    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.

    Cons

    Advice to Management

    Look after all staff not just the stars

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

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

    Pros

    - ITV is a great brand on the CV. You feel proud to work there.
    - Solid exposure to advertising sales - top ITV ad-space is still very sought after so you work with huge campaigns from day one, and it's great exposure to the media agency scene.
    - Work/Life balance - office is a ghost town come 17.50!
    - Social, both employee lead and company events, is good
    - Bosses are generally personable and approachable- culture where no one takes themselves too seriously
    - Decent bonus, but..

    Cons

    - poor basic renumeration. People slave away for years to reach salaries most companies would pay entry level grads.
    - Archaic promotion process, largely unmeritocratic
    - limited opportunity to develop autonomy over your work or portfolio. A lot of the work is menial and repetitive.
    - behind on digital - does not develop a futureproof workforce, despite the clear demands of the industry
    - As a result of all the above the workforce in general is pretty unmotivated

    Advice to Management

    Pay better, and promote on merit, or people will continue to leave.

    Better digital learning and development.

    Better inter-departmental collaboration- sales floor feels too independent from the wider business at times.

    Management don't have a clue and are insular.
    There is no career progression.

    Claim that their people are their greatest assets.. use them, abuse them and then throw them away when not useful any more

    Advice to Management

    Staff love the brand but management needs to appreciate them. Should look at a complete review of all managers and ditch the rubbish
