    I worked at Sky full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great benefits, above and beyond the standard in the industry. The Isleworth location is a great location to work in, with up to date facilities.

    Cons

    Highly stressful environment. Leadership decisions often made without consideration of the impact on staff. Staff typically overwork and not very support.

    Advice to Management

    There is more to a company than the benefits. Employees need to feel valued and reward for their efforts.

    Cons

    - Out of way location makes it difficult to build relationships with co-workers as the culture at work is very much get in, do the job, go home. Great for family workers, bad for young solo Londoners wanting to meet new people. - Relatively lower salaries for London due to subsidised onsite food. - Dependent on the size of your department it can be difficult to progress. - Very slow corporate culture, takes a long time to action anything as there is a heavy amount of procedure involved.
