    I worked at The Telegraph as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to chase stories and hone reporting skills. Interns are given a lot of responsibility and assumed to have a high competence level. Journalists in DC office are excellent and great mentors.

    Cons

    Some administrative work, but that's to be expected. Internships are not extended beyond their one semester term

    Advice to Management

    Allow your interns to stay with the organization and grow; offer paid internships

    I worked at The Telegraph as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked for the Telegraph in 2014. All the staff - with one exception - were fantastically helpful and I would definitely recommend applying. Just avoid

    Cons

    Other interns were prickly and spent the entire placement sucking up to important staff in a tragically lame attempt to secure full-time work at the paper. They were rightfully rebuffed, much to my amusement.

    Advice to Management

    Give your placements out to those who aren't sure whether or not they want to work in journalism. And give interns free massages, for some reason that was reserved for full-time members of staff!

    Pros

    As a company it's going through a lot of change, which is great for those who are consistently innovating. Within my own team I'm given autonomy, trusted to deliver and encouraged to develop new initiatives.

    Cons

    With small teams it's sometimes difficult to strike a balance between the speed of delivery and the space to innovate. Although this is something that comes down to an individual to manage.

    Pros

    Academy - We have any Academy for learning, development and future talent. The Academy gives everyone the skills they need to do their job well. It also offers programmes such as Inspire and the Managers Programme to enhance our skills. The future talent programmes are amazing. If offers work experience, internships, apprenticeships and career talks and events.

    Benefits are very good. We have a GP on site as well as a gym, exercise studio. Bupa health care and dental plans etc.

    Its a challenging place to work that is exciting.

    You get back what you put in.

    Cons

    Location for me is OK but I would have loved it if the offices were still in Canary Wharf

    Advice to Management

    Stay focus on our business plan, vision and goals. Work together to make this happen as it will set us apart from our competitors.
