Years of Experience

For those with five to nine years of experience, average earnings amount to around $82K annually. Workers who have been with the company for more than one year but less than five can make $65K per year on average. The greater proportion of employees (36 percent) report 10-19 years of experience and bring home median pay of about $94K annually.


Software Development Managers rake in the most money, with average earnings of $124K per year; Lead Software Engineers come in second with average earnings amounting to $110K, while Senior Software Engineers and Marketing Managers rank near the top as well (approximately $91K and about $89K, respectively). Software Engineers at Thomson Reuters do not see much in the way of financial compensation and represent one of the lower-paid positions ($72K on average) at the company.


When it comes to location, the highest average paycheck (around $98K annually) can be spotted in New York, N.Y.; Dallas, Texas ($90K), Philadelphia, Pa. ($79K), and Ann Arbor, Mich. (approximately $76K) are the next top-paying cities. Carrollton, Texas is near the bottom for pay at about $58K. Within the company, workers earn the highest salaries (an average of approximately $95K per year) in New York.

Certifications and Degrees

FINRA Series 7 General Securities Representatives have significantly higher pay than non-accredited workers at $124K annually. Bigger paychecks are awarded to Project Management Professionals with credentials; these people earn $118K per year on average. The highest-paying degree here is a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Finance; Thomson Reuters awards around $144K to these degree-holders.


The best-paying skill to have in this role appears to be Microsoft SQL Server; employees who claim this ability report median compensation of $93K annually. SQL is considered a run-of-the-mill skill; nearly one in eight of Thomson Reuters' people use it regularly. Project Management, JavaScript, and C# Programming Language are also desirable skills.

Benefits and Perks

The company is somewhat lacking in the benefits department, and only a third of workers report compensation for sick days and vacation time. A large number of survey participants allocate some part of their earnings to the company-sponsored 401(k) savings plan. At Thomson Reuters, most employees have health insurance, and most survey participants have dental coverage. A few more workplace perks are a casual working environment, a subsidized cell phone, life insurance, and tuition reimbursement.
