    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Culture (Welcoming, Flexible, Value-Driven)
     - Collaborative Atmosphere - people value your feedback/input at all levels of the organization
     - Employee Appreciation - TR truly values their employees (Employee Picnics, Continuous Education/Training, Career Development, Maternity Leave Policy (AMAZING!!!), and the overall Culture makes you feel appreciated and happy to be apart of this wonderful company.
     - Campus - this building and the campus is beautiful!! I have yet to walk around and explore.
     - Commute - my commute is so much better now. Makes a huge difference in my stress level not having to sit in traffic for hours!
     - Work/Family Balance - This company truly "Gets It" when it comes to balance with family and work. This is so important for your well being and state of mind.

    Cons

    - Communication - sometime with a company this big, it's hard to keep up with what's going on. The notifications are nice, but the come in all sort of directions and it can be a little overwhelming.
     - Company Structure - I know this is in the works - but it's challenging to know who does what and where! I've only been here a year, so I'm still learning the ropes around here :-)

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work!!! This is an amazing company and I'm proud to be a part of it! :-)

    Pros

    Good people to work with, good benefits, pension and healthcare.

    Cons

    People have become unhappy in their jobs, mainly due to the amount of changes to the organisation, and it changes whenever there is a change in senior management as they bring their idea's to the front and this changes yearly at least. There is too much emphasis placed on metrics and statistics instead of letting staff do their jobs to the best of their ability. A lot of out-sourcing and moving jobs to locations where workforce is cheaper, but I've seen firsthand how bad this cheaper workforce is.

    Advice to Management

    Walk in the shoes of some of the staff lower down the chain, experience how hard implementing the changes are and talk to people near the bottom of the scale to get a real view of what people are thinking.
