Featured Review

KEY NOT FOUND: companyCompare.reviews.self_employCurrent - Writer

I have been working at Guardian News & Media

Pros

Brilliant editor, really encouraging. Good rates.

Cons

Harder and harder to get a contract as a freelance writer, so not much stability.

Current Employee - Software Engineer

I have been working at The Telegraph full-time

Pros

Get treated like a grown up and allowed to do the job you’re employed to do. Flexible with remote working when required.

Cons

Teams tend to stick with teams so not necessarily the most social place to be.

Advice to Management

Maybe consider more regular pay reviews
