      Pros

      I've worked at Channel 4 for many years and to receive a note from your CEO praising you for your continued work and engagement and for your service was just a really nice touch. It doesn't take a lot for these things to happen but it meant a lot and I really appreciated it.

      Cons

      Nothing, my overall package is good, my engagement with my senior managers are good, great opportunity to own projects and to manage my own development.

      Great place to work

      Aug 9, 2021 - Human Resources in London, England

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Excellent colleagues who care about the remit and are passionate about the Channel and its purpose. Good benefits, 50/50 work from home/office split & 10% annual bonus. Staff are well looked after, the response to the pandemic has been great with managers putting staff wellbeing as a priority. Good, clear new company strategy 'Future4' that we can work towards.

      Cons

      Can be a lack of progression in some departments, people want to stay for a long time as its a great place to work so there's not always opportunities that come available. Salaries could be slightly more competitive (but benefits and company culture help this)
