My work was in Tele-Ad department and was very busy. We took advertising copy over the phone and had to be very fast typists with excellent spelling. We had to assist with layout of copy and sell advertising space for feature pages. I worked on the entertainments advertising pages for many years and while clients could be difficult I developed a good working relationship with them. It was a fun, social work environment.
Pros
4 day working week, great salary and benefits. Interesting and busy days.
Cons
Difficult clients at times

Printing plant where I worked is closed now without any consultation with staff. The company was bought over by MEDIAHUIS and they decided to close us down without even exploring the good case we had for staying open and competing with other plants.
Pros

Cons
Night work - Bank Holidays - weekends - Christmas night

Job culture
Over the course of my years I met some great like-minded people. The media sector is probably one of the most difficult to work in over the last few years but it did challenge me to think differently. There has been a big change in senior management over the last few years and this has proved difficult for the organisation and they have encountered their own challenges. There has been a big concentration in recent years of headcount reduction which doesn't help the workplace culture. The hardest part of working in an organisation of this is the constant challenge of achieving results in a declining market. The best part of the job is achieving the results given all of the challenges and difficulties.
Pros
Well-paid
Cons
Long-hours and poor work-life balance

A relaxed atmosphere where all managers are approachable and friendly. Long hours but good time off between shifts. Due to poor man management there can be lots of idle time.
Pros
Good time off
Cons
Long hours

Didn't like my 2 years of job in this company. The worst part is the lack of co-operation you get from everyone including the senior manager and HR. Left the company as soon as I had a moderate job offer from another company.
