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

    Pros

    Location - Zelenograd department (I'm from it)
    Great technical people. You can learn from them a lot or promote your ideas and share.

    Cons

    My cons (and the purpose of leaving) were management, exactly - head of the company, well educated but very hot. At that moment there were a tough times in selling and they cut the costs, people and start coding themselves (they were developers some times)

    Advice to Management

    Please, try not to code when you are managing or if you do it - do it as other - with code review, code style if not - you demotivate your workers very much

    I have been working at ITV full-time

    Pros

    It's a very friendly place to work, and has flexible working which is great if you have a family. Lots of skilled and dedicated people too.

    Cons

    The lifts are slow. Management go out of their way to give people recognition, but it's not always the right people or they miss people.

    Advice to Management

    Get better offices, which they are already doing, but don't pack people in so close together which I've seen in some areas.

    Pros

    Great people, great technology, great work-life balance, good remuneration.

    Corporate approach to management sometimes, favouritism

    Advice to Management

    Spend the time to review how your employees do instead of relying on global practices that hide away the personal touch.
