    Pros

    Speed of change leads to lots of new opportunities if you work hard. Long hours sometimes expected but attempts to change that. Good perks and lots of attempts to encourage engagement.

    Cons

    Lack of movement at higher levels stifling those below. Systems not really invested in.

    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free Sky Q, great bonuses, amazing development opportunities and a fantastic environment which makes me want to come to work. I have completely changed my outlook on life in general while working here. I have the support and tools necessary to create many opportunities for myself which has led me to find my career goal.

    Cons

    The only con I have is that it's such a high pressured environment that it can be difficult to balance your stress tolerance with workload. In saying that, Sky do run some fantastic courses on how to reduce stress levels while at work - maybe I should read more of those!

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. If you continue to encourage and support your people, you will continue to be awesome!

    I have been working at Sky full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    If you work hard and don't get involved in politics and childish behaviours there is a potential to make money compared to other similar industry jobs. The perks are good, free healthcare, free sky, invest in stocks, pension plans, competitions And Yearly Review With Pay Increases (Not That big but nice to have).

    Cons

    It is a contact centre with young, childish behaviours shown from the agent level to management. You might be promoted to the very few positions above you available if you suck up instead of having the skills necessry. Everyone works for themselves instead of as a unit to bring success, you will get stabbed in the back. Very stressful with targets and the only way agents can acheive these targets is if they cut corners with the managers turning a blind eye to it. Woman to male ratio is about 1 female to 10 men so it is a large cesspool of men ogling women, a real lads club which does nothing for women in the workforce attempting to be successful .

    Advice to Management

    You all know what is happening and are too lazy to change it. I've no advice for you other than what you've already received in the past in which made no difference.
