    Great company to work with

    Executive Producer (Former Employee)
    Delhi (India)

    Pros- Great bosses. Rajdeep Sardesai in particular
    - Open flow of ideas is encouraged, even those which don't go with the flow
    - Good camaraderie. People always ready to help

    ConsVery few cons really. Although bosses don't encourage internal politicking, they sometimes overlook bad apples. Growth avenues need to be thought out, because work gets to be a bit repetitive

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Excellent place to work

    Journalist (Current Employee)
    Delhi (India)

    ProsIt's the best HR environment I have ever worked in. Their HR head has moved to his own venture now. But I hope the company has retained the values that made working there a pleasure. And their editorial heads are also the best that I have ever come across.

    ConsThey have a tight hold on growth opportunities. You have to push harder for a chance to prove yourself.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Best place to work in terms of work culture and work environ

    Associate Editor (Current Employee)
    Noida (India)

    ProsNo Hierarchy barriers…..bosses are assessable any time and even instances of interns approaching Editor in Chief without hesitation. Healthy work atmosphere and HR department is the best in the industry.

    ConsIn some sections groupism and nepotism and as usual you have to be always be on good books of your boss. Impression of the boss counts last whatever be the talent. Talent is not the sole yardstick of growth.

    Not the place for sobers, flamboyance is the rule of the House for growth.
    Yes a very bad canteen.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhen performance is not rewarded and where sincerity/hard work is not the sole yard stick of growth, then demoralization sets in that affects the output.

    – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A name that attracts all but the nearer you are you realise the sham.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
    Mumbai (India)

    ProsCo-workers can be helpful if you can form a bond with them.

    ConsGroupism, Nepotism and favourism in terms of people you know and only give them opportunities to rise while you make sure to let the others rest and give them whatever you dont think is appropriate for your favourite group.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThere are many talented people other than the ones you favor. you dont give them a chance does not mean they are not talented or smart.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Good work place, challenging environment but loosing focus

    Journalist (Current Employee)
    New Delhi (India)

    ProsGreat Boss, Approachable management, Open to new ideas, not hierarchical

    ConsToo focused on trps, sometimes marketing decisions take over editorial calls, more trust on other channels and agencies rather than their own reporters

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust your news sense its always been great. Stick to what you think makes news and not what competition is playing. Try and value your employees and loyalty

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Place to work in

    Delhi (India)

    ProsOpen atmosphere. Freedom to do things your way. Great bosses. Great colleagues. An environment which fosters team work

    ConsNo cons really, but the industry in which it is operating is very tough and competitive, and that leads to a lot of things being done just to counter competition.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGreat management. Need to keep the openness intact

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
