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

Bradford, Yorkshire and the Humber, England (UK)

I worked at Newsquest as an intern for less than a year

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)

I worked at Newsquest

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
