Nice people boring work
Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MO8 March 2019
I recently started with Refinitiv. During my interview we talked about the exciting and interesting new work they were doing. This combined with a good benefits package was enough to seal the deal. But upon starting I discovered this exciting work was 2-3 years in the future and currently all work centered around legacy systems that we need to "keep the lights on". And all of these systems are at least a decade old if not older.
Pros
Nice People, Good Benefits, Relaxed working environment
Cons
Old Tech, Older Staffing

Lots of big ideas for the future
Instructional Designer (Current Employee) –  London13 January 2019
As a new company created from an old, established firm, Refinitiv has lots of big ideas about harnessing AI and bringing the technology revolution to financial information.

It remains to be see if the management will fulfil any of this company's early promises. Morale is low following several waves of redundancies and there doesn't seem to be much evidence of real change at lower levels of management.
Pros
Great people
Cons
Inflexible, hierarchical management culture.

High expectation environment
Analyst (Current Employee) –  St. Louis, MO14 November 2018
There are high expectations here -- which can be understandable due to the nature of the products and the customer base. But the people are high performing and are supported by junior management to meet and exceed those goals.

Good place to work but career advancement is not
Senior Financial Analyst (Current Employee) –  3 Times Square23 October 2018
The overall culture is very good as the people there are good people and there is no culture bias. However, upward mobility is weak. Middle managers would hire externally before looking internally, making it a very frustrating environment.
