    I have been working at Financial Times full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The brand is well respected. Work life balance is great. They support their employees with great internal networks

    Cons

    Still lags behind and comes across as super innovative but aren't. Pays way below the market and justifies it because they're the FT. Can be an old boys club and people get rewarded for who they know

    Advice to Management

    None because I doubt they read this and will actually make changes.

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1+ week. I interviewed at Financial Times.

    Interview

    The hiring process is simple and straight forward. Technically you have to be sound and they are very lovely in working with you on the technical interview. 5 stars for those guys.

    There is a second part of the interview for behavioural and cultural fit. That part just not be honest about any negative feedback that you once got and you improved upon. Just say you never had negative feedback. They will just focus on the negative feedback part to get a reason to dismiss you. All in all just reply with canned answers and things they want to hear instead of exposing any flaws or realities that learned to overcome through your career.

    TLDR: just lie on the second part and you’ll get the job.
