    Low pay and little progression

    Production Assistant (Current Employee) Salford, North West England, England (UK)

    ProsWell 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.

    ConsLow 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 ManagementNothing.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Creative Freedom, so many other restrictions

    Executive Producer (Current Employee) Salford, North West England, England (UK)

    ProsComparatively big budgets, respected and trusted broadcaster

    ConsCorporate 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
