I worked at Trinity Mirror full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Good pay and I got out with VR payment.

Cons

I could have tolerated the unpleasantness of the working environment if it wasn't for the poor management and poor communication that led to overlaps in work and the frequent feeling that you have contributed nothing. I felt completely useless while working there. I also found the lack of support in learning the systems also completely unhelpful.

Advice to Management

Support your staff better, manage project overlaps and give up with the office politics.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Great colleagues and a marginally more principled outfit than competition

    Cons

    Uninspiring management lacking in vision or leadership with an inability to enthuse or motivate staff. Constant (and well-justified fear) that cost-cutting means job insecurity and if that means sacrificing quality, so be it. Thoroughly dispiriting place to work. A once great institution in irreversible decline.

    Advice to Management

    Don't slavishly follow what other better-funded newspapers are doing. Have more confidence in readers and staff. Lose feudal system of management so that everyone feels involved. Give staff a good idea of who the papers are "talking to". Stop obsession with share price. Make a newspaper you would actually want to read, even if it isn't aimed at you.


  2. "Declining industry"

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Relatively high pay for the area. Company health scheme. Shift work that allows more time off with the family which might appeal to some

    Cons

    Declining industry which means prospects are slim. Constant cost cutting means very few opportunities to advance. Not a long term career.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people with training and support. There are some good people there but constant fears of cost cutting stifles risk taking.
