    Irrelevant (2010-2011)

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsTries hard to become value for money for investors

    ConsDoes not invest into innovation, British talent or quality.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCutting the workforce and demanding staff to become more efficient at their jobs does not make you a market leader. Be a leader in making quality programming rather than lowest common denominator shows and be a leader in investing into quality rather than seeking cheap shortcuts.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Frustration!

    Producer (Former Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsThe people! When technology brakes down or clients are annoying it's the people there that pull you through and put a smile on your face.

    ConsToo many bad decisions made by upper management. No time given for changes to take effect. Too many re-structures that are never allowed to settle. Not much scope for thinking outside the box. Impossible to get new projects off the ground.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNeed to be more innovative and take more creative risks! Especially in digital...
