    I have been working at Guardian News & Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Still in Start up mode so lots to learn and do.
    Lots of great people to work with and learn from
    Great news organization
    Benefits are great

    Cons

    We are overseen by our "parent" in the UK who doesn't seem to have a plan on how to deal with anything.
    Throw against the wall to see what sticks mentality
    No sense of direction for the people who work very hard to make it a success
    While benefits are great, compensation is only great for some

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees. They have really good ideas and do care about the company and it's direction

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at Guardian News & Media in September 2015.

    Interview

    So far just a phone interview, but she was very nice and eager to have me come in for an in-person interview. She asked about my experience and interest in the company and also told me briefly about the job description, growth potential and training opportunities, since this will be an entry-level role for me.
