    I have been working at Sky full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Fast moving, well funded tech dept. Always challenging, always opportunities for developing skills and career. Amazing new campus in Osterley. Excellent benefits including free sky, awesome gym, subsidised restaurants, flexible working and more.

    Cons

    The usual office politics! The location (Brentford!) Tech bonus is rubbish!

    Advice to Management

    Tech bonus is poor, also, make it more about how well your department performs, encouraging a strong team mentality. This might make a difference when recruiting against the tech giants and encourage people to come to Brentford!!!
