Pros

Good work/life balance, good benefits

Stressful, a lot of changes need to be able to adapt quickly.

Would not recommend

Great place to be when you're hitting your targets. The exact opposite when you're struggling no matter the cause/reason. Lots of middle management that micro manage if you're underachieving. Would not recommend unless you desperately need work.

Pros

Great opportunity to learn

Cons

No work/life balance. Very difficult to unplug.

You're not valued

If upper management is not making the big bucks. They will come down on you. Instantly. No pay raise. No understanding. You're not valued as a person

Ok

Best newspaper company to work for in canada but the middle managers are useless and micro manage to justify their existence. Lots of leeway if you hit your numbers

unproductive & very negative environment

not a good company to work for. No proper coaching and product knowledge from the management team. They have no long or short term goals. The company is losing money and they are in desperation mode.

Great job for extra cash

Not a bad job to make a bit of extra cash is not enough to pay bills though. Probably takes about 3 hours per week and make around $30 per week. Nice when weather is nice

Toxic workplace in an industry that's collapsing

This is a toxic workplace. The industry is on the verge of collapsing and management is out of ideas on how to save the company. All the good people have fled and the mediocre worked run this asylum. You can do better than working here.

Pros

Any idea is entertained

Cons

Layoffs on a quarterly basis

Fairly depressing work atmosphere

The company seemed on the brink of collapse - uninspiring management - little individuality - open concept - collaborative work space - shift work - old building - decent office location

They dont care about you. No money in the industry

If I could give the management less than one star I would. They tried to force me to return to work while off for sleep issues developed after working 12 years of 12 hour shifts weekend and holidays.

Would not recommend

There is no room for advancement. They don't do annual job reviews. No salary increases. The most enjoyable part of the job was the friendly staff and the lunch room was very large with multiple TVs set to CP24 and CNN and has an air hockey and table tennis table.

fun working place with table tennis

Big company with many branch. Management is hard due to this. Lot of meeting beside works. It is a very friendly working environment. It has table tennis for you to have fun and reduce stress at work.

Going through some tough times

It's the newspaper business. What do you expect? There's plenty of good and bad. And I can't find a way to skip this portion so am just filling out the word minimum

Forward Thinking

Transforming a traditional media business is no easy task but Postmedia lives and breathes this transition to the best of their ability everyday. Postmedia is a full service digital advertising agency that ownes Canada's largest news and information network.

A great place to work

Management backs you in taking fast paced decisions and changes happen faster than waiting. Company loves to experiment and succeed. Opportunities to learn newer stuff

Unjust Dismissal and Racism

For a news paper they are very racist. I would have other employees constantly roll their eyes, pass comments..they gathered enough crowd and let me go. I doubt any immigrants will be work here long

Did not enjoy it

I didn't enjoy my time at Postmedia. As a floundering media company their need for revenue outweighs taking care of their employees. I was unimpressed with management.

toxic spaces across the country

The glass ceiling is strong, as is the racism. Thankfully print media is dead and all this company does is sell facebook and google ads now. They have a toxic work culture with #metoo worthy leadership at the top. BC is unionized, and the Toronto office gets the national account money - but the rest of the country suffers at post media offices. DONT WORK HERE.
