middle management & lack of security due to short term contracts(in 6 reviews)
Pros – Short-term contract allowed me to gain experience and make contacts whilst studying at University.
Cons – Unfortunately the TV programme wasn't broadcasted due to editorial changes.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Well known brand, makes you feel important, looks good from outside. The buildings are nice and stylish to work within. You can work on great programmes/productions.
Cons – Low pay, VERY hard to progress, long hours and pressurised.
Short contracts and uncertainty about your job. No permanent roles therefore you cant plan a stable future financially.
8/10 they know who they want for a job role but will still go through interview processes. So do some research into the area or position your applying for. It got to the point where I would ask beforehand if they 'already had someone in mind'.
Get lots and lots of experience and connections behind you.
Advice to Senior Management – Nothing.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Comparatively big budgets, respected and trusted broadcaster
Cons – Corporate nonsense, lots of competition means managers let you fight it out for promotion rather than nurture you
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
