    Pros

    While I can't speak for the other offices, mine is energetic and has a great team spirit. I have a great manager and team of colleagues. I feel I'm treated fairly and valued for what I do. Some nice benefits too. Working for a well known and respected brand makes a sales person's job much easier.

    Cons

    Sometimes the way different departments have to work together doesn't encourage cooperation (often the opposite). I think there needs to be some work done there. Also, print is a very challenging industry to be in right now, so the future of the company (and its employees) really depends on the success of transferring print revenue into its digital products as rapidly as possible. Not much room for upward movement in the career path.

    Advice to Management

    I'm confident the management are making every possible move to strengthen our digital offerings, but some fundamental changes need to be made with how the accounts department works with the sales team. This needs more common sense than bean counting!

    Management make a strong effort to listen to people, perhaps not much innovation or risk taking.

    I have been working at Trinity Mirror full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Wages are reasonable, good holiday entitlement, good sickness cover, decent occupational health service, money towards prescription glasses every two years.

    Cons

    Staff shortages, communication with staff not great, too many chiefs and not enough Indians, corners being cut everywhere, training not great, however in terms of the newspaper industry these are all pretty common, and so I'd say they're no worse than any other company doing a similar job.

    Advice to Management

    More consideration should be given to the effects of cuts on front line staff who are unable to do their job properly due to repeated cuts and mergers.
