    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.
