    Full of Hypocrisy and ironically regressive for a Media company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsWork-Life balance is the only positive aspect I can think of

    ConsVery Political, gossipy and negative work environment
    Regressive policies and attitudes of senior leadership
    No Transparency in any policies, systems or decisions whatsoever
    Mediocre work culture, hierarchy driven- poor incentive payouts
    Top management lives in their glasshouses and has no clue about ground level reality
    Absolutely no culture of merit or performance- Its all perception driven and favouritism driven

    Advice to Senior ManagementPls learn to treat employees with some respect and learn to build performance/merit driven culture- high time!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Not enough money to pay the bills

    Journalist (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsMumbai offices big, comfortable and well located, health coverage for dependents of employees, collegial atmosphere in newsroom

    ConsGlass ceiling, average age of newsroom *too* young, top-down approach to what is newsworthy, editorial power quite poor, salary not enough to live on (unless you already have other income, don't have to pay a home loan, or happy to depend on hefty income of your spouse or parents)

    Advice to Senior ManagementRaise salaries, have a lively edit page in print editions, give editors more freedom to make publications more intelligent, have five-day weeks (or six-hour shifts 6 days/week)

    Great learning, but extremely political. Very negative atmosphere

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsI learnt a lot while working there. As market leader with near-unlimited advertising power, you get a lot of chance to experiment.

    ConsVery highly political atmosphere. There is too much deadwood in senior management, which kills employee morale. There are some great guys, yes, and I can honestly say that my department head was one of them - very sharp, fair person. But there are too many people below him and around who don't contribute much.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe a little more merit-focused.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
