    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.

      Sky as a company is good, just don't work in any of the Service departments

      Pros

      Great perks and staff benefits Amazing Osterley campus with great restaurants, food and gym On site cinema Always some event or activity happening on-site where you may get a chance to spot a celebrity or two (pre-Covid) Get to work with some amazing forward-thinking people but fully dependent on which department you work in Great graduate scheme

      Cons

      Extremely backwards and yes-man leadership if you work in Customer Service departments Work-life balance is non-existent; getting e-mails/calls late night or at a weekend is not something you look forward to but it's so common it's become the norm People of colour are very much overlooked and treated as an outcast regardless of what they achieve or deliver Very poor and toxic work environment (specially if you work in the customer service department) where loudest person in the room or call is recognised
