    I have been working at Sky full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very relaxed, and comfortable place to work. You can be yourself and no need to put on a facede. Depending on the department you work in, it's generally not much formal. The Osterley site is a bit more relaxed than the Victoria site. Nevertheless, it's a great place to work.
    The team is great, since you would normally see them everyday, you really do bond and become a family. Besides it's Mon to Fri (9-5) so great hours.

    Cons

    Travelling can be a bit tedious, especially for the Osterley site. If you don't live closely.

    I have been working at Sky full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I've worked for corporates for most of my career and the Osterley campus is how it should be done. People are welcoming helpful and professional.

    Cons

    Can't think of any but I've only been there 2 weeks!

    Advice to Management

    Again, I'm very new but my advice thus far is to keep doing what you're doing.

    I worked at Sky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I loved working at Sky, the culture was amazing as well as the work-life balance. Not only that but the product was pretty special with a massive reach and amazing brand such as Sky Q, Now TV and On demand

    Cons

    Location was a bit difficult to get to but the Sky Campus is pretty special

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what your doing

    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good such as free Sky Q, full TV package and good deals on Mobile and Broadband. It's a big company and there are lots of internal job opportunities if you want them.

    Cons

    It's a big company, how you view it may depend on the team you go into/the manager you have. I've had both good and bad managers that swayed how I felt about the company at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Being efficient with people is not efficient. Make the pension scheme better.
