    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Amazing Benefits (probably the best out there) Open modern trendy office (In Osterley) Waitrose within the office Dry cleaning & Car wash Flexible working (Depending on your role) On site Gym Subsidised Meals Great tech to work with

    Cons

    As you noticed all the pros are to do with the benefits of the office and working for sky. This review is only really relevant if you join the technology department as I can't account for how it is within other departments. There are way too many managers in sky.... so many managers that your real work does not get the full recognition. people who have been there 25 plus years who are really working towards... retirement so they can become very mundane and demoralising. people placed in roles not because they are fit for the job but based on the fact that they are mates with so and so unfortunately career progression is slim here, a lot of politics, false promises and deceit. on the outside it is painted as an amazing place to work but when you get to the nitty gritty finer details of how some managers work it is apparent how the company really is... (this is not an attack on managers either)

    Advice to Management

    look at restructuring the management system, there are far too many managers who just have the title and lack any management skill, too many managers who lack motivation therefore it shows within a team.
