private:sheology Apr 2nd, 2021 12:00AM Open Open Sheology Staff Writer Avoid at all costs Made incredible friends for life within the company and worked with brilliant brands. It is going to be a long list. Bullying, micromanagement and dishonesty are a regular in Sheology. The positives reviews here are written by management. If you do work for this company, get ready to be recorded via their hidden webcam. If you're asked for a coffee, be prepared to be torn to pieces as they smile and slip their coffee. Your private messages will be screenshot and sent to senior management. Your social media profiles will be stalked on the daily and you will get calls or snide comments made if there is anything they don't like. If you're a brand working with Sheology, just be aware that the products you give journalists don't actually go to them, but instead sit on a famous shelf behind senior management. They are shared out at Christmas amongst everyone, despite the editorial staff being paid pennies. I could go on but the biggest issue was senior management having a mole on teams, that would actively sack or push people to quit by making their life hell. -1.0 NEGATIVE -1.0 NEGATIVE 0.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1538935 Open Step away from the websites and your staff.

private:sheology Feb 17th, 2021 12:00AM Open Open Sheology Digital Media Staff Dublin, Dublin Horrendous place to work - worst company culture ever. AVOID You make great friends with fellow team members when management creates such a toxic environment I suppose Where to begin - first of all the pay is well below the industry average. The company preys on people coming straight out of college by offering a competitive internship programme which does often turn into a contract role, but this suits the needs of the company as staff have no prior experience as to what it is like to work in an actual professional environment. Management was hugely toxic and created an opressive, divisive environment. Staff are directly asked not to communicate with one another so that discrepancies in how people are treated are not uncovered. Very valuable staff members are treated so poorly, made to feel like they are lucky to have a job and slated by upper management despite being hugely important to the company - this is a psychological move by management to undermine staff and give them imposter syndrome so they work even harder. There is constant secrecy regarding how the company is performing and deliverables promised to clients are massively inflated and can never be reached - the blame is then placed on staffers despite upper management being the ones who made the unrealistic promises to clients. Also, I invite you to look through the brand's various social media platforms and have a look at the follower/engagement ratios - you'll certainly find some discrepancies. Editorial staff members are told their jobs can easily be replaced by algorithms so that they feel lucky to have their jobs. Any public relations professionals reading this please know that the items you send journalists to review go to a "shelf" where upper management take things at their leisure. Journalists are asked to write articles about these items without ever using them. God forbid you open a makeup item or take up a PR's offer to attend an event - you will be accused of "stealing from the company." The freebies often go in the pockets of upper management member's friends, clients and children, before whatever is left at the end of the year being divvied out among all staff members. Don't expect a Christmas bonus, expect a bag of expired makeup and nappies. This is one of those companies that will say "hey guys, we're getting pizza on Friday" as some kind of incentive, but they expect you to destroy your mental health and work your fingers to the bone all week and then act like your bosses are the best people in the world for ordering a bumper deal from the local pizzeria. Client services and upper management have the idea that anyone can be a journalist and expect writers to create an exorbinant amount of commercial work without understanding the need for organic editorial content to pad it out, and then wonder why the sites perform so poorly. STAFF TURNOVER IS INSANE. People quit (or are the victim of having to quit after being bullied into it) and are "made redundant" but not given appropriate compensation for the redundancy, and are then replaced immediately by a more junior person who is clearly accepting a lower salary than you were. To the women reading this who currently work there, please get out before working there destroys your self esteem, your mental health and your professional reputation. The company is seen as a joke by the wider industry and the time you serve there will not do anything for your CV. Also despite being a hub of parenting websites they do not offer health benefits or maternity compensation. People have been "made redundant" directly after returning from mat leave. Oh also you will be asked to write fake positive reviews on this website to drown out the honest ones which is quite mortifying. -1.0 NEGATIVE -1.0 NEGATIVE 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1.0 1538935 Open Hmmm my advice to management is go to therapy. There is clearly something wrong with each of you if you would treat people below you on the corporate ladder in such a horrendous, toxic way. Allow editorial staff to do their jobs properly and stop stunting them when they try to better the integrity of the websites. One of the highest management members once asked me what journalistic integrity was when I told him that creating a piece of morally corrupt content to suit his agenda was a breach of my journalistic integrity. I would advise you to be knowledgable about the profession of journalism if you're going to run a media company. I would also advise you to be honest to clients and PRs about the prospective reach of your websites. 0.0 [] REGULAR No No 1.0 Apr 18th, 2021 09:09PM Apr 18th, 2021 09:09PM Sheology

private:sheology Jul 23rd, 2019 12:00AM Open Open Sheology Very inconsistent with no transparency Lovely people who made the work very enjoyable, and a good sense of teamwork from the staff - everyone generally rows in to help when they can. The lack of transparency and trust from management was very obvious from the start - it was painfully obvious they didn't trust anyone - this made new employees feel very uncomfortable and unsure in their positions, from observations. There was a definite sense of paranoia from those in management - constant whispering in corners about various members of staff (past and present) - which made the atmosphere at times, extremely tense. Goalposts changed constantly (often daily) and some members of management have appaling attitudes, speaking to younger members of staff in manners which would not be tolerated anywhere else. Bullying tactics to try and push people out and instilling a sense of fear in some team members (feeling as if they'll lose their jobs) if they don't get 'on side' with upper management and report to them the workings of the sub-teams. Little respect for anyone's work. -1.0 NEGATIVE -1.0 NEGATIVE 0.0 2.0 2.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1538935 Open Trust your staff.

private:sheology Aug 25th, 2018 12:00AM Open Open Sheology What is wrong with you? I worked as an intern here. There were some nice, skilled people. The food in the office was great thanks, occasionally you got the odd free lipstick. There’s a lot of going away parties so I guess that counts as team bonding? It was a good way to build up a portfolio. And even better way to get a taste of how low the industry can go. Read on...! There’s a lot to delve into so I’ll try to keep it brief. The management are in over their heads. They really haven’t a clue about social media or female oriented content. They don’t appreciate input from plucky interns or young upstarts. There was a real air of fear when I worked here. People were afraid to rock the boat and in some cases, afraid to excel lest they upstaged somebody. People were often dismissed without a proper procedure. You have the feeling that your bosses are constantly on tenterhooks and that begins to affect the level of creative control/freedom you have. There’s a high staff turnover. I met some excellent professionals here who left in drips and drabs for various reasons and thankfully have gone on to better. There’s very little loyalty. I wouldn’t recommend anyone seek validation here. THE WORST The disgusting bullying by some members of staff. I witnessed some truly callous behavior by more senior staff and bullying via email, social exclusion, passive aggressive remarks. It’s from the top. How some people can actually represent the brand with the horrible way they treat people and interact is beyond me. I feared for some of my colleagues mental health. it’s a family-run company with three female-focused websites (two aimed at mums). The divide of their supposed ethos with the way they actually treat people is comically vast. Cynical to its core. 5.0 1.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1538935 Open Stop treating your staff so horribly. The lack of respect, bullying and micromanaging I saw is illegal at best. Look up “constructive dismissal”. 0.0 [] No No 0.0 Apr 18th, 2021 09:09PM Apr 18th, 2021 09:09PM Sheology
