    I have been working at Sky part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free Sky Q, Broadband and subsidised half price Sky Mobile. ChooseTech and other salary sacrifice schemes. Great environment with uncapped commission and generous bonuses that is guaranteed. Fair and achievable statistics. Benefits portal that is accessible from home and can book overtime remotely. Plenty of off the phone development time.

    Cons

    Biggest cons are sometimes outdated systems or issues with accounts that prevent certain actions from being carried out including sales, but this is being addressed. Not that many other cons.
