Leader in the industry

It is a good place to work - and has the benefit of a wide range of outlets and platforms for journalism. However, it is difficult to advance within the organisation or to improve your pay.

productive and fun, good management

relaxed atmosphere, staff are treated well by management. Good career progression and a modest offering of training courses. Low turnover of staff and nice office space.

Well know and reputation brand


Old fashion management style.
