Current Employee - UI/User Experience Designer

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

Pros

Worked as a designer on bbc goodfood, was one of the best working environments I’ve experienced. The team felt like a family, we were autonomous and got stuff done.

Sometimes the red tape got in the way. Things took much longer to do.
