    I worked at Fairfax Media (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic company to work for with the best print and digital offerings in market. Great culture with a strong focus on staff and their development. Can't recommend Fairfax enough.

    Cons

    Hot desking can sometimes be painful especially when there are no desks available. Hot tip: Have a colleague save you a desk if you're out of the office.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and make sure that you continue to acknowledge the hard work of your team members.

    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Fairfax Media (Sydney (Australia)).

    Interview

    3 interviews with hiring manager, GM and peer. Short interviews, not particularly difficult. Process was drawn out only by availability of interviewers. Gave the impression that there was no urgency to hire, which seems true of the company in general.
