Targets too high

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Basically, in short, OK place to work as management are brilliant. Targets unachievable. Difficult market, Basically you're cold calling businesses about marketing. But it's newspaper based. The competition us Google, almost next to impossible to overcome as Google are the masters.

Pros

Lovely dining area, free coffee etc

Cons

Targets unachievable

Going down the pan

Its a sinking ship. Redundancies left right and centre. New company owners just dont care about staffThe place used to be a good place to work. New dept manager changed that

Media Sales Exectutive

Great paid job with huge bonuses, car, expenses. As long as you work ahead of yourself, you have the freedom to do your daily tasks at home like, school pick ups etc. If you have the passion to sell and customer service skills to talk face to face with old and new customers, give it go. 8 years and enjoyed every minute.

Pros

Freedom to do your best and not be micro managed

Cons

Never know when redundancies will come up

No progression opportunities and a cliquey management team

Dependant on which department you are in, there are little to no options to progress. Management will always take the side of management and not the employee in disputes or grievances, unfairly driving people out of the job at times. HR are outrightly aggressive/defensive.Lax with personal data.Pay and bonus are decent. Generally a good overall environment until something requires solving/an issue is raised which requires HR involvement.

Pros

Decent bonus structure

Cons

Management and HR work against staff interests

Hard work with no benefits and no job security

Lots of pressures that are in every day tasks. Too much is expected from you for little to no rewards. The communication from higher powers is non existence and there is no job security due to covid

Fast paced sales environment

Worked for JPI Media/JPress for 20 years in a varitey of sales management roles. Learnt how to work to strict deadlines and across a variety of new product launches. Had to adapt to the shift from print to online and manage a team through constant change.

Pros

The people!

Cons

Declining industry

Some amazing people

A lot of great people working hard to maintain high standards and deliver great results for customers. Higher management and the board are now moving more towards cost saving then maintaining these standards.

Pros

Fantastic trusted brands & some great people

Cons

Higher management detached from the salespeople

Good atmosphere

Very positive and happy place to work with great people who have became friends for life, Tough job but very rewarding when targets are achieved. Overall highly recommend

Feels like a family

Managers are fair and always strive to help you improve. The job is fairly complex so the company don't expect you to be perfect and with this they give you all the tools you need to advance. It is an amazing place to work if you want to be celebrated for your efforts with promotions and small gestures of appreciation eg, team meals out for hitting team targets. I haven't been within the company long but they have already shown a caring and progressive attitude towards all their hard working staff.

Toxic

Toxic environment, underpaid and overworked and lied to. The staff there are constantly botching and so are the managers. Extremely unprofessional and rude

Great job

JPI media was a great job overall however the messages from the upper management team changes on a weekly basis and you are often expected to work towards a kip or sell a product only for it to change and not matter suddenly

dreadful

Company is run by money-hungry people who will sabotage you at any possible opportunity. Jobs are routinely cut short and staff are let go without much warning.
