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

    Pros

    Most of the people are friendly and you get decent benefits if you work there for more than a year.

    Cons

    If you are in an entry-level position your hard work will often not get noticed and management will get all the credit. Once you've established yourself in a role at the company it can be difficult to move up and out of that role. You will work very hard and not feel valued.

    Advice to Management

    Don't wait so long to promote talented, hardworking employees. Reward the people who can actually make a difference and get rid of the people who just cause unnecessary arguments and issues because they don't understand or follow the workflow provided.
