    Pros

    Wide product range, Tech advanced, diverse culture, friendly staff, great incentives, supportive staff members.

    Cons

    Though FFX media is the leading publisher in Australia and it a head of their competitors with their product ranges. I feel sometimes it take too long to action business decisions.

    I have been working at Fairfax Media

    Pros

    The enjoyment of working for a well respected organisation, where quality is still a first priority. I am pretty much left alone to do what I do best. Plenty of holidays. A lot of autonomy given to people in how they go about their jobs. More respect from management than in other media organisations. Good team of intelligent people to work with, all dedicated to doing the best they can.

    Cons

    It exists in the management dark ages - but that is common with every media organisation I know. Location at Pyrmont is atrocious, everyone hates it. There is little communication from management and certainly no two-way discussion. There is no ongoing discussion about the future of the company and the industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start training your managers to be managers. Get a real performance management process in place, not some offr the shelp tickabox system that has no relevance to the jobs that we do. Start talking to the peple who work here.
