Anonymous Employee in New York, NY (US)
Accepted Offer
Neutral Experience
Difficult Interview

Application

I applied online. The process took 6 weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY (US)) in February 2010.

Interview

Went through several round of interviews and also performed a demonstration of the product in a classroom setting with several participants that included sales, VP's, Product Owners. The entire process really dragged on. They did finally make an offer, but i had to keep pushing and reaching out to get them to make an offer.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY (US)) in November 2015.

    Interview

    I applied in October and had my second round early November. It is now March and I still haven't heard back regarding my status. I contacted my recruiter several times through emails and calls but haven't been able to reach him. This whole process is very frustrating. I don't know whether to keep on waiting or to accept that no reply is an automatic rejection.

    I applied online. The process took 5+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in September 2015.

    Interview

    Tedious interview process- fill out the application, and then they send you a link to enter more information and do an assessment. You wait for the assessment results, and then they send you a link for the online interview which is basically recording your answers, its not a person to person type interview. After that it's a lot of waiting, before you get a response

    Client Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Boston, MA (US)
    Accepted Offer
    Neutral Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (Boston, MA (US)) in May 2013.

    Interview

    First step was phone interview with 2 managers (difficult for 3 people via phone.) Next step was a series of in person interviews (3 total) with sales managers in local offices. Relaxed overall and friendly people, mostly want to talk about themselves - cater to egos! Primarily will be about fit, looking for a friendly and outgoing (fun) personality and willingness to learn more than particular experience. Any background in finance/sales and interest both is the basic requirement. Not a ton of responsiveness.

    Interview Questions

    • No specific questions other than info on your background and looking for a willingness to learn.   Answer Question

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters in July 2017.

    Interview

    After submitting my resume online, I received a call for a phone interview. The phone interview was simple, just walking the interviewer through my resume and work experience.

    I was invited to an in-person interview and instructed to put together a presentation on a topic of my choice. I had about a week's notice to put together the presentation. At the interview, I gave my presentation in front of four interviewers. After the presentation, the interviewers asked questions related to the presentation and, after that, questions related to the job as a whole. All the questions were reasonable and typical interview questions related to my work experience and career goals. I also had the opportunity to ask a lot of my own questions and learn about the position and the firm. It was very laid-back and informative, almost more of a conversation than an interview.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 4+ months. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (New York, NY (US)) in February 2017.

    Interview

    A 3 step interview process beginning with an online strengths assessment test where you answered questions based on how you would react/respond in certain situations (mainly in client facing ones). The second step was a pre recorded video interview which was completed in mid December. Heard back about the final round the end of January which is a super day at their NYC office (9am-4pm) mid February. The day is really awesome as you have many opportunities to interact with current employees and let yourself shine in both individual and group activities. Heard back about an offer within a week and a half.

    Client Specialist Interview

    Anonymous Employee in City of London, England (UK)
    Accepted Offer
    Negative Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (City of London, England (UK)) in August 2009.

    Interview

    They will interview at all times even when no positions available - always looking for 'talent' and prone to making mistakes by hiring 'ex-markets' people with no real ability to do the job.

    Interview Questions

    Negotiation

    Slow & drawn out - initial offer was a pittance.

    Negative Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Thomson Reuters (London, England (UK)) in September 2012.

    Interview

    Far too long a process with, in my opinion, mostly pointless questioning and too many people involved trying to show how great they were and how much they knew.
    Puppet master type manager overseeing the whole process and seemingly rewarding her pets with a smile when they did something clever. Very unprofessional & trying far too hard to be like Bloomberg.
    Too much trying to sell the company for what it's not, rather than concentrate on what the job entails - customers being able to use the products with easy and finding the information they want quickly.
    This used to be a great company to work for and was highly respected within the financial community (Reuters).
