    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sky full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Amazing facilities; good benefits overall; modern and innovative environment; great focus on diversity and big push for BAME and women in leadership.

    Cons

    Some senior leaders are too keen on change and want to move fast but cannot give the right direction and support to their direct reports. This could cause some frustration and lack of motivation hence negative attrition. Such a shame.

    Advice to Management

    Communication is key in any operation so please communicate better and more consistently to the middle management. Don't forget that it is your middle managers that have to embrace change first and do the dirty job most of the time.

    I have been working at Sky full-time

    Pros

    Sky invest in company culture, and office surroundings. Pay and benefits are fair/good but not as high as some other industries.

    Cons

    It's a big corporate, and can feel like you are sometimes treated as a cog in a big wheel. Lots of processes too.
