    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

    Cons

    Very 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

    Pros

    It'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.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Engage the employees in the decision making process and communicate better with the employees. Help employees align their goals with the companies. Invest more in employee training.

    Pros

    No 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.

    Cons

    In 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 Management

    When 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.

    Pros

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

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Trust 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

    Pros

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

    Cons

    No 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 Management

    Great management. Need to keep the openness intact
