    Great projects, worth a freelance contract or two.

    Production - ITV Studios (Former Employee)

    ProsHousehold name, get to contribute to some great projects and work with colleagues very passionate about television. Southbank is a wonderful building to work in and some roles get to use Apple computers.

    ConsExtremely awkward internal business systems, no career development and salaries 15% below market rates. Handful of people in key management positions have worked for ITV companies 20+ years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCareer development, despite all the rhetoric from the board room, does not exists at ITV.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustration!

    Producer (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe people! When technology brakes down or clients are annoying it's the people there that pull you through and put a smile on your face.

    ConsToo many bad decisions made by upper management. No time given for changes to take effect. Too many re-structures that are never allowed to settle. Not much scope for thinking outside the box. Impossible to get new projects off the ground.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more innovative and take more creative risks! Especially in digital...

    Nice people, interesting work, but disorganised forgotten department

    Graphic Designer (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsInteresting work, good variety of internal communications and TV show related design projects. Creative freedom on most projects. Friendly work colleagues.

    ConsVery disorganised at the time I worked there, feeling the design department had drifted from the organisation. Poor workspace and morale, not much communication with other design departments. However I believe this has changed and in recent years and they have a new focused internal design studio.
