    Challenging projects

    In my first few months as part of the Management Associates Program (MAP), I’ve already been able to work with both the IP & Science Market Intelligence team (based in the U.S.) to identify opportunities in China and also the Strategic Markets team (based in the U.K.) to understand the professional training market in China.

    Immediate impact

    Due to language barriers, business research within regional markets such as China can be limited. Since I joined the project,

    I was able to bring my business knowledge and Chinese language ability to help the team

    collect data, conduct interviews and support critical strategic objectives.

    The MAP adventure

    On my current rotation, my team is developing a really exciting business plan. Our project will be presented to leadership, and hopefully it will turn into a new business venture next year!

    A variety of experiences

    As a participant in the Management Associates Program (MAP), I’ve worked on a number of projects in our legal business, corporate strategy and corporate finance groups. Recently I joined the business development team in Latin America.

    High profile project

    As one of my projects, I conducted an overview of the media portfolio of a legal acquisition and recommended how best to integrate the various publications and digital assets. I supported an organizational design analysis to determine how the business should best align to drive growth.

    Navigating within MAP

    Delivering high performance in new roles and areas of the business – almost starting a new job – every six months is the most challenging aspect of the program.

    It demands energy and adaptability, but makes the job invigorating.

    Hit the ground running

    My favorite part of the Management Associates Program (MAP) is the immediate input expected of its participants from day one. Senior leaders look to program members for answers to tough questions. As a result, there is a lot of exposure and opportunity.

    My very first summer at Thomson Reuters I was able to participate in the beginnings of our synergy program which has saved over $1 billion. It was a tremendous endeavor and added great depth to my summer experience.

    Variety = motivation

    What really challenges and drives me is that my job does not fall neatly into one category.

    In my latest rotation in Operational Finance, I have been building market maps, suggesting product bundles, forecasting sales and retention, and structuring sales compensation, to mention just a few of my projects.

    Surrounded by quality

    From my interactions with Human Resources, my managers and coworkers, and up to executive level leadership, I always have the feeling that clients and shareholders alike have engaged, intelligent representatives looking out for their best interests.

    Mapping a future

    The Management Associates Program (MAP) enabled me to explore areas of interest where I had never worked before.

    With the various rotations, I could "try" the job without permanently committing to it, and use this opportunity to explore related job possibilities.

    The program comes with a ready and diverse network of graduates. Any time I need tips on a project or suggestions on a certain career track, I just pick up the phone. We can also leverage the program's reputation to reach out to business leaders for advice and to find mentors.

    Incentive to succeed

    As a member of the markets strategy team, I worked on the creation of a solution sales group, with innovative organizational structure and sales incentives. Members of the group come from eight business units and are experts in each domain. The initiative is well-received by customers and is expected to bring in opportunities that would otherwise be lost.

    High-profile for high achievers

    My current role gives me great autonomy to own a high-profile project. I enjoy putting my knowledge from previous rotations to work, making things happen, and creating value for both customers and the company.

    The culture and values at Thomson Reuters are also appealing. Learning and innovation is supported with processes and resources; family time and personal life are highly respected; and employees are encouraged to move around to build up their skill set and enable career advancement. All this makes the company a great place to work.
