    I worked at Telegraph Media Group

    Pros

    I worked at the Telegraph online department for a year and a half. It was very interesting and my colleagues were all dynamic individuals. They seemed committed to innovation and providing a top notch product.

    Cons

    Sometimes I felt the drive to increase website traffic clouded editorial decisions. Also, during a period of cutbacks I thought management treated the casual workers unfairly (but I may be biased).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't compromise the caliber of the content of the website in the hunt for extra clicks.

    I worked at Telegraph Media Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to chase stories and hone reporting skills. Interns are given a lot of responsibility and assumed to have a high competence level. Journalists in DC office are excellent and great mentors.

    Cons

    Some administrative work, but that's to be expected. Internships are not extended beyond their one semester term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your interns to stay with the organization and grow; offer paid internships
