Reach is a great place for juniors to become highly skilled. There are lots of talented engineers, and lots of time to learn from them. However, management render all engineering talent useless.
Pros
Great place to learn if you want to
Cons
Will not achieve anything great unless management fix up

I loved my team and was lucky enough to join The Mirror at a time when newspapers were thriving. Sadly the environment is very different now but the people remain the same and it’s a great place up work.

A typical day would be mostly computer based, inputting data, taking calls and answering emails. The staff are all very friendly and there is good office banter.

very fast paced media sales job, where things can change very quickly. No two days are the same and you get to deal with lots of different businesses within the role.

A good place to work, day to day it's pretty much the same work, but with the added extra job. Working against deadlines to meet customers needs.
Doesn't really have a sense of teamwork anymore, hardly any staff.

Poor management and really sad workplace. No diversity and people are fake. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to work in that place. The only perk is the view from the office.

As a team, we do bond well outside of work and we have regular fun planned days at work. This is mostly part-funded which helps, this does make things better at work

Very friendly and welcoming team. Excellent training also but the industry is difficult to learn to work within from within a position. More experience in sales is needed before applying for the position.

in terms of technology, Reach keeps up-to-date, good agile culture and openness to new ideas. some office politics delayed processes but an agreement can be achieved.

Newspapers and leaflets wouldn't arrive when they're supposed to.
Sorting out the leaflets took a long time so that it got dark by the time could deliver.

The time taken to deliver the route was far longer than the time allocated and paid for (large spread out houses with long drives.
Cons
Long route
