    I have been working at Independent News full-time

    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.
