Daily newspaper about average

A typical day at work involves editing of staff-written articles and occasional wire service rewriting. Also writing of headlines and captions.Upper management seems unconcerned with its employees and treats them as if they are interchangeable parts. Cafeteria was provided because there were no restaurants nearby. Work hours were consistent -- 10am to 6pm, Monday to Friday. Co-workers are pleasant. The hardest part of the job is daily deadlines. The job is at its best when people comment on information they've gained through the publications.

Pros

Consistent hours, constantly challenging, reasonably good health insurance

Cons

Raises are few and far between, retirement required at age 60

So much potential, but lacking in leadership and strategy

It should be HK's hometown newspaper but is so caught up in commercialization that it neglects it's local constituency. It should also be the NYT of Asia if it worked better to produce original, confident reporting of reporting. Top managers are pro-China and do not balance their stories. Young journalists aren't taught or encouraged to improve leaving over-worked subeditors to improve/re-write stories. There are a few bright, shining examples of professional journalists who are hungry to tell Hong Kong's stories and I hope they are able to grow but sadly I am not encourage by the recent purchase of the SCMP by Alibaba to bring it into China's sphere of influence.

Pros

video production

Cons

management lacking in strategy

Watch your back

While great for the resume and a good place to better your skill set, I highly advise that you only see the SCMP as a stepping stone to better jobs after 2 years there.

Pros

Good for the resume

Cons

Office politics makes you wish you had 360 degree vision.

Challenging and fun

I great place to start your career. Supportive colleagues and superiors. Outside the department the company is a less congenial filled with stereotypical office colleagues who would do very well as politicians.

Pros

Good for the resume

Cons

Office politics makes you wish you had 360 degree vision.
