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.

Theres so much room to grow in this company. At times it can be extremely stressful to work in such a fast paced company but there's always help and you are always acknowledged and rewarded for your hard work

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

I really enjoyed working at Media24. Everybody is happy at work, talented, driven and hardworking.

A typical day at work is a mix of rushes to meet deadlines and slow times with laughs between colleagues.


I learned a lot about conceptualising marketing campaigns and about Adobe InDesign.


Management and my co-workers all got along and there were open lines of communication.


The hardest part of the job was negotiating with clients between changes they insist on and the magazines house styles.


The most enjoyable part of the job was everything else.
Pros
A very nice work atmosphere
Cons
The salary was not enough

I work with really sharp people and individuals who try to push through bureaucracy and do that right thing. Pay is good, vacation is unlimited,, and a lot of trust is given to employees. I feel like I am on a team with my manager rather than it just being someone I report to at the company.
Pros
Good Security Benifits
Cons
limited growth

A typical day at work is very busy, I am the Executive Personal Assistant to 3 Exco Members - GM for Pamphlets, GM for Media Sales and Logistics as well as for the Head of the HR department.

Members of the management team are always travelling and we have to book and keep track of meetings and deadlines on a daily basis.


The Company strives for a transparent workplace, meaning that they will be as open with employees as possible at all times.


The hardest part of the job is that even though it is fast-paced and plans can change at a minute's notice, that there is no room for growth within this specific department or in the company as a whole at the moment as they are busy restructuring and retrenching.


The most enjoyable part of my job are the people I get to interact with on a daily basis, my managers are very understanding and flexible and the staff have become my family. We treat each other with respect and care.
Pros
Good Benefits - Eg. DSTV Staff Discount etc
Cons
No job stability - lots of retrenchments & little room for growth

We work hard, but learn something new every day. We have opportunities such as to apply for study bursaries and management development programs. My co-workers are delightful. Getting people to conform to governance rules is hard, but resolving problems and making enhancements possible are the most enjoyable part of the job.
Pros
Study bursary
Cons
Long hours

A day at work is very busy filled with fun here and there. I learned that two heads are better than one and three heads are better than two.Management is friendly formal and sometimes cool. The best about the team I worked with was the team spirit and how we functioned as one to fulfill a purpose and common goal. I must say the hardest part of the job was not knowing what was going on at any given time,communication between management and the employees were poor.
Pros
Huge commision brackets
Cons
Communication

My day is full of deadlines and walkins from staff needing personnel information.

Clients come first and I need to keep myself up to date with staff benefits and terminology. Being proactive helps a lot.


Management is well and okay - open door policy. docs signed within deadline periods.


I work with a hardworking and lovely team and helpfull too.


Recruiting rare talent, month end and annual increase time as well as KPA times - everybdoy is anxious to get everything right. Systems too we need to keep them in check.


Month end again when all staff is paid with no queries especially new employees. Organising Wellness Days and attending HR Functions with other groups within the company.
Pros
Training and staff discounts
Cons
Very short deadlines
