe boosts performance.

    Pros

    Great products to sell, captive market, some great people, can work from home or the Scarborough or downtown Toronto offices

    Cons

    Culture. Leadership doesn't seem aligned and is making desperate decisions in order to try and close deals, and risking relationships with other clients along the way (it's a very small market)

    They expect way too much help for very simple tasks anyone should know how to do.
