      Big company politics often prevents change The "new" hybrid working pattern is just what it was before covid only rebranded as something new. I think they will regret this

      In an alternate universe, we’d all be at the airport lounge drinking our weekly stress away while eagerly waiting to go home. Life is good. Unless you’re flying United - you’re minutes away from being told your flight is delayed because there is one cloud in the sky.

      One of the best companies I worked for

      Pros

      - Great work/life balance; - They are not cheap. Sky can provide equipment on demand; - Great people; - Restaurants on campus (they are cheap and the food is great! Think 9'' pizza for £2!); - Cinema on campus; - Gym on site (no, it's not free); - Good pension scheme of up to 6% of salary paid by the company! - Great share saving scheme: you can buy options on Comcast at discounted price for 3 or 5 years, at the end of which you can sell your shares. Money can be recovered at any time without discounts. - Possibility of secondments. They encourage any efforts to change roles if you wish; - Relaxed environment; - Free flu jabs every year; - WFH and hybrid system is a huge success; - Free Sky products; - Good salary; - Good career development; - Discounts for other businesses and other perks; - Much more!

      Cons

      Sky seems to have some sort of politically-aligned motivator for hiring minorities. While this is not a problem on itself, the way this is implemented means some people get to be hired solely because of their ethnicity, regardless of their skills, leaving meritocracy on a limbo. This makes it harder, in some departments, to get promoted, for example, or to get a raise, because instead of rewarding people's efforts, they prefer to hire someone with ethnical background to make their graphs look good, which is unfair in the end of the day. It might seem I'm contradicting myself as I put as a "pro" point the ability of being promoted. That varies with the department. Other than that, I have no complaints. Seriously, this is a great company. If you have problems working on whatever part of Sky you end up, just change teams or change departments. It's a big company with many opportunities.
