    I worked at SBS full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly people, little pressure, opportunity to move to other areas, freedom to push your own creative projects / ideas. Social life is good, departments often organise drinks and outings.

    Cons

    Perhaps too relaxed, lack of pressure sometimes leads to low level performance. Some departments appear to be less happy than others.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -stop trying to turn SBS into another commercial broadcaster or an ethnic ABC

    I worked at SBS

    Pros

    Some really innovative thinkers pushing the multicultural mandate.

    Cons

    A very fixed public service mentality among the majority of staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay focused on the charter. Australia doesn't need another commercial network.
