I worked at Daily Mail and General Trust full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Love it or hate it, everyone have an opinion about the company - so always a great conversation starter. Digital is the most exciting area, so great place to be. Being part of transforming the oldest kind of media to the digital future is an exciting place to be, shaping the future and all that.

Cons

Slow moving, like most newspaper businesses.

Advice to Management

Encourage innovation more, deliver it more frequently. Putting out an iPad app 2 years after everyone else has launched one isn't innovation. Learn more about lean start-up and the concept of MVP to get to market quicker.

    I have been working at Daily Mail and General Trust (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very stable and continuing to grow. Really great staff. Company offers 15 days vacation right as you start. Lots of good learning experience at a huge international news outlet.

    Cons

    Job is very photo research heavy. Requires a lot of time digging through peoples Facebook pages. The news focus at the Mail is certainly more pop culture oriented, or news with a sensational slant.

    Advice to Management

    Offer more competitive benefits package. While the salary and vacation time is solid, a gym membership or metro passes seem fair to ask for a company as large as Mail Online.
