Enjoyable work space, open office makes the team feel large but always helpful. Great balance of sociable and hard working teams to make sure the job is done right in the best way.

if you fit in as part of the club you are fine, but raise your head above the water to speak about an issue and they will find a way of getting rid of you.

No development of careers unless you do it yourself. Only seems to praise salespeople no one else.


Issues with bullying that get ignored, one of the worst media companies i have ever worked for.
Pros
salary/benefits
Cons
management, lack of managment direction, no development of careers.

When I began I was a replacement fill in for when someone wasn't in meaning my life was harder when doing the job as each time I was called to do a job I had to basically learn a new area and study what street was what just in case I ever did this route again.

Very fast passing, stressful working conditions. Micro-management, you feel under pressure all the time. No endorsment or support from the management, you have to deliver or you can go! If you want to work in warm, friendly team.... It is not the place for you.

I worked there for 7 years. It's an amazing place to learn and grow. There are always new opportunities to learn and try things. It's a bit mad, but every successful business is.

I worked an awful lot on my own initiative, following a demanding daily schedule, hitting deadlines, beating the opposition, and required terrific backup from the professionals in the office which I received on a daily basis. The hardest part of the job was the isolation, and the grind of travelling but I got used to it. Writing for The Times was a fabulous moment in my career - I stayed there 12 years.
Pros
International travel, reputation of the company
Cons
Long hours - usual for a journalist

I only worked with News UK for a week because I was there for work experience but for only working there for a short amount of time I was able to have a brief inside into what it was like to work for a major UK newspaper e.g. The Times,The Sunday Times and The sun. I really enjoyed working there. I found it very productive and I also realised I was learning so much while also enjoying myself.
Pros
pleasant working experience

I worked at News on the events Floor for 2 years. I met lots of celebrities and politicians (some good, some bad) worked extremely long hours on events but loved every minute of it. I got pregnant AND EVERYTHING CHANGED...
Suddenly i was pushed into a new role on the ground floor reception and treated terribly by the News UK facilities director and her close team. She had a terrible reputation and i found it all to be true. Was a real shame as apart from her the role is great.
Pros
exciting, fast moving
Cons
The senior staff

A large organisation struggling to keep up with the modern world. It has a huge amount of skilled people who work there who bravely struggle to make what they do relevant in the modern world. Looks after the staff very well.
