    I worked at BBC full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Intellectually stimulating environment where you are working on big picture problems. Great work life balance. Nice to work for a company with such a positive mission and societal impact.

    Cons

    Very slow and bureaucratic. Often feels like the work you're doing doesn't have much impact. Career progression is difficult, especially if you're not a 'creative'. The content-creation side of the business is very separate from the corporate / business side, and so you have to work to gain credibility and trust.

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at BBC for more than 4 years

      Pros

      Wonderful, talented, hard-working colleagues; integrity of the BBC brand, good resume booster, great benefits (free healthcare + generous vacation time), fair hours (standard 9-5 or 10-6, rare in NY media)

      Cons

      Bureaucracy hurts growth, not enough opportunities for career advancement, BBC doesn't invest in editorial staff, low/stagnant pay

      Advice to Management

      Give your employees what they need to excel in their jobs and you will see retention and employee productivity will go through the roof.
