      Pros

      Strong company values. The CEO and Editor in Chief do a good job of sharing information at key points. Nice office space. Get to work with modern technology. Some truly talented and passionate people.

      Cons

      Many people are poor performers but it’s never challenged. There are a number of strong individuals who just end up taking the strain, but this isn’t sustainable and is resulting in good people leaving. Nothing is written down making it impossible to ramp up new starters and keep track of progress. Senior management micro-manage and are comfortable making decisions without data to back them up.

      Pros

      Nice relaxed culture with a few good people. Offices are very nice. Work was challenging at times with varied projects/programs.

      Cons

      To many long term employees that do no work and a lack of strong senior management has led to complacency. Very much an attitude of "if it ain't broke don't fix it".

      Pros

      Fantastic people to work with from a commercial perspective. Great brand to talk to advertisers about, very interesting business.

      Cons

      Hugely political, un-collaborative, poor senior management, lack of leadership, no coherent vision or strategy for the future. In the midst of a civil war...
