    Good product minds, young energetic teams and great access to amazing content

    Management politics is rife, and tempers and bravado influence decision making adversely

    Advice to Management

    Drop the egos. Trust the people you have hired to do their jobs without micromanagement. Listen to what they are telling.

    Pros

    The benefits are amazing, I have made a lot of friends throughout my 6 years there. It's challenging, the harder you work the more you are rewarded. Recognition scheme, opportunity to visit other sites.

    Cons

    Yes a work life balance can be hard to achieve, but it is achievable. Yes sky want you to work hard but I have to say my hard work has always been recognised. Senior management don't really understand pressures of day to day job. No lead training and just expected to know what to do

    Advice to Management

    Start giving proper lead training, wage needs to be reviews, too many people paid differently for doing the same work
