"It's a great organization as people are polite and most are willing to share their knowledge. There are definitely pockets of the organization that play politics to the max. Most managers allow you to set your "in office / work" hours with the expectation you will get your work done and not be micromanaged in that regard. Definitely open to remote work when necessary."

"Thomson Reuters is a unique business, in that they have aquired several businesses over the years, making it exceptionally more difficult to create a desired culture in a highly matrixed and global organization. However, the idea the leaders are making moves, while also growing themselves, says a lot about the people and the type of company they are [and who they want to be]"
"Thomson Reuters places a lot of trust in its employees. I feel that my manager respects my intelligence and my input. I am never disregarded, talked over, or controlled. I have a lot of agency. I have a lot of freedom. I feel strongly committed to my team. I believe that I make a difference. As a result, I want to help the company be even more successful than it already is. I have never felt personally invested in the success of my employer before, but the way that TR treats me (and I happen to be a woman), gives me this sense of dedication, which is very fulfilling. I also appreciate that the senior women in the company do NOT have that demoralizing 'chip-on-my-shoulder' embittered quality that I have encountered from so many higher-level women during my career as a young professional. (They had it hard it must be hard for me.) Instead I feel inspired and mentored. A+ all the way."

Editorial in particular, has male-dominated management culture that makes it difficult to progress for many women"
"Thomson Reuters has made a pledge to get more women into executive roles, they support many women sponsored events and it makes me excited as a women and mother to a girl to see this progress. Thanks TR!"
"There are a lot of strong, intelligent women working within Thomson Reuters at all levels and across all geographies; however, at the highest levels (Board, ExCom) it is still dominantly white-male.

"
"TR has made it a priority to promote women in Technology from the upper echelons of leadership. They've also implemented balanced and generous parental leave for women AND MEN which I think is just amazing. I'm also super proud to work for the company that includes Reuters news agency - one of the best, least biased and most respected news agencies in the world.

It now offers up to a total of 24 months off, up to 18 paid (12 paid + 6 temporary disability). The 12 week paid parental leave is gender neutral. They also offer great medical benefits, including fertility coverage (as of 2017, up to $10k). They also offer adoption assistance (as of 2017, up to $5k). In addition to these fantastic benefits, the CEO has made a public commitment to increase the number of women in high-level leadership positions to 40% by 2020 (and offers quarterly updates on the progress of this goal)."

"Thomson Reuters is a huge organization with a history of growing through acquisitions. My personal experience has been of an organization that values diversity and makes an effort to recruit and retain women, especially minority women. There are people in my department who have lived on every continent except Antarctica (and maybe Austrilia). Flexibility and work-life balance here are good, benefits are decent though not as good as they used to be (I've been here more than 10 years), but salary here is not up to par. I enjoy the challenges of the work that I do, and the people I work with, but looking at where my salary falls on Glassdoor and similar sites, compared to others with my experience, is depressing. The annual review and performance increase process implicitly penalizes those who started with a lower salary, since it's percentage based."
