    Pros

    It is the BBC. People recognize the brand. Amazing content. Great, free insurance.

    Cons

    Working in the Latin American division is like working in Latin America. Small cliques, tons of gossip, some managers are amazing while others are terrible, no management training for those desperately needing it, Human Resources in New York is useless. It is a revolving door. The pay is terrible. People come in with a positive attitude until they realize that they've landed in a third-world country.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the good employees and stop giving promotions to those that kiss up.

    Pros

    Nice people. The politics are much less cut throat or competitive compared to U.S. entertainment studios and media corps

    Cons

    BBC's public service background pervades even the for-profit BBC Worldwide division. appears old school Britain pervades and People are often promoted based on popularity. You need to live in UK to get serious promotions, of course. There is a lack of hardcore focus on revenue and surpassing media competitiors.There are non sensical procedures, endless layers of bureaucracy, riduculous low per diems when traveling mean youre eating fastfood and losing money when traveling for work. Things like in order to expense mileage you must attach a certificate of car insurance that states your insurance covers you for business use. Very Poor on-boarding for new employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Think and act like a major media company not a public service broadcaster?
