    Pros

    By getting thrown into work, and being responsible you get to learn, learnt o deal with difficult people, make interesting friends

    Cons

    Too many supervisors with different demands, no time to eat, drink or pee,

    Advice to Management

    treat everyone equal and don't be flattered by your employees praises. Assessments and fitting the right people into the right profile has to be taught about. Please understand which area requires more employees and don't make one area more superior to another. Every employee's contribution is as important as the next one

    Pros

    One of the best places to work, hard to come across organisation which provide such facilities for employees.Though the company had to let go off a good chunk of the staff, it would still be an exceptional place to work.

    Cons

    erratic and endless work schedules

    Advice to Management

    keep the company sustainable and meaningful to employees, as compared to other companies a media outfit cater to a lot more people.Wish you all the very best of future.
