      Pros

      Fairly decent work exposure, a well-known brand for external stakeholders.

      Cons

      Lack of training and development for staff even though it is stated as one of the benefits (courses are available but the teams are so lean that you don't have time to do courses), organisation is slow to digital transformation and is still struggling, HR team doesn't work to help junior and mid-level staff, HR may ask inappropriate questions during interviews and throughout your work experience, unfair promotion standards (some editors who can't edit, and some senior lifestyle/beauty editors who can't write, etc.) - lack of proper apprasial metrics.
