"Leadership and executive teams do pay a lot of attention to what employees say and the areas for improvement. They have been heavily investing in improving our culture of diversity and inclusion across the organisation. Personally, I have felt extremely supported throughout the years in developing my skills, advancing my career and creating a fantastic network. Most recently, as a new mom, I have really enjoyed the flexibility to manage things at home but also to enjoy family time. This has been even more important through this COVID-19 crisis."

"There are many opportunities within Thomson Reuters. Some parts of the business are better than others and can come down to specific teams and their culture. It takes some insight to navigate through the politics a times, but you can find a place to call home."

"I've always found Thomson Reuters incredibly supportive. I have very flexible work arrangements that allow me to effectively work, take care of my family and have a life of my own. I have also found them supportive of my career development - I see quite a lot of women in leadership roles, and have been supported immensely with training, role models and encouragement on my own management career path. My only concern is that pay decisions aren't transparent, and I have seen people with similar levels of experience employed into the same role on different salaries. Salary reviews don't really involve the individual employee being reviewed and there is no room for negotiation except when applying for a new role. I don't think I've been good at negotiating salary, and I have only sometimes felt that my manager was negotiating on my behalf. "

"Thomson Reuters has a systemic policy of laying off employees approximately every two years, typically in Q4, in order to keep the books in black. Employees will then be hired back at a lower rate. It is demoralizing. There is also a cap on salary, and a lack of diversity overall. Hours ranged from good to unreasonable, depending on my manager - which changed frequently."

"Where an official policy exists, the company is rigorous about equality, be that gender equality, LGBT inclusion or race. However, many decisions for lower levels of staff are taken unofficially and there are then no checks on the biases of individual decision makers. Pay gap is small; there are plenty of women in C-level posts."

"It is great place for woman. I feel free to be who I am and to talk freely about women topics, like pregnancy and others. And TR has a real concern about my safety and well-being."
"My overall experience working with TR very pleasant . I enjoyed working with people around me. Group which i am part of provide lot of flexibility. Bosses , I worked with really good ,and they motivate and encourage me to progress in my career . Personally, I feel team and Boss you are working really matter. "
"TR is a great place to work - nice benefits, great people, strong product portfolio, satisfying work - however the opportunity for real (upward) growth is missing. There is a lot of encouragement to take on a "gig" to learn about and support another team but that is designed to help with lateral job changes, not upward growth."
"Thomson Reuters has a decent work/life balance. Parental leave benefits are good in the U.S., but they were improved years after I had my children. I have always found that there is a lot of opportunity if you are willing to look for it and work hard. You must be an advocate for yourself."
"If you desire to work for an organization that you will be proud to be apart of, Thomson Reuters is where you want to be. Their commitment to their employees and customers is unmatched. The people that work here are fabulous."
"Your manager and location make a big difference. Some geographies in Asia are a bit more hierarchical and provide less flexibility - even on the same team."
"Based on my experiences, this is a good "starter" company, but go somewhere else for growth (be it via promotion, new job experiences, etc)"
"They are committed to include more diversity in the workplace. They offer special programs catered towards women to help foster growth. I feel there is a lot of measures in place to ensure employees are treated fairly regardless of gender, color, or sexual orientation. "
"I am seeing more and more women in executive positions. Although some managers might treat men and women differently, as a whole the company does not. They are pretty good about letting people work from home depending on their position. I have worked from home for about 10 years now. "

"Always opportunity to grow, flexible schedules to manage home and work life. Surrounded by great talent! "
"I find the atmosphere both challenging (career-wise - always thinking of how we can do things differently and better) and supportive (flexible, lots of opportunity for growth and gaining new experiences)."
"On the sales side, it is still very male driven. However, on the corporate side, the leaders are very supportive of all employees and building professional development where employees want to grow. As a large company, women need to be champions of their own careers - no one will look out for your development but you."
"Thomson Reuters has provided me with many opportunities to learn new things and gain experience in management level roles. I have enjoyed the people I've worked with over the years and have always felt supported by my teammates and my superiors. Most important to me has been the flexibility, whether it be flexible working hours or working from home when needed, which has allowed me to raise 3 beautiful children and manage a fulfilling career at the same time."
"I love working at TR. It's provided me with many opportunities to grow not only in my career but also personally. Just like any big company you're going to find great teams & managers, and poor teams & managers, but I myself have been incredibly fortunate with my experience. "

"Women are truly championed at Thomson Reuters. We are supported by each other, by our teams and by our leadership to develop ourselves personally and professionally. We have business resource groups (BRGs) like [email protected] where I participate in the events to network, learn, and gain mentorship from other women here. We also have SO many resources available for diversity and inclusion which gives an intersectional lens to understand one another and a safe space to be included no matter your race, gender, sexual orientation, etc. You're truly championed here in our culture of inclusivity! "
"Thomson Reuters is a great place to work especially for women. Our culture is diverse and highly inclusive. We promote women empowerment and everyone's treated equally."

"The organization truly respects, values and seeks out diversity (female, ethnic, diversity of thought)"

The benefits are outstanding even for women who have delayed starting a family with resources to help in that area! We have amazing maternity and paternity leave as well. There is also flexibility to work from home in most roles even in a non-Covid environment. There are lots of business resource groups and women networking groups to help support and elevate."

"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.
