Poor job security
Senior Legal Editor (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW27 March 2019
The constant job cutting is wearing and depressing. Outsourcing to the Phillipines and India is endemic. Constant restructuring with consequent job losses and forcing people to take on the responsibilities of what were previously two separate roles. Very poor salaries – which seems consistent with the publishing industry as a whole. On the plus side, work/life balance is good and there are great people working there.
Pros
Work/life balance, great people, flexible work hours, casual dress
Cons
Poor job security, outsourcing, few promotion opportunities, ridiculous annual Performance Management System.

A beautiful workplace and culture
Business Process Analyst (Former Employee) –  Sydney6 May 2015
My summary says it all. I loved this company and would recommend to anyone who is thinking of applying for a job.

Global travel is embraced as well as autonomy and trust to work from home or report to a manager in another country.

The culture is family, friends, work hard, play hard... a joy to have been a part of.
Pros
travel, autonomy, salary

Freelance Writer
Freelance Writer / Analyst (Current Employee) –  Sydney17 September 2014
I was approached by Thomson Reuters to write some professional compliance articles. The experience has broadened my compliance experience and given me insight into compliance isues outside what I would normally be exposed too.

The work is freelance based and I work from home.

Good people but not so valued by the company
Customer Care Consultant (Former Employee) –  Sydney24 October 2013
The individuals working at Thomson Reuters within my team were wonderful. However, the atmosphere towards management and the company were fairly negative.

Contractors were not made aware whether their contract would be renewed until sometimes the day before their contract was due to run out.

A job packed with challenges, creativity, people and problems, and satisfaction.
New Product Developer (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW13 May 2013
Typical day: read emails and prioritise tasks for the day. Priorities usually arrive via inbox that morning, ranging from urgent queries from sales teams regarding various new products, urgent marketing tasks, responding to queries from editors, sorting out contract issues, or responding to overnight emails with attached tasks from manager. Always monitoring political and legislative developments, and competitor activity, and discussing potential new product opportunities with team. Attending conferences, establishing relationships with various external bodies and potential customers, presenting product briefings to sales teams, writing and presenting business cases for the business are just a few of the things that may occur during the day.
What you learned: how to clearly establish and communicate parameters around projects. How to prioritise. How to manage up. How to collaborate with stakeholders. How to communicate clearly. How to manage stress, mine and my co-workers.
Management: an almost total absence of people management in workplace, with short-term business strategy at the top.
Co-workers: immediate co-workers are exceptional people, highly intelligent, sensitive and effective in their jobs.
Hardest part of job: lack of leadership and interest in people within management. Seriously under-resourced. The need to compete for resources. Short-term business goals and decisions made an executive team that does not understand the nature of the business.
Most enjoyable part of job: opportunity to work with a wide variety of people in and out of the business,
  more... meeting market needs, the process of creating new publications from start to finish, and the sheer variety of the job. And working with fabulous co-workers.  less
Pros
Flexibility, challenging and stimulating work, opportunity to work with a wide range of internal and external groups
Cons
Lack of leadership in management, lack of support for staff in distress, silo culture
