The place to be

I had to resign as I moved to Cape Town, but I would do anything to get back into the Media especially MEDIA24. I have ten years experience at this unbelievable company. A day at work was always fun and busy. I have learned almost everything I know today and worked with the best and top Management. The culture was diverse.

Crippling corporate culture for a media company struggling with evolution. Hyper competitive, shifting areas of focus with limited patience for interventions that don't show immediate results. Financial reward reflects the pressure.

The best placed I have ever worked for.

Excellent company to work for. I have started my career at Media24 and had three different positions after that. However there are/were some challenges but I believe its how you approach certain things, deal with it and move on. I personally feel their are certain aspect tnat they still need to address but my overall experience was truly a blessing.

The colleagues and the actual work made these jobs

During my 24 years and two months in two different jobs in Media24 what made the jobs so much fun that no work shift ever felt like work were the colleagues and the actual work we did, which felt like having a work shift long visit with one's mates who are cleverer than you and by the end of the visit you all have accidentally made the next day's newspaper or a contribution to it. HR is so useless that it basically exists to make work for itself and the langauge, spelling and grammar in the internal emails for and by HR are frightfully bad. They could have done with a sub-editor and a revise editor or more htan one of each in HR. Instead they retrenched very many of the sub-editors the commpany had in 2020. The company did not take skills development of their existing staff at all seriously, farming it out by making everybody in the company take mandatory, irrelevant Udemy courses.
