    I worked at ITV full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    exposure to a wide range of scenarios and issues, from live broadcasts, to the salesfloor, studios and standard office environment. fantastic mix of people within the company, great buzz about the place

    Cons

    pay of average for the sector, clearly media is not a high paying sector though.

    I worked at ITV full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great culture, care for their people, desire to do well but sometime let down by having wrong senior people in charge. Salary was great.

    Cons

    If only they followed the ideas that matched their ambition with people who could deliver them. It would be perfect. ITV's failings have in my opinion always centred around having the wrong people in key positions. I know of one hire that led to 5 high quality people leaving.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you hire your senior managers who are not megalomaniacs. Junior staff are generally very high quality relative to other organisations. We need the top people to be better who understand how to manage people and understand it is not about them or their ego. Anyone with a big ego should never be employed.

    I have been working at ITV full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    With a very satisfactory work-life balance, meritocratic office culture and a very broad training infrastructure, ITV provides all the requirements for a professional fulfillment.

    Cons

    While the entry-level compensation may seem a bit lower that what could be seen elsewhere, there is a steady and fair review and increase in salary in proportion to time spent there.

    Advice to Management

    Be a little more active in recruitment - ITV is a great company to work for, but it is hard to find the job postings

    I worked at ITV as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Very friendly working environment across all the different teams for different shows. You get to meet different celebs when working across the morning shows at southbank. The teams are well organised and hard working, getting all the day to day jobs done efficiently.

    Cons

    Can get boring easily with the same work load on a day to day basis (projects arent varied enough). Working equipment (mainly the windows computers) are very outdated or were when I was working there.

    Pros

    Very Friendly & Flexible environment. Easily approachable senior management.

    Cons

    Make things complex than required. Some times personal agendas take priority and as a result fail to make right decisions for the company.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks for all your efforts with the transformation program. Put some more effort to cut the bureaucracy
