Still the best place for journalism

Editor (Former Employee)
London, England (UK)

I worked at BBC full-time for more than 10 years

ProsGreat working opportunities -but, most of all, enjoyed the constant editorial discussions and (often difficult) decisions in an environment that gives journalist the breathing space to think.

ConsFollowing the "Killigan affair" a government attack on BBC's editorial values has eroded its structure and made the above mentioned breathing space narrower.

Advice to Senior ManagementFollow the lead of some of your predecessors and challenge common wisdom and create space for irreverent creativity.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
