Business Analyst - Process Improvement (Former Employee) – Eagan, MN – December 4, 2017
Management is only achieved by those that play politics. Most managers throw you under a bus, but there are a couple good managers. Most of thomson sends upper management to nyc for nonsense meetings and bleeds the education budget. Anyone willing to share skills or want to implement new techniques are pushed out of groups. It is a good place for work life balance if you aren't in technology support, and if you aren't in sales they let you work from home.
Work from home, work life balance
Low priority for education, management is knowledgable
IT Manager (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 29, 2017
Frequent reorgs and strategy changes.Friendly and easygoing staff and management. Possible to work from home if your job function allows it. Tough to progress your career if you are located in non-strategic location.
Senior Sourcing Analyst (Former Employee) – Boston, MA – November 26, 2017
Although the company has achieved some success as evidenced by its size, it acquired too many companies in nonessential business areas simply to show revenue growth. It became unwieldy. It still seems to want to move in too many directions at once.
Independent Contractor (Former Employee) – Hauppauge, NY – November 16, 2017
This was a place where I was just assigned tickets and allowed to go out and close them as I saw fit, I would take a bunch of tickets in the morning, and if I could close them all in time, I would come back and close a few more before time to go home, and they even gave me special stuff to do every now and then, I got to work in the labs. Very cool place to work
Manager of Cloud Operations (Current Employee) – Lake Oswego, OR – November 14, 2017
This organization is very encouraging to the employees and fosters a culture of consideration and thoughtfulness. Their dedication to that culture is evident and they are always encouraging those values of mindfulness in every activity. This is a place where you can grow and contribute in significant ways.
Thomson Reuters was attempting to capture the small and medium business space having made huge strides in the Enterprise space. They laid off developers and we were asked to keep customers in the sales cycle to wait for the developers to certify the connectors to our software. You cannot conduct business in this manner in an already competitive environment.
It is very hard to move up in this company and employees are not compensated very well. This leads to high turnover rates among teams. There is a good work-life balance, which is what attracts a lot of people.
Positive place to work with many opportunities to advance.
Tax Specialist (Current Employee) – Ann Arbor, MI – November 6, 2017
Everyday I am assigned a different task. I work on that task all day. If I get finished before the end of the day I check with my other co-workers to see if they need any help. Every Quarter things pick-up and we become very busy.
Global Sourcing Operations, Program Specialist (Current Employee) – Stamford, CT – November 6, 2017
I have worked for Thomson Reuters for 5 years and started here as an intern. My team managing our Card Program is great and very easy to work with. I was able to expand my role over the years to make it more strategic and add more value to the company.
It was a challenge to get a pay increase and move up in the company but that was more of a factor of having an operations role which was not consisted strategic.
member (Former Employee) – Paris – November 6, 2017
My typical day would consist of meeting my mentor in his office. He would give me a task. The internship was mostly about how they gather News through research, interviewing people, and going to events such as the Paris Olympics 2024 Conference. Then, I would have to write an article about the subject he gives me. He would correct me, teach me how to cite sources correctly. The most enjoyable part of the job was meeting new people at lunch, being surrounded by television sets broadcasting live news. I also loved the outdoor tasks such as interviewing Uber drivers on strike in Paris. I learned how to listen to both sides of an argument.
