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.

    Former Contractor - Video Journalist in London, England (UK)

    I worked at Telegraph Media Group as a contractor (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    I work freelance on assignment outside the UK and my own opinions on how to pursue a story have always been respected by commissioning editors.

    Cons

    Producing a story inevitably takes longer than the time for which commissioning editors are willing to pay.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognise that video stories with high production values do take time to edit. This extra time is often rewarded with a greater number of viewers.

    I worked at Telegraph Media Group

    Pros

    A decent CO builder and a reputable paper.

    Cons

    Receiving my pay on time if at all was a massive hassle. As a company they don't seem to care much about their work force.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort the pay structure out and look after interns and new staff better.
