    Pros

    Staff and reporting manger was very much experience and co-operative for fresher. Good chance to learn as a fresher in area of space selling for print media.

    Pros

    Have a knack of getting right people in the company. The verticals are clearly defined. Within the team, there was great sense of trust, ownership and supportive attitude.

    Have no growth chart for the employees and certain part of the top management is very short sighted.

    Advice to Management

    To have a more holistic approach to people. They need to learn to recognise and reward positive contributions made by the teams.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Next Gen Publishing Limited as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Can't think of any pros, really. However, if sycophancy is your strategy to stable employment, then this could well be the place for you.

    Cons

    This company is based on a single premise - to copy what Infomedia did in the past, is doing presently, and is likely to do in future. The management is largely comprised of individuals ejected from Infomedia, which is why every strategy discussion, general meeting or cafetaria conversation revolves around Infomedia.
    The level of paranoia is extremely high. Worse, the atmosphere is political and hostile towards any individual with a questioning mind.
    There isn't any focus on talent retention, and anybody with a degree of skill and a willingness to work will quit sooner or later.
    From the editorial, to marketing, design, circulation etc, every department is comprised of individuals wouldn't find employment anywhere else.
    This company survives and subsists on a cuple of trade titles which inject a drip feed of revenue into the company.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up, smell the fertiliser, and launch a clean-up act.
