    I have been working at BBC Worldwide (More than a year)

    Pros

    Exciting place to be. An industry with lots of change, a place with lots of stability in that change. And management that are game to listen and do things differently

    Cons

    The industry is a little scary right now. Lots of change that's hard to see coming. And hard to react to

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to younger staff. They see and feel the changes. They have ideas. And they can help you to make a difference!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at BBC Worldwide (New York, NY) in September 2014.

    Interview

    It happened rather quickly for me. I was called in for an interview a week after applying for the internship position. They just wanted to get a bit more about who you are as a person when faced with problems. I interviewed with two people at the same time. It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere. Everyone is so nice. I was also impressed with the office decor - so modern! I got the internship and there are no regrets thus far. You should definitely go for it. It's not often you can say that a major corporation has a pretty relaxed atmosphere and the employees treat you like family...even though they are located in the middle of the coldest city (literally) on Earth. I was sad when my internship was over. I wasn't able to land a job right after because they weren't hiring right away due to the merge with AMC Networks. Good luck!
