    Please join this organization. Hiring and firing often happen. If you want to create hole in your resume, then join this organization. Typical baniya company. Everyone works solo and does not let new joinee stitck to organization.

    Pros

    I cant think of any Pro's , yes they have good brand name in the Market specially Autocar , which is also loosing its value bcoz of improper management of employees

    Cons

    Management doesn't know , what they are up to , you can ask any of the employees who are working , working style is of 1980's , with no proper structure , No work ethics , in spite of knowing everything doesn't seem to awake, BANIYA company in short

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere, fun workplace, overall a good place to start your career as entry level journalists. It's a place full of people who are passionate about their work.

    I have been working at Haymarket SAC Publishing full-time

    Pros

    Senior employees are paid well

    Cons

    This is a truly terrible company - if you join you will be working 70-80 hour weeks and, like all the staff, you won't last long. Management does not care about the welfare of employees - all they care about is extracting as much profit from you as possible. I would strongly discourage anyone from joining Haymarket in Hong Kong, especially on the editorial side - you will regret it. Check with friends who... have worked there and they will say the same. I am so happy to finally be leaving this awful company. I'll be gone by Christmas, thank goodness.
