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

Pros

Haymarket provides a place where the corporate culture is relaxed and friendly, there is also breakfast every other Friday. Full benefits.

Cons

The pay could be better as well as performance management and opportunity for growth. Also, there is very little training, so while you can do a satisfactory job, you aren't necessarily building skills that put you ahead of the competition.

Advice to Management

Take time out to teach employees new skills. Give consistent directions and feedback.

    I have been working at Haymarket Media Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A selection of market leading brands all under one umbrella. Huge opportunities to grow within a department.
    Recent investment announcement sets out an exciting 5 year plan bringing big job security.
    Excellent benefits and pension plan and fair commission structure for sales roles.
    Approachable, friendly staff, flexi/home working is not judged but instead supported and encouraged. Good transport links trains into town take 20 minutes and easy to drive to the office being close to M3.
    Integrity is key focus in all commercial decisions and publications.

    Cons

    Haymarket works a little under the radar owning well respected big brands which you tend to only see on the newsstand, when challenger/competitor brands are plastered over billboards, busses, and TV.
    Can be a little slow to implement big commercial strategy, but this appears to have improved more recently with some big projects in the pipeline.

    Advice to Management

    Need to better leverage the brands to grow scale investing in infrastructure and Tech....some technical debt has slowed progress over the years but I'd like to think the newly announced investment will address this and rocket the company to its much deserved market leading position.
