  1. Great beginner sales experience, particularly if you are studying business/ commerce at university. Poor innovation.

    Pros

    - Provides OK sales training
    - Quite a bit better than generic call-centre environments
    - Decent work environment
    - Decent pay + work-life balance + sick/ annual leave policies

    Cons

    - Terrible at listening to employee criticisms of workflow/ methods they use
    - Constant denial that digital media/ advertising is the future (insists that print media will be here forever, which we all know is a lie)
    - Rupert Murdoch
    - Managers are nice, but there are some underwhelming ones which don't teach you too much.

    Advice to Management

    - Please be more open to innovation.
    - Listen to your employees (even the lowest level sales staff)
    - Embrace digital advertising. It is the future and you will keep losing money if you don't focus on it.

  2. Stuck in the past

    Pros

    - Fast-paced newsroom environment
    - Australia's biggest print publisher

    Cons

    - Absolutely chaotic.
    - So many opportunities for efficiency, but management lack the capability for major transformation.
    - Complete disregard for the science behind what people will be interested in; instead basing on gut and an agenda

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the cowboys who call the shots.
    Think properly about the future - the paywall was too hasty.
