    Pros

    It's TV, mostly, and internet and phones, so it's easy to enjoy the products: you just watch them and use them everyday. It's a fast-paced, energetic environment, which can be tough sometimes - and there will be a few bruises along the way - but it is ultimately very rewarding. The benefits are awesome and the pay is competitive.

    Cons

    Locations tend to be a bit out of town so nights out tend to be organised rather than improvised. And you have to check what kind of commute you are taking on before you join. But if you can find somewhere convenient to live that out-of-the-way location can turn into a benefit, e.g., avoiding the worst of the city traffic.

    Advice to Management

    Both TV and marketing (which drives Sky) are going through change. Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon are all gunning for Sky in the UK and Italy. Sky management already have a plan as to how they will meet those challenges and I would never bet against them. They have a proven track record going back to the 90s.

    Associate Software Engineer Interview

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied through college or university. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Sky (London, England (UK)) in November 2013.

    Interview

    Sky Engineering Academy

    I applied online, and received further instructions a week later. I had to do a programming task home and had a week to complete it. Not the hardest thing I've done by far, but because I tried to ace it, it took me an unexpected amount of time (several afternoons).

    After this, I was appointed for a phone interview, really short, they just wanted to confirm my personal data and to make sure I understood the conditions of the position. I was then scheduled for an assessment day, in which I was required to work with other candidates over the day. We would have people looking at what we were doing for the whole duration, but they were friendly and even offered help at times.

    The tasks we were asked to do collectively were really fun, with even robots involved! The atmosphere was really friendly the whole time, I can't stress this enough.

    There was also a small 1:1 interview in which they asked the usual personal questions (what is your worst defect etc...).

    At the end of the day, they guided us through their campus and installations and let us talk with current employees to ask anything we wanted without anyone overlooking what questions we were asking.

    Overall I couldn't be more impressed.

    Interview Questions

    • There weren't any hard questions, some of the candidates were not computer scientists and had little experience as programmers, although they had impressive backgrounds from top universities. They were much more interested in our attitude than our skills.   Answer Question

    Negotiation

    Salary was made clear since beginning, didn't negotiate.
