In case both federal jobs fall through, I applied for a six-month position as a legal editor with Thomson Reuters. Has anyone worked for the company? Is it hell, or suitable environment? It wouldn't be my first choice, but at least it's somewhat stable as far as temporary positions go.

I had a friend who worked on the U.K. side (not sure what it is called there) for six months and he did not mind it. The pay was low but it tided him over until he could find something better.

I've worked on projects at Thomson Reuters, as well as Pangea3 after TR acquired them. Environment depends on the project. Money sucks for projects at TR. Pangea3 doc-review projects pay market or slightly above, if you do foreign language. P3's Dallas office is a pleasant place to work.

I used to work for TR for nearly 10 years. Some things I liked and some things I didn't like. It was much better before when it was just West Publishing before it got bought out by Thomson and then the Thomson-Reuters merger. The Opperman family really cared about employees but not so much for the big corporate ownership. It's been several years since I left. I still have an old pension with them. I did get one week off for paid leave when my wife had a baby. Annual bonuses and pay increases are low. Health insurance was okay. You can read some reviews on glassdoor. More jobs are being sent to India these days.

Thank you. It is appreciated. I hopefully won't have to go the full six months, and I am picked up for something permanent.

Worked in Eagan MN. Most of these jobs are contractors, but you do get a W2. Projects can last a year or more but they usually end 25% earlier than thought.

Eagan campus is very nice and sort of like a city in a building. Laid back. Company intranet was interesting.

The big drag is the legal editor jobs are very tedious and your boss is metric-driven. You will get sick of it at times.

Also the annual November layoffs have become infamous throughout the company and the Twin Cities in general.

I did 2 interviews for FT jobs while I was a contractor but got nothing and ended up in the bottom level of crap law, where I sit today.

Its a great campus though, can't stress that enough.
