I have been working at Mergermarket Group full-time for more than a year

Pros

The working environment and management is encouraging and spirited to encourage employees to strive for high standard works and results.

Cons

The organization structure is a bit flat and does not have much of a defined hierachy to ensure a clear career path and development for employees.

    Nice people in general and reasonable salaries but limited career progression. Good if you have kids.

    I have been working at Mergermarket Group full-time

    Pros

    Generally friendly and accommodating management, decent salaries if you are in the right part of the business, some services within the group are seen as a "must-have" by clients. Very international workplace.

    Cons

    The company is essentially multiple different news services run under one roof, with some services much more successful than others. You could end up under a poor manager selling a dud service and working very hard whilst sat next to a lifer with a great service who hardly needs to pick up the phone to secure big sales. What is noticeable is that the talented people with good degrees and ambition tend to move on, generally due to the lack of promotion opportunities and having to work under a manager with less qualifications and intelligence who behaves like a tyrant in order to give the impression that they are qualified management material.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote talent, don't be afraid to sideline lifers who add no value even though they have been at the company for years and fast track people with ideas instead. Understand that enjoying a beer and sharing a social background with somebody is not a reason to make them management, the old boys network has severely hampered profitability at this business.
