Pros

_D'excellents collègues du monde entier, bonne atmosphère, et le travail est sympa.
_Le travail garde des expats comme celui qui a écrit ceci à Paris.
_L'argent est convenable.

Excellent colleagues from all over the world, good atmosphere and the job is fun.
The work keeps expats like this reviewer in Paris.
The money's OK.

Cons

Les problèmes avec cette entreprise sont tous au niveau de la direction.

The problems with this company are all at the top.
Good people get promoted on merit, then fired because they seem pose a threat to 'La Direction'.
Senior union reps tend to get top jobs by virtue of being union reps and not because they are any good.
Mediocre middle managers don't get sacked, they get promoted sideways and forgotten about.
And underneath are lots of happy and hard-working journalists who wouldn't touch a management opportunity with a bargepole.

    Pros

    Donne réellement la possibilité aux journalistes anglais de travailler sur une émission journalière en direct

    It does provide English journalists with an opportunity to work on a daily live broadcast

    Cons

    Mais le salaire est minimal comparé aux autres dans le secteur
    Ils aiment recruter de jeunes journalistes très inexpérimentés qu'ils peuvent manipuler par la peur
    L'équipe de direction manque tout à fait de professionnalisme et ne vous donne aucun feedback
    Leurs attentes sont ridicules par rapport à ce qu'ils offrent en compensation

    However, the pay is the minimum compared to others in the Industry
    They like to hire young, highly inexperienced journalists who they can manipulate with fear
    The management team is very unprofessional and does not give you any feedback
    Their expectations are ridiculous compared to what they offer in compensation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recruter du personnel qui ait réellement de l'expérience et sache gérer une émission quotidienne.
    Il y a de nombreux membres de la direction qui prétendent avoir beaucoup d'expérience, bien que ce soit évident qu'ils sont juste aussi perdus que les jeunes

    Hire people who actually have experience and can manage a daily broadcast
    There are a lot of people on the management team who claim to have a lot of experience but it is obvious that they are just as lost as the young freelancers they hire
    News is not subjective to your opinion it is fact based and not meant to be manipulated based on your own prejudices
    If you are going to have an English news desk then make sure that the people running the desk can speak English.
