    I worked at Sky

    Pros

    A positive and friendly working environment with the opportunity to work with, and learn from some of the best in the business. Sky encourage a competitive approach to working which drives staff to consistently produce the best work possible.

    The opportunity to work on some high profile content and given the creative freedom to produce original and compelling TV. In an industry where people move around a lot, it's easy to see why people stay at Sky for years.

    Cons

    As with any big company, politics play a large part. In such a creative industry, Sky sometimes struggle to take a meritocratic approach. A culture of nepotism is rife and promising talent is often overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire top graduates from relevant university degrees who have a passion and drive to work in the industry.
