    Pros

    Well funded technology development program. Provided ample resources to support project goals. Fun atmosphere most of the time. Caring and constructive managers who took great interest in personal development.

    Cons

    Slow technology development hampered some progress. Cross-functional teams could communicate better and more. Needed to set better overall organization of project goals to best focus resources.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to develop the talents of individuals and to give them room to grow. Foster more communication between development teams in different areas.

    I worked as an intern at a small office in Latin America. The people were excellent professionals, talented and ethical.

    The office lacked resources to operate more efficiently, which made for an overly heavy workload.

    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 Management

    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.

    Pros

    Every day was different. The staff are what make it great.

    Cons

    A bit of an 'Old Boy's Club'

    Advice to Management

    Speak to and listen to your employees. The middle and lower paid staff work hard and are often not recognized.

    Please consider serious management training. Most execs don't know how to even treat their employees or run a team.
