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

    Pros

    They hire great people. There is an ethos of striving for better. There are also great perks!

    Cons

    The location in London is zone 4. The company is now so large that some departments have had to be moved off-site which lessens the feeling of community.

    Advice to Management

    Keep allowing people to thrive by moving around departments. This provides fresh opportunities within the same company

    I worked at Sky full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has the capacity to be a fun and dynamic place to work.

    Cons

    There is often a blame culture leading to a climate of fear of making mistakes. Staff arent given praise for doing a job well, but hear when they don't. Pressure to get the job done is often quite intense leading to expectations that staff will do additional hours (often without pay) and frequent weekends.

    Advice to Management

    Show appreciation for jobs well done. Learn from past mistakes and hire sufficient staff to do the job well in the time allowed.
