    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great company, amazing benefits, Free Sky Q, good development programmes and an awesome head office. Supplemented meals, onsite gym, nail bar, hairdresser and little Waitrose. Amazing free summer events with live music and great food. Incredible restaurants and an amazing atmosphere.

    Cons

    There are not a lot of cons at sky. The current efficiency drive is challenging as it impacts our ability to function at times, but they remain people focussed and benefits haven't suffered.

    Advice to Management

    Great leaders are there to serve their people, not impress their bosses.
