Pros

Smart people. Tons of users. Lots of opportunity if you're effective at getting things done in big organizations.

Too many layers, which slows does the ability to innovate and respond effectively to opportunities.

Advice to Management

Cut the layers. Focus on the key media properties: Sport, News, Finance, Front Page

    Pros

    Company was in the process of rising from the dead and rebranding itself after many years of unfortunate circumstance and mismanagement. Very cool to see this internally. Has great atmosphere and most teams are pretty cohesive. Though pay is moderate, they take very good care of their employees. Did I mention lunch is free!?

    Cons

    Still has dinosaur tendencies. Office can feel a bit cramped with the looming sense that you are being fried by fluorescent light. Four quarterly reviews is pretty excessive. Can get lost in the Goliath of an infrastructure. Not too many company outings or team building opportunities; I still felt after a year in the office that I barely knew anyone as most people kept to themselves under tall cubicle walls.
