    I worked at BBC Studios full-time

    Pros

    In the heart of Miami, beautiful office, and fantastic culture.

    Cons

    Interns do the same work as other employees but are unpaid. No lunches or other benefits are offered

    Advice to Management

    If you’re not going to pay your interns, be generous with taking them out to lunch once in a while! Especially when they’ve been responsible for your day’s workload!

    I worked at BBC Studios full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great brand, fantastic people and an excellent work/life balance.

    Cons

    Some core processes are still being formed. If you're in a satellite office (anything other than NY or London), communication can be a challenge. Team is very young, which could also be considered a pro, but tends to show in some situations. Pay will never be top of the market but is respectable.

    I worked at BBC Studios full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    - Nicely designed office
    - Young, energetic employees
    - Opportunities for learning
    - Depending on the department, there is a lot of transparency between AMC-owned networks. Meaning tools and other employees were easily accessible.

    Cons

    - Great benefits (ie - healthcare, vacation time) were lost during transition to AMC
    - Departments that once operated freely became controlled by AMC. A lot of creative-thinking employees were forced out in favor of run-of-the-mill, corporate focused managers. Company dynamic changed.

    Advice to Management

    It's been a few years since I left so perhaps the kinks have worked themselves out. Hopefully AMC-installed department heads have eased up and become less micro-managing over staffers.

    Generous benefits package. Some really wonderful, smart people. Feels good to represent a brand like BBC.

    Major hurdles in getting things done (bureaucracy). Management can be a little old-fashioned. London office can be condescending.
