    Pros

    I worked at the Telegraph online department for a year and a half. It was very interesting and my colleagues were all dynamic individuals. They seemed committed to innovation and providing a top notch product.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt the drive to increase website traffic clouded editorial decisions. Also, during a period of cutbacks I thought management treated the casual workers unfairly (but I may be biased).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't compromise the caliber of the content of the website in the hunt for extra clicks.
