    I worked at Sky full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    free sky woopie doo!" other benefits only good if you get a decent salary, and werent lied to when you took the job!

    Cons

    the pay is too low to really benefit from the sky shares or the pension scheme, have found management rules with lies and intimidation, more lies and bullying. HR are pretty useless if you have a problem. In terms of looking after the staff and recognising hard work, forget it, do not apply for a job here. my husband has been out of work, but i actively discouraged him from applying for a job here, as I told him, you will lose your will to live.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    value staff who work hard, rather than the current status where, i kid you not, if you are young and pretty, you will be given special treatment, and get away with doing very little, and get great bonuses and payrises, only apply for a job here if you are hot, young, and dont depend on the pay to pay your mortgage and bills, ie live at home with mum ansd dad. dont look for a career here.

    I worked at Sky as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Lots of interesting work, listen to new ideas and give space to explore them

    Cons

    HR are very slow, and budget year end is a painful time

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Streamline the HR process so that it does not take forever to get new hires in, to renew contracts and to arrange interviews.
