    Pros

    Good exposure to interesting work. Good work life balance.

    Cons

    Pressurised industry for newspapers. Investment in people not prioritised and becomes obvious. Lack of focus and clear lack of belief that culture and communication from management important. Leads to culture of rumours and gossipping about possible changes. Cutbacks in resources but just expected that same workload will get done within team, don't care how or if feasible. Short termist in strategy and performance measurement. Not an environment where you can expect your work to speak for itself.

    Pros

    Dynamic fast paced business going through considerable digital transformation. Staff are highly skilled & lovely to work with.

    Cons

    As a result of the level of change, new structure, RACI etc. there is a level of flux. 2020 will see the new structure bed down.

    Pros

    The work was interesting and for many years this was a good company to work for.

    Cons

    Not paid enough for hours put in, expenses witheld, micro-management, no chance to progress unless you are a close personal friend of senior management, too many people who have been there for too long.
