    Former Employee - Media Sales Manager in London, England

    Negative Outlook
    Approves of CEO

    I worked at The London Evening Standard full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Management team aside, some very talented people working in commercial, real passion for the brand and what it can offer.

    Cons

    Hugely mis-managed, very old fashion ‘media’, at times very sexist (not support of working mothers or flexible working). At risk of losing some real talent if those left aren’t better looked after.

    Advice to Management

    Too many lines of management

    I worked at The London Evening Standard full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -it's a job -some people are ok

    Cons

    - low pay -bad communication between managers and when I say bad, I mean no communication -no room for growth or respect for the workers -the only things these people care about are appearances and status, I have never met more fake people in my life - you can't trust your coworkers -when I took the job I was told the vertical was going to be substantial and interesting but it is just an SEO site that a bot... could write DONT WORK HERE

    If you're going to open a NY office maybe invest in webcams/zoom so you can actually communicate with them
