I worked at BBC as a contractor (More than 3 years)

Pros

Knowing you're at the most respected broadcaster in the world. Inspiring colleagues will motivate and push you to create top quality work.

Cons

Can be tough to get into the company, and they generally employ form within. If you are experienced you will be up against the talent already there - who have that advantage.

Advice to Management

Take into account outside applicants, not just people from within the BBC.
Keep up the fantastic work, don't let the tabloid press grind you down!

    I worked at BBC full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Fascinating place to work. Never dull. So much to improve that the opportunities to get stuck in are endless.

    Cons

    The need for change is not shared by a large number of people who are satisfied with the status quo. Things get done for whoever shouts loudest or has the best connections to senior management.

    Advice to Management

    Make some decisions. Reduce headcount in non-core areas, including HR
