    I have been working at Emap full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The editors are very professional and easy to work with, the work life balance is pretty good and the office location (in Shoreditch) is convenient. We get free fruit twice a week too, which is nice, and there is a pleasant atmosphere in the office.

    Cons

    The pension offer is horrendous - the absolute minimum. Most employees are young so don't realise how bad it is.
