    I have been working at Sky full-time

    Pros

    Great people. There is an ethos for 'Believing in better'. Great perks, cheap gym, lots of celebs. Chance to work on products used by millions of customers each day.

    Cons

    Location. There is often a blame culture leading to a climate of fear of making mistakes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to allow employees to thrive by moving around departments. This provides fresh opportunities within the same company. Organise more events across sales and marketing to discuss the numbers and give a business update/presentation of products and services on offer to customers.

    Current Employee - Technology Graduate in London, England (UK)
    Current Employee - Technology Graduate in London, England (UK)

    I have been working at Sky full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    I have had a great experience on the Technology Graduate Programme so far. There are few companies that could give you exposure to such a diverse range of technologies over a two year programme. As well as the standard web, mobile, and networking technologies there are opportunities to get involved in broadcast and ISP projects that you simply wouldn't get in a standard IT job. There is good access to senior management and a real commitment to innovation, doing the right thing, and the Bigger Picture Programme which is really nice to see from a FTSE 100 company. The graduate salary is very competitive and the benefits are great (Free Sky+HD, Broadband, Health Insurance to name a few)

    Cons

    It can sometimes be a little slow when you first begin a new rotation whilst you familiarise yourself with the project and build up enough responsibility to do important work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep investing in graduate resource! We will deliver value with our innovative ideas, flexibility, and network power gained from rotating through departments.
