    Pros

    The managers were great... I couldn't have asked for a more supportive group of people to work with. Also, the salary is better than most other media outlets in the area.

    Cons

    There are a lot of freelancers so it seems like there's always new people coming in. Once they get there though, many stay for a while.

    Advice to Management

    I would say that they should take a more active role in monitoring and rewarding employee performance. It'd be nice if doing a particularly good job would be noticed more often.

    I have been working at ITV full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I enjoy my job, as I am lucky enough to meet some famous faces, some of which I grew up watching on TV, I know the work that I do will directly affect millions of people on a daily basis, I enjoy being a part of entertaining the nation. Plus were an international company, with loads of opportunities to go global.

    Cons

    Some negatives include; the full on working enviroment, all of the time. Not much time off, due to the full on working enviroment and also when everything goes belly up, we have to start all over again. I don't like telling celebrities they have to do a piece of content all over again :(

    Advice to Management

    Ensure staff do get there time off, because we need it!

    Pros

    Was working with a great director who was inspirational and interested in my own development. Salary was fair. Got to work on a very interesting project with lots of travel and good work-life balance.

    Cons

    I was hardly in the office so it's hard to say but i got the impression there was a lot of frustration at bureaucrats within the company holding back the more creative types. Also, there was a tendency towards dumbing down programme content that many found depressing.

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in quality programming that will encourage bright, ambitious people to stay with the company and develop instead of leaving for other industries.

    Cons

    Very big and complex place making the communication difficult and inneficient sometimes.

    Advice to Management

    Get closer to the employees to find out what is really happening instead of relying on line managers feedback

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

    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
