    I worked at Business Standard Limited full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Department like Editorial is good to do a job in BS. Marketing is ok.

    Cons

    Never join Business Standard for non-editorial positions. While the editorial is hugely overpaid, other departments are hugely underpaid. Editors in BS do not retire and keep taking home fat pay checks. They have very low ethics, morality and professionalism. The editorial usually treats all other departments as slaves.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to isolate and handle overvalued & overrated staff. Work more on development of well skilled, educated & capable staff. Have a clear vision & mission statements. Your vision & mission statements are highly ambiguous & no more than a Joke. BS is a directionless and ever loss making company. Its running business on external funding. BS should stop begging its financiers and start focusing on earnings and profits, instead of vouching on freebies. The business skills and capabilities of Editorial staff should be utilized and held accountable for company overall performance. What makes them good at evaluating all other businesses in the world and still be loss making & ignorant at own business ?

    Pros

    Relaxed, patient and slow. Big and old name. Some really good journalists still around at the company who are very paternal.

    Too relaxed and conservative. And too slow. Archaic notice periods. Some people need to be whipped into gear.

    Advice to Management

    Need a desperate overhaul. Website is still teated as a step child. It has forgotten what can be done.
