    Pros

    Sky offers such amazing opportunities for their employees, from the little perks like having free Sky to amazing colleagues. There's always space for growth, and the managers are great. sky is a company that really cares for their employees so your opinion always matter.

    Cons

    Other than having to stand on my feet for long hours there's no real cons about working for Sky Retail.

    Advice to Management

    Just keep doing the amazing job you're doing (I really tried to think of something to say here, but this was all I could come up with?)

    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fast paced environment - It's easy to make stuff happen if you try. You can have a real impact and results of your work are very measurable. The campus is unbelievable! 3 subsidised table service restaurants on site (one has a rooftop bar) and 2 canteens. New on site subsidised gym is better than normal gyms that you pay >£80/m for. Great cycle to work facilities. Huge company so you can do almost any job Development L&D website and courses are great. Great Brand - you feel proud to tell people it's where you work. You get free Sky & Internet. & Share benefits. Leadership and direction are good.

    Cons

    Occasionally very short deadlines & stress (but you get that anywhere) Sometimes because of fast pace and nultiple stakeholders you have to draft work over and over again.

    Advice to Management

    I'd love to see an organisation chart wiki. I.e. what are all the departments and teams within them. This would really help people looking at internal jobs.
