    I have been working at Financial Times full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great brand. Fairly well paid. Good benefits. Not quick to sack people.

    Cons

    There is an in-crowd of white British people from wealthy families who went to a select few top public schools. By doing a good enough job they are judged to be excellent. The rest have to strive to get noticed and promoted. Even if you went to Oxford or Cambridge, actually where you went to school counts for more.

    Advice to Management

    Try to be more of a meritocracy and less of an aristocracy.

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Financial Times (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    It was a direct process, Applied online and heard back within two days for a phone screening which was 15 minutes. Got offered a chance to come in the next week for a group/panel interview with people on the team I would be working with and then had an individual interview on another day with the head of the department. Got the offer early the next week and began the week after.
