    Pros

    The BBC does.projects nobody else would do. That means you get opportinities to work on content that will make you proud.

    Cons

    It's a very hierarchical organisation, and at a certain point you are pushed into management and away from creativity for advancement.

    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at BBC

    Pros

    Good training, interesting work and very relaxed culture means than you have a chance to learn great things and freedom to flourish

    Cons

    Large corporate structure can be unwieldy at times making the job more difficult. For example it took us 3 months just to get a whiteboard

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove red tape around purchasing essential tools for people's jobs so that it doesn't cost lots of money to pay people to jump through hoops.
