I have been working at BBC

Pros

THis is a great company it has many great opportunities. I feel that you should apply here. That is my thought.

Cons

It has long hours. You have to do a lot of the work independently. Also you have to work a lot given the pay. Another downside is that the commute was long.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

You are a great company. Keep up the good work. I would get a better HR department though because it is very annoying.

    I have been working at BBC as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Flexible with working hours to suit my family life.
    Listen to suggestions and opinions, even on an entry level job.
    Offer training and experiences beyond the minimum requirements

    Cons

    Contracts are fixed term which makes it harder to secure loans etc.
    Not very straight forward applying for internal jobs as I didnt come in through the Talent Pool.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The could be a better system of recognising and securing in house talent with having to always give priority to talent pool members if their skills are not as valid.

    I worked at BBC full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, career options and lots of development. Great opportunity to work across large organisation and get great experiences in world class broadcaster. Felt really proud of what the organisation produced and the opportunity to be part of it. Worked with some really great and talented people.

    Cons

    It is slow to change, and a different experience to working in a commercial organisation where the need to change and adapt is much more obvious. Also as a publicly funded organisation you have to be prepared to work under a different kind of scrutiny than a normal organisation.
