    I have been working at Guardian News & Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Long term approach to editorially driven journalism. Never worked in a news room with so many experienced and talented people. A positive working environment.

    Cons

    It can be bureaucratic and frustrating. If you want a start-up media environment, given all the experienced people arond this is not necessarily for you.
