I worked at Sky full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

* good benefits
* good on CV
* great colleagues
* interesting projects (if you're lucky)
* flexible working time (if you're lucky)
* not that bad pay

Cons

* lack of technical direction
* CYA change management
* blame culture
* silosed teams
* useless HR
* high stress environment
* constant political games
* clueless senior management
* unrealistic project timelines
* company run by beancounters
* repeatedly poor internal survey scores for management
* good people are quite often staying only because of current lack of opportunities somewhere else

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Change. Empower people. Start thinking about more than short-term budget targets. And actually try to make it 'Great place to work' (instead of pretending).

    Pros

    agile, fast paced, exciting. Great brand in the UK, growing internationally

    Cons

    location, compensation can be on the low side, could be a bit more structure but without impacting the pace and dynamic nature of the organisation.
