the worst experience I have had in my ten year career in broadcasting

Journalist (Former Employee)
Paris (France)

I worked at France 24

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

ConsHowever, 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 Senior ManagementHire 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
