I worked at BBC full-time

Pros

it's the best broadcaster in the world! incredible talent, people will pick up the phone if you call, reasonable job security and benefits, good opportunities for progression.

Cons

takes forever to do anything. there is a culture of ass covering, promotion of risk taking culture, but not followed by those in the know. way too many people promoted beyond their level of competence

Advice to Management

live TV, radio and events know how to aggressively ship product on a daily basis, take a leaf from their book in technology endeavors

    I have been working at BBC as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is a great experience overall. I come in and start learning right away, it also helps that the people here really want to see you succeed with the company and do well in it.

    Cons

    The only cons are the long hours, but that comes with the type of job that you do. It really just depends where you are stationed at.


  2. "It is a good company."

    Pros

    THis is a great company it has many great opportunities. I feel that you should apply here. That is my thought.

    Cons

    It has long hours. You have to do a lot of the work independently. Also you have to work a lot given the pay. Another downside is that the commute was long.

    Advice to Management

    You are a great company. Keep up the good work. I would get a better HR department though because it is very annoying.
