    Life at EMAP

    Sales Executive (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

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

    ConsCan 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

    Terrible

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

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

    ConsToo 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 Senior ManagementGet some psychodynamic work coaches in there now

    Not very inspiring

    Editorial (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsIt 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.

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

    Some good titles but poor management

    Chief Sub Editor (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsOpportunity to work on some exciting titles. Good location in central London.

    ConsManagerial incompetence. Lack of communication on all levels regarding important issues.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTalk to your employees! Involve them in all decisions

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
