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

Pros

I have loved working here, nice small community that has been built. All employees are great to work with and there is always something different going on.

Cons

Some of the work is repetative, but that is standard for most office jobs.

    I have been working at Centaur Media full-time (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.

    Advice to Management

    No point they won't listen


  2. "Reliable client, bit chaotic sometimes"

    Pros

    Reliable company to work for, Good at setting out their expectations of the final project, nice people.

    Cons

    Deadlines sometimes go haywire and are increasingly way too tight as they panic to keep sponsors, occasionally slow to pay, some of the lowest per word rates in the industry

    Advice to Management

    Set your sponsors' expectations so writers don't have to compromise content or fail to meet them. Improve commissioning skills and process in some departments.
