    Pros

    Fast pace and great people. Good benefits

    Cons

    Company is all about profits and pay doesn't reflect role. Many employees in our department are paid at 70% of market rate which is apparently acceptable

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    bring pay in line with market rate

    I worked at Sky full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Really enjoyed working with most people here. The majority are bright but also friendly and fun. The company has a great mix of products and its an excellent place to learn about the industry. Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Often found different areas of the business were working on similar projects without knowledge of each other. There are a lot of different job titles floating about so it was sometimes hard to judge exactly some people. Some senior executives represent the old media world and that can be challenging at times.

    Constant threat of redundancies for departments caving in. Salary not all too great.

    Conduct a salary review. I'm a manager and I make less than most.
