How is the reorg impacting talent recruiting efforts and the talent pipeline? Heard that offers were rescinded to a new crop of grads but it may just be a rumor. Does anyone know?

My bet is that legal will be sold in 2020. Streamline costs and appear to be more profitable in 2019 and sell in 2020. Someone posted below on another thread and it’s the most logical post I’ve seen on this site. “Thomson Reuters Legal (TRL) is now... read more
On the Hub, I’ve seen the “leads” post that they are “so excited” about TR after the reorg is complete or something to that effect. Why are they so excited? Because they know their jobs are safe?
Don’t feel safe just yet. There are still cuts to be made.
And they layoff to keep it that way. Thomson family still one of the richest in Canada. Strange that Reuters limited the reporting of the Thomson Reuters mass layoffs. Instead, Reuters was busy coverung an Apple supplier’s limited guidance... read more

For those of you in Ann Arbor, what’s been happening there? There’s a thread on Carrollton and the changes there. I’ve worked with several people in Ann Arbor - can we get a status update?
What would be the best way to request to be laid off...or isn’t there one?
I see this happening more and more. The company no longer cares about quality. No matter how many years of experience you have that insures you'd do your job better than somebody right out of school, you are not safe. The only thing that matters is... read more

Rochester is about 500 workers. Layoffs begin in 90 days and extend into spring of next year. Many won't depart until late March 2019. They have put the office space up for sale. The layoffs are staggered because of the many thousands of workers... read more
