    I worked at The New Indian Express full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The New IE is one of the stronger newspapers in the south and my exp. in Chennai was very positive. Work is hectic in reporting but overall there is quite a bit of independence for reporters. Good place to start your career as a reporter. As a deskie not so much as growth is minimal unless you make a strategic move.

    Cons

    As a deskie not so much as growth is minimal unless you make a strategic move.

    Advice to Management

    Be competitive and put in more efforts stop poaching by other newspapers. A bonus or incentive system is badly needed.
