    Great place to start out

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsEasy going work atmosphere. managers are very accessible.

    ConsPoor pay (unless in sales) no career progression as people tend to not move on, mostly everything is done on the cheap.

    It could have been a great place to work

    Editor (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    Pros- Good benefits, including season ticket loans, private healthcare, health checks, ride to work, reasonable pension, etc
    - Reasonable compensation
    - Some talented employees
    - I made some good friends there, many whom I still keep in touch with

    Cons- Politics and bureaucracy
    - Terrible systems
    - Poor employee morale
    - The company's online strategy was a complete mess
    - Heavily reliant on cash cows (magazines), and copying others' successes rather than trying to build their own
    - 'too many cooks' comes to mind and was my experience with any of the projects I worked on. It doesn't take 30 people (mostly managers) to design a logo.

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess bureaucracy would be a good thing - empower and listen to your employees and they will feel more valued.

    Great atmosphere, mediocre work

    Freelancer (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsPros – Good opportunities, as organization lacks smart people that act strategically.
    Great atmosphere & people, it's a pleasure to work there.

    ConsCons – everything is done on a budget so the end work looks cheap and mediocre.
    Many people playing experts, while in fact their knowledge is below average.
    Too much talking and directions from people clueless about the area of expertise that ends up with wrong decisions and slow progress.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSending Management on various short courses made managers feel they are now experts, while in fact they are not. Experts study subjects for years and have many years of practice, you can't become an expert in a week! Getting senior specialists freelancers to guide management for a few months every now and again would improve their skills leading to better decisions. Also if management stop making decisions against what experts say would improve the outcomes.

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

    Innovative and thought leading. They work you hard but good place to work

    Senior Sales Executive (Former Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsForward thinking. New ideas. Great sales incentives. Good location. Great people, peer groups are good company

    ConsPoor pay. Quite limited in personal development due to restrictive development plans. Plan on being here a good few years to make headway

    Advice to Senior ManagementLess micro-management, more trust in individuals' abilities

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Simply a great company to work for

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    London, England (UK)

    ProsA relaxed atmosphere makes coming into work each morning a genuine pleasure, and with minimal office politics you can feel sure it's a meritocracy. There's also a real passion about the work everyone does.

    ConsAs a small-to-medium sized company it can sometimes feel that things are done on the cheap and without due consideration.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the people on the ground floor (not literally).

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