I have been working at BBC
Pros – The BBC is a great place to work as you can ride on the back of its Stella reputation in countries all over he world. Working for such a large and well respected organization certainly opens many doors when doing research or booking guests to appear on your radio or television shows. It seems no-one is 'too big' to appear on the BBC so the content potential of what ever program you are making is at a greater advantage than if say you worked at an independent radio or television station. There are also lots of career opportunities and the flexibility to move within departments to further your career.
Cons – My problem with working for the bbc was the political correctness. When you work for the bbc you are expected to represent them twenty four hours a day seven days a week which is as I found, impossible. The slightest thing you might be overheard saying that doesn't fall into their policy or remit and boom you are out. No chance for a fair hearing or even an opportunity to explain yourself - you are just bombed out - suspended one minute fired the next without a chance to have your say or to try to put right the wrong you might have said. Very heavy handed and unfair.
Advice to Senior Management – chill out a bit and dont be so scared of offending the minority by compromising what can be reported to the majority
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
