    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Friendly, Laid back, innovating, Technology pushing, Teams are very collaborative, but this depends on Business area really.

    Cons

    more flexibility is needed in all departments, clear message for all departments. It is really difficult sometimes when you have to work with a team which is in another department with a different Director with different views than your department and your trying to achieve a common goal but the methods and processes sometimes don't align.

    Advice to Management

    Clear Direction for all departments. For example, consistent communication with all departments.
