    I have been working at Emap full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Friendly culture
    Good senior management team
    Good attitude to work/life balance

    Cons

    The annual company conference is the most disheartening experience of everyone's year.

    Pros

    Great lunch spots - that's about it

    Cons

    EMAP are now up for sale for not meeting the muddied and far from reach aspirations of its holding company Ascential.
    There is zero progression. Zero support and an absolute mentality of 'mate’s rates' for those favoured. I haven't quite experienced a company whereby it is an accepted revolving door culture. People get bored of the monotony, fed up with the idiotic management and savvy to the appalling pay and leave.
    The company vision is about as transparent as knee high mud and more concerned with patching over the many cracks with bare face lies, than being respectfully honest.
    HR are as far removed from being the pillars and protectors of employee relations as you could get. They’ve all the warmth and empathy of a newt in a bucket of ice.
    The place is ran by a total band of clowns, on a bicycle with no wheels.
    Avoid EMAP. Avoid Ascential. They’re both as ridiculous as the other.

    I have been working at Emap full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    many good people, office in a nice locaiton (at the moment). It used to be quite sociable but that doesnt seem to be the case any more.

    Cons

    The business is up for sale by Ascential, so who knows where it will end up. There is no career progression. Marketing and editorial are poorly paid. Promises will be made and not kept. Bonuses are not worth anything so don't move here for a higher bonus. People are largely seen as disposable, there is no loyalty. I would not recommend this company to anyone

    Advice to Management

    stop being arrogant, cheapskate liars
