    I worked at Sky full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Free Sky, Free Tetley tea/coffee

    Cons

    Big aggression culture - staff are bullied by management to get things done "whatever it takes" - quality is ignored in favour of just get it done! Plenty of weekend and late night working - usually unpaid. Yearly reviews were pointless and did not relate to reality - there was no performance bonus aspect to my pay - and the score given at the end of the year was predetermined based on budget. It was an in joke that the 'People Portal' was a complete waste of space.

    Huge pay disparities within teams for similar work - some get bonuses others don't - this just creates bad feeling among-st staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Massive cultural changes need to be made in my particular business unit - I'm talking about a complete management re-organisation - afterall you can't polish a turd.
