    I worked at BBC full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working here full time after college is the single most important reason I am succeeding at my current job. I cant learn well in huge training groups/ Online, but at BBC they took the time to train me in a single teacher setting so that the trainer could focus all of their efforts only on me. The team was also very friendly and made me feel like I had been part of the team for years after only my first week. I enjoy an active work environment and I was never stuck behind a desk or phone while working at BBC , every day I was learning something new.

    Cons

    Main challenge had to be getting used to putting in extra time outside to make sure I was prepared everyday. This is not a job where you can just clock in then check out mentally, one has to be ready to put in hard work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    On my first phone conversations with BBC, about pursuing a job, the young lady who I was speaking with was extremely polite yet I had difficulty understanding what she was saying due to a thick accent. I had to make a few extra phone calls just to make sure I had written down the correct information.
