    I worked at Sky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good benefits.
    Free Sky.
    Good bonus however constantly getting reviewed and slashed.

    Cons

    Tough job as you are trying to sell to customers who are looking to cancel. Customers often upset or angry.
    This can be mentally draining and I would not recommend long term.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the difficulty in the role and the dangers this can have on people mentally and physically.
