Are there numbers of people that have left? Feels like a revolving door, especially around sales right now. Why is leadership not addressing this?
Yesterday's Corporates Sales Call= Pathetic and Desperate
In my sales career, I have never seen Executives more desperate and weak. The sales pipeline has never been this bad, and the shortcomings of the Leadership Team are more evident than ever. How long can these id--ts without product knowledge keep... — read more
We had someone let go on May 31st (the day before the spinoff of Elite from TR). Presented to the team as “performance” related. But timing is very suspect so wanted to see if any other groups were affected.
What can I do to put myself on the layoff list?
I want out. I also want to be paid to leave because I've earned it after years of mistreatment by this company. There is no guarantee that I'll find my name on the next layoff list, but I would like to at least improve my chances, if at all possible... — read more
I'm completely burnt out
They expect unrealistically too much from us.
The toxicity is unmatched
I didn't realize how bad the work environment was until I was no longer in it. I didn't realize how toxic things were until I read up on the traits of a bad workplace and matched up what was happening at work with the warning traits listed. There was... — read more
No May layoffs
Unless something happens in the next few days, I guess the talk of a May round was not true. I don't know if I'm happy about it or disappointed. I'm currently half-scared of getting laid off but also half-hopeful that I will be cut and that I'll get... — read more
Looking for a new offer
The atmosphere here has become very bad. In fact, I don't think it's ever been worse. On the other hand, I'm so overwhelmed with work that I hardly have time to dedicate myself to looking for a new job as much as I would like. You?
Another $1.5 billion cash LSEG sale...

Hotel cubes only?
AA just announced all hotel cubes for everyone. The germs. The disorder. Making things bad to worse. Any hope? What’s the big plan?
Nobody is hiring
Am I the only one who is unable to find any good opportunities? I keep searching daily but I'm mostly coming up empty. When I do find something I like and go through the entire very lengthy process, I end up finding that their offer is ridiculously... — read more

Well this townhall so far is a lot less exciting since they silenced people from feeling comfortable asking questions. leadership doesn’t want to face the hot seat.
Stock down 5% today...
...time for another round of layoffs?
How long before it’s TR?
IBM is going to pause hiring for jobs that can be done by AI. Could impact 7800 of their workforce. You bet your bottom dollar that TR is looking to do the same So how long before they do... — read more
I felt exactly like a lot of you that are still there. The hardest part was pulling the trigger on a new path. Financially, it was 35k+ more that what I was getting at TR. I could not believe that we were soo underpaid and valued. It’s never too... — read more
Maybe it's too late
I really loved my job here and that's why I delayed leaving, thinking that some improvement must happen here eventually. However, for almost four years I have watched the company go a downward spiral and the expected improvement is not... — read more
There are enough available jobs
Don't believe the false narrative that jobs don't exist. That's just not true. Spend 5 minutes on any recruiting site and you'll see there are a LOT of people hiring right now. It took me all of 2 weeks to find a new job with better pay, benefits... — read more
The Thomson Reuters Tax Pros Guide to Renewals
Here's a guide to ensure retention and renewal: Customers can’t decipher their invoices, so they don’t know what they’re canceling when they cancel. People are afraid of losing content or software and maybe a good price, so they just auto renew... — read more
Is it happening? When?
To anyone still at TR, especially those posting to and checking this forum regularly, please update your resume and start networking. The culture is toxic, the leaders don’t value you, and there is A LOT more money and job satisfaction elsewhere. We... — read more
TR needs to deal with the real problems
Also it needs to deal with these problems in the right way, because now instead of really analyzing issues and trying to fix them, our leadership allows these problems to become bigger while they deal with some minor matters. Just my 2 cents.
New: 2 days in office per week
For BUs that haven’t been going in twice a week - how does this change impact you? By June 1 all locations will have ICs come twice a week, and managers three times a week.
Corporates is Struggling!
Management is now suffering for the cuts they made
Anyone making bets on
whether AG comes back? TBH not witnessed how shes contribute other firing everyone. Also responding with a question when you ask her a valid question. I mean why are you asking me? and go find out and come back and tell me is not coaching.
Wtf is the api sales goal?
I’ve seen the OKR around APi sales. Who is even building APIs? What is the purpose of having this?
Work is slow and I'm worried
The only thing more stressful than being overwhelmed is when your work becomes so slow that you literally have nothing to do. I don't want to lose my job, but I'm very worried. What do the rest of you do in a situation like this?
Got an email from Charlie today saying TR values accessibility and everyone in product has to do accessibility training so we build accessibility into our products. Meanwhile, they took away our budget for accessibility fixes. Cool.
Things are Falling apart
I thought things were bad 10 years ago but its obvious things are failing miserably now. Institutional knowledge is out the door and reaking havoc on those who are left to support it. Problems range from Customer unable to access products to random... — read more
Lack of work
The design org work has slowed down due to lack of organization between design and product partners. Additional work we could help with is held up because other teams don’t have the time or care enough to meet to discuss details. Anyone else notice... — read more
No strategy to achieve targets
There is no vision at the company at all. If you are apart of another company you will clearly see just how much it’s missing here. *If you ask your managers and their managers what their vision and strategy to achieve their targets are, they... — read more
thanks for the depressing pep talk today. your encouragement and intimidation tactics only ensure I'm making the right decision to leave. also no one cares. design tea is a time suck and operations is a pain in the a-s.
Bye bye Elite. Good luck to anyone working there. Any guesses what businesses TR will sell next?
Thomson saved Reuters
You can't be all high and mighty when the truth is that Thomson saved your company. If there wasn't for us, there wouldn't have been Reuters. I thought this was common knowledge and we have moved on from it, but some posts I read here have... — read more

GDC in India
Why TR is expanding activities in GDC India?
where are you? thats right, you fired everyone then took LOA. Now the head of design is going on vacation. and another talent is leaving. i wanted to believe in the dream, but its turned into a nightmare.
Good luck pulling the brand image out of the swirling drain
The user interfaces have eroded to the point now that some products look like a half-baked high school project. Even text on the screen is written with poor English. I can’t fathom customs paying huge sums of money and receiving this sort of product... — read more
