CARM PLCM (Former Employee), New York, NY – January 5, 2015
Cons: physical distance between my team members and me
my typical day entails checking my email inbox this thing in the morning in order to be prepare for my day plus to attend to any issue that might have arise. I have learned a great deal from each of my positions within Thomson Reuters from being proactive to dedicated team member.
Pros: 3 and 4 day weekends because of the 12 hour shifts.
Cons: lack of management. weekend / night work.
I enjoy the work I do at MarkMonitor (Thomson Reuters) but there is no room for growth in the company. I have learned a lot about anti fraud in my years with the company. The management could be a lot more involved. The hardest part of the job was getting used to working 12 hour shifts, and how to properly use some of the tools. The most enjoyable part of the job was knowing the work I am doing is keeping people's / bank's money safe.
Systems Administrator - Contractor (Current Employee), New York, NY – December 26, 2014
Diversified, people are friendly, large environment, great company to work for - large company benefits, good work life balance (As I know from my coworkers who are employees). Lots of opportunities for learning. I don't know too much about this company yet since I only work there as a contractor for a few months.
Senior Director Organization Readiness (Current Employee), Minneapolis, MN – December 18, 2014
There are many change initiatives going on within this business that has grown through acquisition. The tenure of employees is very long which brings with it some challenges of it's own in terms of openness to change. Newer employees need to really find their own way in this organization and it's not an easy one to navigate. The people are smart, well educated and hard working.
Lead Process Analyst (Former Employee), Chicago, IL – December 5, 2014
Huge opportunities for hard working individuals, load of potential for advancement. Opportunities to travel as there are office all over the world. I was fortunate enough to have had the chance to work in London for many years.
Technical Development Specialist 4 (Former Employee), St. Louis, MO – December 2, 2014
Pros: flexible work schedule with option to work from home.
Cons: physicall distant management is not integrated well with local team.
You know that your efforts are visible to the customer. This provides impetus to do good work on their behalf. TR provides the technical resources needed to get the job done but management needs some improvement in developing trust. Most enjoyable was helping customers get the trading information they needed in time to use it.
Account Executive (Former Employee), Eagan, MN – December 2, 2014
Cons: staff and managment were unprofessional
At the time I was there the sales management team was a joke. Very unprofessional and lots of unethical sales practices being performed. I have been informed that they cleaned house on the sales consultants were cheating the system.
Sales Analyst (Current Employee), Valhalla, NY – December 1, 2014
Pros: ability to work from home, good benefits, employee discount program
Cons: no flexibility, micro managing
I work in a not so great department. This has soured my to the company in general. I would recommend the company to a friend, just not the department I currently work in. I learned that everything must be put in writing.
COORDINATOR (Former Employee), New York, NY – November 23, 2014
TR was a good name on the resume and I learned a lot as my first job here. Overall the company is a bit of a mess as they keep acquiring companies and launching new products but don't know where to place those companies within TR or advance the products to make them better and stay in the marketplace.
Researcher (Current Employee), Washington, DC – November 12, 2014
Cons: understaffed and large workload
My day starts off organizing and reviewing work from the previous day to make sure information is accurate. I spend a lot of time reading, proof reading case files for specific documents for identification purposes. I've learned to be more precise in terms of sharing information with my team members and became a stronger communicator in the process. The hardest part of the job is the workload and deadlines but that challenge of making me more organized has become invaluable. I enjoy the challenges of organizing and processing information to serve a purpose bigger than myself.
