Economist (Former Employee) –  London25 November 2018
Here I was able to gauge how a journalist engages in work and how they format their articles. I learnt a fair amount about the inner workings of the company.
Pros
Relaxed environment
Cons
Limited breaks

Junior IT Technician (Former Employee) –  Cabot square, Canary Wharf, Greater London5 July 2017
The economist group at Cabot square is situated in an amazing place with amazing views, the staff are very polite and happy, the work environment is very comfortable and there are many perks of working at this wonderful place, the kitchen is fully stocked with snacks, cereals, coffee and more.

During work hours the place tends to be quiet as the employees work away and the conference rooms are nicely set out for visitors or Google conference calls for meetings, etc.

The economist is full of lovely and great people and a great place to work.

I cannot really give a full overview of the economist group as I only did work experience there for only a week but if I could I would go back and work at the economist group as it would be a marvellous place to work at.
Pros
Got £5 a day to spend on lunch, comfortable work environment, has a kitchen stocked with snacks and cereal etc.
Cons
Quite easy to get lost around the building as the building is quite big and almost like a maze.
