    I have been working at Centaur Media full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    - Great maternity package which is transparent and available to view on the intranet (most of my female friends don't even know what they are entitled to at the companies they work for unless they ask!) - HR team are great. They listen and support you and have helped me on numerous occasions with challenges in my team and on a personal level. - Uncapped commissions including a very generous call time bonus (what other companies will pay sales people extra money just for hitting their call times?!! -which by the way the KPI is only 1hour 30 mins a day - that's less than 13 mins per hour and that doesn't include calling through your lunch) - Tons of benefits including free breakfast and fruit, yoga and meditation sessions, discounts at gyms and local shops, pension, free legal and money advice as well as counselling sessions for you and your family. - If you have a family or other commitments outside of work they 'get it'. There is no shaming if you have to go home early because of childcare issues or if you need time off for bereavement or long-term sickness. In fact they always ask 'what can we do to help?'

    Cons

    I think its a shame that other people have chosen to write such negative things. A company will never get everything 100% right and some of these reviews seem to me to be spiteful and sexist. Makes me question whether it really a reflection on the company or the individuals who wrote these things?

    I have been working at Centaur Media full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Team members in individual brand are great.

    Cons

    Being run into the ground by the management and management accountants who have little to no experience in the individual brands or markets so unable to add any real value apart from piling pressure (to the point of bullying) on you to hit unrealistic targets. Salaries are very low compared to other companies of the same stature and most people only stay for loyalty to their individual teams and brands rather than Centaur Media as a whole. If you want to work in Media go to EMAP, Closer Still, Incisive, Red Active or Haymarket. You will still probably have to put up with some of the same crap but you will probably be remunerated for it better and the offices are likely to be in much better condition.

    I worked at Centaur Media

    Pros

    The brands are good brands to be involved with

    Cons

    The management hierarchy is set up to deliver the worst kind of micro management i have seen. I worked here for a large period of my career, and over the last two years the company has transformed itself from being a great place to work, to one of the worst, from every element of the business. Human resources is no longer a place for support but is there more to help implement ridiculous regulations. Management have no respect for staff anymore, if you were looking for a career here, you should take a look at the % of employees that have left the business in the past 24 months, and also the incredible and high turnaround of staff they now have. That should give you the answer if you think that this is a place to build a career. Having worked for incisive media, Denis and Centaur (where i spent the longest) i would look at other publishers before considering Centaur, unless you like be being mis-treated and extorted.
