  1. "London office is a true gem in a sea of The Devil Wears Prada employees"

    I have been working at Womens Wear Daily for more than a year

    Pros

    The London office is fantastic if you want to learn the trade from some of the best journalists (the Chief Bureau and the European Editor). Aside from the fashion director that fly in from their headquarters in the US - more fashion attitude than real substance - the journalists, photographers and editors that work there are true professionals. A rarity in fashion magazines.

    Cons

    It's very old school. Also, the US team of editors that run overseas shows is a tad "too wannabe and dramatic" from what is needed. Being the European offices very small, and with not a lot of career progression, people are comfortable staying where they are in the same position for years.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps become a bit more agile, and start embracing the pace of a media company instead of a newspaper that's trying out to survive online.

    Pros

    Opportunities to grow as a young journalist learning from seasoned and generous editors

    Cons

    Lack of structure, fair compensation /budget distribution and management support. Also no strategy for social media, marketing, digital to stay competitive so loosing relevance.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the right people and get rid of anyone who's been with the company for more than 20 years and isn't willing to adapt.

    I have been working at Womens Wear Daily full-time

    Pros

    Its the third job I've had and its the best workplace I've experienced so far

    Cons

    Legacy publication that is still struggling to navigate digital, not accelerating to online as fast as it could

    Advice to Management

    Hire more web producers (focus on promoting the amount of content currently produced instead of hiring new reporters to produce more content that ends up buried and is not moving the needle) and grow the email newsletters
