It's fast paced, deadline driven but can also be relaxed.

When there are deadlines it can be a little stressful but when there aren't any, it's a nice relaxing atmosphere. The management treats the staff sometimes which is a nice touch.

Pros

Free coffee, subsidised perks

Friendly Casual, Professional and Fun

Media24 is a comoany where anyone and everyone wanted to work at. The environment was never the same, we worked hard and played just as hard, Balance was key and they made it fun. Media24 always had ways to implementing new work ethics, and they BM had open door policies. I would work there any time if given the opportunity

Fast-paced environment, quick news turnaround, deadline driven, constantly you have to be alert of breaking news. Receiving feedback about your work can either provide positive reinforcement that makes you feel valued.

Pressure and productive

My first time working there I was overwhelmed by the work but as the time goes by I got hang of it. Meeting deadlines was not an easy task bug I managed quiet well and I am thankful for the experienced I got because I was working fog a national paper. Print for me is my passion and I love telling people'stories it gives me a relief when I have help someone through my articles.

Average

Not a bad place to work at, but development opportunities were very lacking. No easy chance to work towards advancement due to flat structure. Most of management were a pleasure to work with.

Great benefits; Poor management

Great salary and benefits. Friendly employees. Management was not the best. Leadership from Management is poor with no proper mentor-ship and support.

Helpful and kind staff that works at the Lalucia Media24

The staff at Media 24 was kind enough to let me learn from them for the short duration of my school holidays. They were also very helpful with everything that I they thought was something which could help my career as a young graphic designer.

Productive and innovative

In my 5 years at Media24 I learnt a lot: how to work fast using all of your resources. The workplace culture in the Bloemfontein was very good. The hardest part of the job was to get all the information needed for my stories. The most enjoyable part was when I met a lot of different people from different backgrounds.

Pros

Good benefits

Cons

Long hours with not so fun shifts

A very fun place to be in

I learn a lot everyday just being in this company, I get to meet different people on a daily basis, which is of course exciting. a typical day at work would be getting to work early, get straight to tasks there after lunch break then knock off, along the day I'd meet different people from different departments.I enjoy engaging with people from different backgrounds the enjoyable part about the job is getting to work on stories, getting to interview experts and most of all pitching for work.

Pros

free transport to work (staff bus)

Cons

none
