    I worked at Aspermont

    Pros

    One's co-workers are the primary reasons for working at Aspermont. Despite apparent limits in their own ability, management tends to hire excellent quality staff with regards to both personality and professional performance. One's colleagues are the reason why one returns to the workplace day after day and the support network developed in this strata provides the backbone in maintaining operational feasibility.

    Cons

    Limits to career advancement (excepting editorial departments), authoritarian management style, high stress/oppressive work conditions and lack of (positive) communication are some key reasons to avoid Aspermont as an employer. Independent thought and creativity are discouraged by management who heavily monitor staff to ensure that such things may be addressed in their infancy. Onus of responsibility in all high risk matters are placed on the shoulders of staff while accolades are reserved for higher tiers, so if it is an encouraging workplace with a view of developing a long term career you want, Aspermont is unlikely to tick the boxes.

    "Good stepping stone, but low pay & flexibility"

    • Senior Management
    Journalist in Perth, Western Australia

    I have been working at Aspermont

    Pros

    Aspermont provides a good opportunity to gain experience & increase skills as a journalist on various publications. It is good stepping stone to move on to more high paying and better journalist positions. A great starting point for any journalist who is beginning their career or who has limited experience. Upper editorial management is understanding, supportive, friendly and open to new ideas and willign to listen. Because of a shortage in staff, current employees are given the opportunity for rapid advancement and building on experience and skills in a much shorter time period, than a company who has plenty of staff to perform all required duties. Upper management are skilled and know what they are doing and this is beneficial for anyone who is learning. Journalists also do not have to work on weekends

    Cons

    The main downsides of working for Aspermont are low pay, expected to work a lot of overtime for no extra pay, salary discrepencies between men & women, and huge differences in salaries between departments. There is little flexibility and no advocacy of work-life balance. Employees are expected to work hard for little compensation. There is also a shortage of staff so current employees are frequently doing the jobs of two or even three people and quality is sometimes sacrifice. The environment is often stressful and employees frequently burn out and this results in a high staff turnover. There is often little communication between departmetns.

    "Aspermont - The Death of Career Advancement"

    I have been working at Aspermont

    Pros

    The best reason for working at Aspermont are the other staff. Despite all the obstacles working for this company, the people within it make it bearable to go to work each day. They are supportive of one another and readily help each other out. My advice: If you plan on taking on employment at Aspermont make sure you make friends, you will need them.

    Cons

    Outside of the editorial department there is no room for career advancement. Despite senior management promoting their desire to see employee growth this does not happen, without fail despite the qualifications of internal staff external members are hired for lucrative positions as it would be "too hard to replace people in the junior levels" which is understandable given some of these junior job roles and the low pay that goes hand in hand with them.
