    I have been working at Sky full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This place is good for starters and beginners. Free sky TV package is a plus. Charmers and sweet talkers can flourish in this muddy environment. Your work will be greatly appreciated by your manager(s) and repackaged as their original thought and work to senior managements. This showcase of work spirals all the way to the upper levels. Above all sympathy beggars can really raise the ladders of management quickly if you know how to have your manager in your pocket.

    The company will survive because of the entertainment industry segment BSkyB is into.

    Cons

    Forget about earning your place by hard-work. Forget about reasoning and non-partiality. Forget about gaining expertise for your work will be limited to run-of-the-mill type chores. Forget about individuality because as soon as you bring in some original thought, it will be plagiarised endlessly with no credit to you. Most managers are past their peaks and have nowhere else to go, so they are stuck. They will make sure you don't go anywhere also within BskyB.

    Beware of the 'Technology' division that operates out of Scotland. Rampant favouritism is the key distinguisher of this unit. They rank low in the internal people survey scores. They will establish teams to listen to your problems. These teams are just there to listen to your rants if you bother to. A report will be produced out of these action meetings. A sub-team will be established to act on those findings. They will certainly 'act'. Nothing will change. You will be frustrated. The cycle will continue endlessly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It's been a year in this company for me and I have a great lesson on how not to be good manager.
