Support Analyst (Former Employee) – Albuquerque, NM – February 4, 2017
The work environment is supportive, but you are overloaded with work. It is expected you stay to get your work completed to avoid getting behind. The work/life balance doesn't seem to be a priority, although you do get plenty of vacation time. You may have to work on days off to catch up on work. It is a lax environment, but it can get stressful with the expectations and upset clients. I do like the recognition and appreciation because management knows it is a hard job. I don't like all of the junk food everywhere. It doesn't seem like health is much of the culture or priority.
Free coffee, recognition, celebrations with free food
May have to skip breaks, lunches, and stay late to catch up on work
Thomson Reuters has grown tremendously since I joined the team nearly 10 years ago and the small company feeling has ebbed more each year since it was taken over by this global corporation. They offer great benefits, competitive pay and the people you work with are intelligent and outgoing, but the stress in the building is palpable most days, thus the rate of attrition is pretty high among new hires.
Goog benefits, great co-workers, ok pay
Upper management holds no loyalty to non-management personnel, stressful environment
Order Management Specialist (Former Employee) – St. Louis, MO – February 23, 2017
Thomson Reuters overall is a good company to work for. They strive to be competitive within the Financial Industry. Some of the upper management may be a little out of touch regarding day to day activities in some departments. They currently use an ordering/asset system that needs to be upgraded or replaced because a lot of time is spent sitting doing nothing because the system is so slow.
Work from home options are available in some departments.
Systems need to be upgraded for better efficient use of time.
There are companies that care about their employees. This one used to, now it's all about the money. It started 2 years ago with major layoffs, then the conversion of outsourcing began. Employees were either let go, or converted to contractors. Part-time contractors were limited to 35 hours a week, with no vacation or benefits. Those who were fortunate enough to be full-time contractors found their pay reduced, and their heath benefits go up 35%. Would not recommend this company to my worse enemy!
Senior Credit Manager (Current Employee) – New York, NY – January 2, 2017
Taking pride in knowing you made a difference, Helped someone with a problem and bringing it to a resolution... Work with outsource team in applying all payments to respective invoices and account. Researching any payments that failed to properly identify invoice, and correctly identifying correct account or parent partner. Refunding any erroneous payments or credits to clients. Work with Credit card partner to ensure we were in full compliance and posting payments to correct invoice.
Great work environment.
Cost cuts hurting the customer experience sector of company
Account Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – December 26, 2016
The organization was extremely bureaucratic, and challenging to move within the company to a different role to expand your horizons and skill set. Some colleagues were genuine, knowledgeable, helpful resources that collaborate on projects/deals, but many others were just floating by on cruise control, working the system.
benefits, location of office, commission plan
management team, lack of effective communication, difficult to move roles internally
Great place to work with job security and enforced work/life balance
DIGITAL MARKETING INTERN (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – November 15, 2016
Working here opens the doors to so many opportunities. Their training for interns puts more emphasis on preparing you for the future you desire than a future with the company, and the VP of Customer Operations takes the time to learn everybody's names and get to know you pretty well.
Strong emphasis on work/life balance at this company. They ask that you don't take your work home with you, and they are heavy on the coffee breaks.
Overall great place to work!
Caring management, fair benefits, opportunities for growth
My team was supportive and everyone was willing to pitch in to meet deadlines.
Senior Software Engineer (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 2, 2016
Most team members worked remotely so we had weekly conference calls to provide progress and updates on progress. We had the chance to work independently as well as collaboratively. My co-workers were the greatest--very supportive and willing to help out to meet deadlines if necessary. My boss held monthly information meetings to help us learn new skills that would enhance our job performance.
Sr. Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Philadelphia, PA – October 28, 2016
TR is constantly changing management hierarchy which became a bit tedious and confusing. As with large companies of this nature, the bottom line is saved for the stockholders. Massive layoffs were expected on a bi-annual basis with very little domestic back-filling. Most of the technical development was moved to a consulting firm in India which had competing objectives with TR and made the job more difficult than it should have been.
large network with opportunity to learn many skills.
Project Delivery Manager & Technical Lead (Former Employee) – Minnesota – November 1, 2016
Thomson Reuters is a top-ranking information services company with over 50,000 employees. Senior Management did not hesitate to lay off as many people as they possibly could, but they never gave up on their bonuses. Though, my working experience was great, but the phase was pretty rough. I really enjoyed the technical aspect of the project, and don't regret the opportunity.
Technology Director (Current Employee) – New York, NY – November 30, 2016
Enjoyable place to work. Would like to see more stability and less change. Micromanagement is everywhere and the next change is always just around the corner. It is hard to be effective in an environment where you are always looking over your shoulder.
Benefits (health isn't as good, near as good as it used to be)
Account Manager, Tax & Accounting (Current Employee) – USA – October 25, 2016
Great products, good company, pretty tough when it comes to work life balance. I have worked here for over 3 years and almost every week I work 70 hours or more. It's very tough to take a vacation and succeed. If you are single and/or don't have a life, it's great because you can make a lot of money. If you have a family and you are dedicated to your family, it can be really rough. The health care benefits are pretty expensive.
Business Analyst (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – October 18, 2016
The department I worked in was new, having recently developed a data transfer device that was milliseconds faster than the one currently used. Therefore there was a rush to include all the stock exchanges. The learning curve was steep and training systems were not in place, so I found the job challenging but exciting. A typical day was simply going in and picking up where I left off the day before. I learned that I could work independently and could be a leader.
Pride in working for a company of Reuters' stature
Frustration of deadlines that were sometimes very challenging
Overall, company was well-balanced and fun to work for. Pay was decent, benefits were alright. Overall, industry is tough on them right now, but they are keeping it in perspective. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a good place to go to.
Order Management Specialist (Former Employee) – Creve Coeur, MO – January 22, 2017
Unfortunately, although this job paid well, the company was unorganized. The new employees weren't given a logon ID for about the first month. We had to read about the company and the procedures the entire first month. This was hard to understand not knowing anything about the job.
Excellent growth work life balance.Ability to move laterally throughout the organization. Good pay and benefits. Great culture at the workplace, wonderful employees and management. Appreciation for the hard work put in motivates to achieve higher.
