I worked at Telegraph Media Group

Pros

I worked at the Telegraph online department for a year and a half. It was very interesting and my colleagues were all dynamic individuals. They seemed committed to innovation and providing a top notch product.

Cons

Sometimes I felt the drive to increase website traffic clouded editorial decisions. Also, during a period of cutbacks I thought management treated the casual workers unfairly (but I may be biased).

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't compromise the caliber of the content of the website in the hunt for extra clicks.

Recommends

    I worked at Telegraph Media Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Tons of opportunities to chase stories and hone reporting skills. Interns are given a lot of responsibility and assumed to have a high competence level. Journalists in DC office are excellent and great mentors.

    Cons

    Some administrative work, but that's to be expected. Internships are not extended beyond their one semester term

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow your interns to stay with the organization and grow; offer paid internships

    I worked at Telegraph Media Group full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    New digital products
    Benefits
    Free newspaper
    Exciting to be part of a near 160-year old company
    Impressive building and useful location (Victoria).

    Cons

    No values

    Blame culture
    Underpaid, undervalued staff whilst senior management highly paid
    Cut throat.
    Internal press releases end up on Guardian website within seconds.
    No free tea and coffee!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Strategise and deliver on a defined roadmap - but allow time for enough preparation. Stop living to a deadline like a print newspaper - in the digital world it's all about being relevant all the time.
