    I have been working at Emap Communications full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Tend to work as autominous business units which has its pros & cons. Fairly supporting & try to provide a friendly work environment. Good award ceremonies!

    Cons

    Can feel like your working for a small company in the middle of a large office though! Now that the company has split into divisions I imagine the work experience will improve siginificantly

    Pros

    Great products - great trade journals about great trades. Wonderful to be stuck in to those fields and meet all the interesting people in them.

    Cons

    Too little resources, too much stress, bringing out all the worst sides of people. A dysfunctional workplace with too much competition, too little co-operation. Orwellian disjuncture eg praise from top management the management skills of middle managers who were totally incompetent and overwhelmed. One for the Tavistock Institute - it needs some therapy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get some psychodynamic work coaches in there now

    Not very inspiring

    Pros

    It was a big company so the benefits were pretty good. They also supported external training (and paid for it) if you pushed for it and did the legwork.

    Cons

    Editorially the main weakness is that Emap is such a hodgepodge of brands, there's no brand value to "Emap" at all -- it means nothing. It doesn't stand for quality, or speed, or technologically superior, or heritage -- nothing. That makes it very difficult for one of the individual publications to have values that last beyond that current editor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop empire building for a while until you figure out what the Emap brand means and how to build on it.
