Pros

Young company, built around engaging with people and their passions. In house training is fantastic and comprehensive. Bath is a great city, with transport links to London and Bristol. Bristol airport is nearby as well. Work with people who share you passion.

Cons

Bath is a beautiful and relaxing place, but younger employees, or anyone a bit adventurous may find it lacking.

    I worked at Future Publishing Limited full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There are some really great people working here, which is the only reason I stayed. The London office is in a good location with shops/pubs etc nearby, and there's an on-site cafe.

    Cons

    Salary below industry average, poor working atmosphere (they see anyone who doesn't work late as 'slacking'), too many corners are cut in terms of hiring staff to replace those who have left - even if the work still needs to be done. I was offered very little in the way of training and development, and was never sure if promotion was really an option here.

    A good job in theory, but not in practice

    I worked at Future Publishing Limited

    Pros

    There is a good community atmosphere at Future Publishing and it is easy to make friends with colleagues.
    The offices are nice and well maintained, so you feel very comfortable in your environment.

    Cons

    It's pot luck on what type of manager you'll have and many of them are not interested in helping to develop their team. The job role of 'Editor' is considered an illustrious position where you don't have to do much work, and is generally only earned by people who have been in the company many years, rather than young up-starts who may have new, fresh and innovative ideas.
    There is also a 'boys club' atmosphere on many magazines, which makes women feel intimidated and pushed out.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management need to appreciate the work that their team does and recognise it. Often many editors take recognition for work that isn't theirs and won't pass on praise to others.
