What you learned
Training Specialist (Current Employee) –  Carrollton, TXJanuary 31, 2016
Overall Thomson is a good company. If you are lucky enough to get into a great group and a great manager, you will find yourself staying in the same group forever. Which could be good and bad. By staying in the same group forever, then you never acquire new skills, thus you become less markable.
Pros
Almost Lay-Off Free
Cons
Pay Scale could be better.

Legal Research Associate (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJanuary 29, 2016
Researchers and managers are very helpful with any questions, as there is a lot to learn the first few months on the job. The workload is manageable and supervisors are very understanding of creating a balance. Many of the research associates are recent college graduates who hope to one day pursue careers in law, business, recruiting, and other various fields. Many of the skills acquired at Thomson Reuters are ones that will be useful tools in the future.

Downhill since the Reuters merger
Editorial Associate (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MNJanuary 27, 2016
Thomson Reuters has been heavily outsourcing in recent years, putting pressure on existing staff. There are some nice perks, such as a fitness room downstairs, and a Caribou Coffee inside the building, but staff is pressured not to use it because of their workload. That said, some departments are better than others. It just boils down to whether or not your department is the cash cow at the moment. The co-workers are generally the best part of TR.
Pros
Nice little perks - there's basically a city inside a building
Cons
Sub-average salary, outsourcing issues

More with less corporate environment
Freelance Camera Operator/Studio Tech (Current Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 27, 2016
Thomson Reuters is a good company. Although the staff and contractors seem to be a last priority. The media produced and distributed expectingly comes before everything. Positions are cut to save money and jobs and tasks are expected to be done with less resources.

It's a great place to work with tons of perks for employees. A lot of positions also allow for working remotely. The management needs to focus more on improving transparency.

Associate Project Manager (Current Employee) –  Eagan, MNJanuary 26, 2016
Good starting point for getting into the organization, get a good view of some of the products and services TR offers. Difficult to move up very far in the organization without a law degree or legal world experience.
Pros

Whatever happened to this company?
Business Development/Sales (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 12, 2016
When I first joined many moons ago there was a common goal of getting the job done and maintaining a desirable work/life balance.

Fast forward to a very poorly executed merger(Thomson bought Reuters at some ludicrous multiple) and it didn't take long afterward for the wheels to come off the truck.

Fear, do whatever Bloomberg & Factset are doing(that is, besides offer a high quality product..lol) and throw out the old and bring in the "new".

That is except for management where the mantra is "keep the old guard around who basically know nothing about the financial markets but excel at the all important game of office politics."

All, and I mean all, promotions and advancement are based around the hiring party feeling comfortable that you have their "back". In other words, those that are "leading" this once great company place having pawns around them as more important than someone who might ruffle feathers for the betterment of the overall company.

There's no "this is better for the company" attitude at TR. It's all about infighting and sniping behind each others backs so as to hopefully avoiding the fate bestowed on the many thousands recently let go in the past few years.

Very unfortunate as this used to be a great place to work..both compensation and benefits offered have declined greatly in the past number of years.
Pros
Nice building, holiday benefit is still decent(although was much, much better), smart people can still be found
Cons
Insecure leadership, products that aren't consistent, a business and compensation structure that changes regularly, a let's do whatever Bloomberg is doing and hire anyone that they discard mentiality
