    I worked at Sky full-time

    Pros

    - Fast moving and lots of different opportunities to get involved in - Clear company direction and striving for growth - Good attitude towards flexible working and managing work / life balance - Great employee benefits and strong network opportunities

    Cons

    - Can be a Sky type, so the company isn't right for everyone - No-one owns anything, you are part of the process and so breadth of experience can be limited

    I have been working at Sky full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great place to learn and work with different technologies. Management is good, remuneration package is fantastic

    Cons

    depends on the boss; if you get a boss who hasn't got experience in managing teams, it can be the worst place to work. There are a lot of middle managers who are managers because their were fantastic technical engineers but terrible managers.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Sky full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great offices, loads of development opportunities, ambitious and high performing workforce and great benefits packages. They really listen to employee feedback and empower their staff.

    Cons

    Directors can sometimes scramble around to please their leadership teams before understanding what the actual ask from them was in the first place. Can mean that entire teams cross functionally all begin their own version of what they think the task is, duplicating efforts massively to then be told its something completely different that they wanted and everyone then has to pivot and start again.
