    How many people will you lose after investing in training before you realise its the management that people are leaving!

    Sales (Former Employee) Southampton, England (UK)

    ProsGood working hours. Great people with good knowledge

    ConsPoor management, no direction, strategy changing too frequent, new people dont stay and newsquest dont do anything to keep the talent they have.

    Advice to Senior Managementsort your seniors out, your paying people to do very little, your expectations are very out of date to todays economy, £5000 a day for a digital skin, and you wonder why you dont sell any! Get real Newsquest.... Do you know what your values are? I dont think your people do.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Locked in the dark ages... neanderthal Directors with no integrity

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCan't think of any pros, found whole experience demotivating

    ConsUtter shambles of a business, Luddite mentality to new media, fingers crossed approach to old media

    Advice to Senior ManagementShip out and make way for those who've progressed to having thumbs on the evolutionary scale

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A valuable insight into the workings of a daily, local newspaper.

    Trainee (Former Employee) Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)

    ProsThe quality of journalists working at the newspaper is exceptional. The newsroom is a friendly and pleasant environment to work in.

    ConsAs it is a daily newspaper, there is intense pressure to provide interesting news stories for the local area.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue with the good work!

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Terrible, profit driven company whose employees are expendable.

    Graphic Designer (Former Employee) Birkenhead, England (UK)

    ProsWe only had to work 4 days a week (granted, 2 of those days we worked 13 hour shifts, we had to opt out of employment law to allow this).

    ConsAwful managers, I was told "Graphic Designers are ten-a-penny, if you don't like the job, we'll replace you." No clear management, everything was designed by committee resulting in anodyne, bland designs and layouts.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry thinking about the people who work for you rather than the bottom line, you might even be able to earn some respect.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
