    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Sky full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Open office, friendly and welcoming staff, great bonus packages and support, flexible working. Some fantastic managers.

    Cons

    Poorly organised. Lack of direction. 90's Corporate nature means everything moves at a snails pace. Low pay. Toleration for toxic staff due to 'knowledge'. It's a great place to start out, and learn, but not progress.

    Advice to Management

    Don't sacrifice the entire team for one persons assumed knowledge. Morale is horrendous. Don't tell staff there is no money for promotions, then employ a new team member at 20k more PA than the other team members.
