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

Analysed, productive and exciting
A typical day at work is reaching your daily targets and making sure payments are made before deadlines. Our management allows us to be free around the work place and always give's advice on work related matters.My co-workers are wonderful, they are kind and they always support each other through professional and personal issues.
The hardest part about the job is when you don't reach your monthly targets and a meeting is held where you have to discuss the reason for not reaching your targets. The fun thing about the work is that you can be yourself and there are also fun events that takes place regularly.

Loved working here
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

Fun Plaxe to work at
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

Productive, fun and energetic workplace
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

I enjoy working at Media24
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
