      Cons

      Hard to progress from freelance sub-editor to staff sub-editor. Staff sub-editor roles are rare compared to mid-level and senior production roles. Another round of voluntary redundancies to be offered soon (2016)

      Former Employee, more than 3 years

      Management don't know what they are doing

      Pros

      Working with great editorial staff and developers. Good people Had good benefits Recognised UNION.

      Cons

      Redundancies, cuts, the last year since last summer very bad atmosphere, good and valuable people left, especially from IT and good and journalists. The new Editor in Chief doesn't know how to manage seems not to have a voice and the CEO is just selfish, no real strategy, no real plan.
