I worked at Fairfax Media full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Coworkers are supportive, good management / supervisors. Great Team Environment.

Cons

Poor short and long term focus, too many management and restructure changes on a regular basis making stability and focus impossible.

Advice to Management

Stop Shuffling the chairs and communicate the plan far and wide to all staff, not just senior management. Knowing what is coming is better than just expecting the worse.

    I worked at Fairfax Media full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some lovely down-to-earth people, beautiful offices, only had to give 30 days notice.

    Cons

    Staff cuts are making some people work too many hours, not a good place for parking, most of the staff are not happy to be there, some staff members get away with behaviour that would never be tolerated at other companies, many people have been there for years and are uninspired and set in their ways, a sense of constant fear that people may lose their jobs at any time.

    Advice to Management

    Understand your industry and start hiring some fresh blood with a positive attitude and passion for their job.
