No opinion of CEO

I worked at Arqiva full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Great team of knowledgeable engineering staff across diverse disciplines.
Good salaries and conditions of service.
Work independently and responsible for services delivering to millions of viewers and listeners in the UK

Cons

Skill set not easily transferable to other employers (too specialised)
Lots of cost focus which means the number of technical staff in the field is always under pressure, increasing demand on those that remain.
Promotion is dead mens shoes.

Advice to Management

A little more care needed dealing with field staff. Too much focus on savings in the field has led to reduced staff and increase in managers.
