Does Sky offer stock options?

Pros

Great engineering teams with some very talented people. The offices are very modern and open. All permanent employees get a raft of perks, free TV, free Broadband, pensions, stock options etc. The pace of engineering can be fast that keeps the environment challenging. As a software engineer who wants to hone their skills in an embedded C/Linux domain this is an excellent place to start. The engineers deliver some phenomenal developments and there is a real can do attitude. A family atmosphere amongst the engineers and they all pull together to achieve the right results. The engineering has a real start-up feel, although since Comcast took control this is somewhat being diminished through layers of product management.

Cons

There is little opportunity to innovate as most of the engineering focuses on the integration of 3rd party driver and applications. If you spend more than 3 years here you will find your skills diminishing. The directorship/management predominately come from a project/hardware background and have very little software domain knowledge, this does lead to chaotic planning, poor budgeting decisions, and constant change, They are somewhat arrogant and protective and promote/employ from within their trusted circle. Constructive criticism although promoted through Sky's values is not appreciated and if voiced you will find yourself isolated quite quickly. I would recommend finding a position in the Osterley campus if you can.

Advice to Management

Take time to know your engineering staff and understand the challenges they are faced with everyday, promote the software engineering capability and their achievements.
