"I saw a lot of bad management and constant org changes."
What do you like about working at Thomson Reuters?
"The office was modern, equipment new, coworkers were reasonably friendly, and there was a dress code but nothing stifling."
Do you have any tips for others interviewing with this company?
"Avoid the technology and markets side. The journalism (news) division may be better. The legal information operations are also sounder, but pay is low from what I hear."
What don't you like about working at Thomson Reuters?
"Incessant organizational changes, managers changing positions, and being let go, at rates I have never seen anywhere. My entire line from my boss to the CEO (that's five levels) departed within one year. Many jobs have been off-shored, and even off-shore jobs are subject to be off-shored further to an even cheaper locale. I saw tremendous destruction of knowledge about the company's systems in exchange for salary cost savings. The results have been bad; the flagship Eikon product developed in Thailand has been so buggy and slow it cost the CEO his job."
What suggestions do you have for management?
"I would have said fire them all, but they have been. Currently there is an absence of good technology people in top posts. The company has no insight into technology development, yet this is a key driver for the success of the markets part of the company. Bloomberg is doing it much better. Also, I'd tell them to stop the reorg every quarter culture (this is still going on). They are substituting reorgs for the real work of managing the company. It's bad for morale and it's hard for people to trust the longevity of any initiative, so nobody feels like a real stakeholder in them. Instead, any sane employee is just looking out for himself in the short term."
