      Very wasps. Full of stings

      Pros

      Some fun shows Some lovely people but often stressed or worried about their job. Culture of fear. All senior management white and not in touch ie last month one middle class blonde white person asked the only black staff member ‘what matters to black people, Black Lives Matter.’ It’s like they’ve come out of a coma and realised there’s black and indian people!

      Cons

      Long hours on low pay. Cliquey Not diverse. Race. Women Ignorant. If you’re white, pretty and blonde you’ll be fine. If you’re not you’ll never know as you won’t get a foot in the door. Worked in itv daytime for 30 years seen very little change in terms of diversity of race or women. Sadly the women are too worried and insecure about their own jobs to even think of lifting up another woman. My friends work on GMB, This Morning and Loose Women and they all ‘hate the toxic energy’ and bullying by the editors and presenters even the production coordinators think they’re important and are sometimes cruel and mean. Probably they know they’re glorified secretaries and not bright enough to be producers. It’s not right. Someone should say something but no one ever will. It’s sad.
