    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    free TV, some staff are brilliant people

    Cons

    Where do I start!! This company is dangerous! The management openly take drugs at their desks - and DO NOT question them over anything or you will be bullied out.

    There are extra marital affairs going on everywhere, and god help you if you are a girl - Team leaders feel its totally acceptable to grope staff and talk about their bodies in a demeaning way. The quicker I am out of here the better!

    Advice to Management

    Take a long, hard look at your staff! you are well away of the affairs that are happening and the favouritism that is shown to the people sleeping with Team leaders - but ignore it. Also, the drug culture is beyond shocking! and this has been mentioned in several reviews here! I have personally been offered drugs by a Team leader and a Team manager like it was such a normal thing. Its getting to the stage that I feel it needs to be mentioned to the police!

    I worked at Sky full-time

    Pros

    Nice office space
    Great canteen, well priced
    Free TV/discounted Internet
    Do not have to take work home with you.

    Cons

    Not great pay.
    Good work life dependent on whether or not your team leader is competent.
    Pressure to close sales + incentive structures means dodgy sales. You are very unlikely to make good commission if you are above board.

    Advice to Management

    Reward staff with time off/cash prizes.
    Stop coming down on agents for not being compliant - it is most likely their Team Lead/Senior Managers putting the pressure on them to reach unrealistic targets.

    I worked at Sky full-time

    Pros

    I received 50 plus hours a week because of different available jobs that were opened for posotions.

    Cons

    You have to wait until everyone leaves before cleaning up at 11 to 12am and the kitchen closed at 9pm. I would be stuck doing only little work until bar closing.

    Advice to Management

    I LOVE working in the food industry. I Make people's day and enjoy working fast paced.

    Pros

    I was an American working in Osterley for Sky. Sky Movies was probably the most welcoming team of professionals I've ever worked with. They were incredibly accomodating, interesting, friendly, and compassionate. As an intern, they did not treat me like an intern. They were a hardworking group, and I can't think of a better place to work.

    Cons

    None. Best work experience I've ever had.

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

    Pros

    Great people - most are innovative, experienced and creative. Get to work at the forefront of a big entertainment, sport and technology company.

    Cons

    The department I was in had lots of employees that had quibbles about pay and promotion. Although not terrible, it was quite bad compensation for work load and responsibilities. Promotion opportunities were poorly communicated and it felt to me and others like management/HR avoid promotions and pay rises as much as possible. This led to discontentment and a disproportionate amount of resignations. Pay/promotion system also very reflective of how pro-active personal managers were; which mine wasn't.

    Advice to Management

    Review pay/promotion system
