Contract Mainframe Developer (Former Employee) – Brookfield, WI – August 18, 2019
They pay well but the turnover is astronomical. They work people to death and you get burned out and then get fired for small mistakes. Most last 3 years or less which makes for Chaos as I.T. is a knowledge based profession,. You are nothing more than cattle to them to be used for every last drop of sweat and then discarded for the next batch of victims. This place should be your last resort from unemployment,

Senior Software Engineer (Current Employee) – St. Louis, MO – March 8, 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.
Nice People, Good Benefits, Relaxed working environment

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.
