    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Sky full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great campus with new buildings, gym, cinema and subsidised food. Good benefits, including 6 weeks paid paternity. Wide range of products and challenging software deliveries.

    Cons

    Based in Osterley with limited parking. Very political, but which large company isn't...

    Advice to Management

    Collaboration and doing the right thing hindered by funding model. Org structure too deep in places.

    No Opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Sky for more than a year

    Pros

    Spacious and modern offices, great location, great atmosphere, a real sense of community, everybody very level and approachable. Sky is a comparatively large company, but retains much of the nature of a start-up. Sometimes "Believe in better" rings a bit hollow, but "Made by us" is very true: Sky has never hesitated to break the mold, going so far as designing their own, branded 3-pin electric plugs. Why not? ... Sky has never been content with repackaging and rebranding off-the-shelf solutions, and enjoys being a bit different, being the one that makes others wonder "what will they do next?"

    Cons

    The flip side of the positive. One hand doesn't know what the other is doing. Projects spinning out of control, management not knowing what's going on, a sometimes lazy and careless attitude among some employees, groups and entities that are totally entrenched and impenetrable while showing no corporate spirit , engagement, or responsibility. Giant baby, a massively overgrown start-up, a lack of maturity and... structure. But Sky is what you make of it: be positive, and the negatives fade into insignificance.

    Advice to Management

    At all levels, get a grip. Pull in your direct reports and ask for a no-holds-barred brain dump. Do not merely grant "permission to speak freely", demand it.
