    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 5 years

    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...

    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.

    I have been working at Thomson Reuters full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Used to be a phenomenal place to work. Reorg over last 6 months has sapped morale from sales force. I'm a 10+ year vet and was always very pro TR. Lately, just seems like a big cluster F. Long term customer relationships have been severed, every tenured sales rep is basically waiting for a good opportunity to come along to jump.

    Cons

    Increase base salary. Almost comical how low it is is compared to market. Anyone who does interview sees that the standard base for sales is WAY higher than what TR is offering. Definitely not getting good sales talent in the door anymore to replace droves that are leaving. (or will be soon) Seem to randomly assign reps to accounts now. Big part of sales is RELATIONSHIPS BASED. That is all gone now. Reps have no...

    Advice to Management

    Scrap the worst managed re-org plan in history and go back to the previous geographic model. Stop spending hundreds of thousand of dollars on consultants and useless sales training and put that $$ into comp plans. Sales people are the sharpest people in your company. They will maximize their comp plan and the comp plan will directly drive their activity.
