    Current Employee - Assistant Producer in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at ITV full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    With a very satisfactory work-life balance, meritocratic office culture and a very broad training infrastructure, ITV provides all the requirements for a professional fulfillment.

    Cons

    While the entry-level compensation may seem a bit lower that what could be seen elsewhere, there is a steady and fair review and increase in salary in proportion to time spent there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be a little more active in recruitment - ITV is a great company to work for, but it is hard to find the job postings

    Pros

    Very Friendly & Flexible environment. Easily approachable senior management.

    Cons

    Make things complex than required. Some times personal agendas take priority and as a result fail to make right decisions for the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Thanks for all your efforts with the transformation program. Put some more effort to cut the bureaucracy

    A profitable company going from strength to strength... Shame salaries don't reflect this.

    Current Employee - Storyliner in Manchester, England (UK)

    I have been working at ITV full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The people. Some of the finest, most creative minds you could work with.

    Cons

    Personal development takes far longer here than it should - some roles feel almost unattainable until someone dies or retires!
    Salaries aren't great either - in comparison with BBC and Channel 4.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Personal development takes far longer here than it should - some roles feel almost unattainable until someone dies or retires!
    Please review salaries for those in creative roles - how can it be deemed fair that a storyliner (who creates, crafts and writes stories for some of the network's most profitable shows) is paid LESS than a PA for example? Salaries as a whole are far lower than our indie counterparts and I fear we are losing talented staff as a result as they are lured away to other networks and production companies for more money.

    Pros

    Everyone knows who ITV are, room for progression. Extremely rewarding got to work on some massive projects including the 2013 rebrand.

    Cons

    Sometimes there is lack of communication between departments and other third parties connected to ITV which can be extremely frustrating to get the job done.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Current Employee - Content Control in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at ITV full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy my job, as I am lucky enough to meet some famous faces, some of which I grew up watching on TV, I know the work that I do will directly affect millions of people on a daily basis, I enjoy being a part of entertaining the nation. Plus were an international company, with loads of opportunities to go global.

    Cons

    Some negatives include; the full on working enviroment, all of the time. Not much time off, due to the full on working enviroment and also when everything goes belly up, we have to start all over again. I don't like telling celebrities they have to do a piece of content all over again :(

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ensure staff do get there time off, because we need it!

    I have been working at ITV full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits, nice canteen area, personal development sessions available. A range of projects going on, always something new.

    Cons

    Staff are under appreciated and used as scape goats. Very little in terms of departmental development and means one person gets left in charge of a whole branch of work, meaning everything turns to chaos when they're off. Unsociable hours and changed at will without warning. Can be very disorganised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to staffs opinions about work coming in. make departments work more in a team like fashion and not let one department use others to get themselves out of trouble. Need more in house development.
