    I have been working at The Telegraph full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    An innovative subscription-first strategy that is working and delivering beyond expectations. Has weathered the current economic storm and is performing well. Positive and supportive company culture. The business does it's best to treat its people well and support them in adversity.

    Cons

    Lots of change at the top of the organisation and a lack of transparency when changes are made. The editorial angle doesn't always align with the direction of the business, which causes conflict and prevents real progress. Career progression is strong in some parts of the business but not in all.

    Pros

    A quality national newspaper, fun to feel like you're part of the action

    If you want to get ahead, you'd better be prepared to spend your free time drinking with colleagues. Editorial quality has declined over the years.

    I have been working at The Telegraph full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Some talented hard working genuinely nice colleagues,

    Cons

    Toxic & is run by stale white men who look after themselves. No progression, development or prospects for anyone apart from a tiny elite group. Bullying old school male culture, lip service to D&I but it’s window dressing with no action.
