“Average place to work from a software engineer perspective”

Such a huge global company is good for your resume, especially in the UK. You don't have to have huge amounts of skill or talent to progress. Perks include free Sky, discounts in certain retailers and healthcare.

They do not source the best talent and consequently you may not be working on the most exciting or challenging projects. The environment itself is substandard, no kitchen facilities or even vending machines. Even the offices are sometimes short on desk space. Software architecture is outsourced to third party companies, so there is no opportunity to progress into this area. I.T. facilities in general could be improved, laptops provided to employees are outdated.

Not enough parking spaces, if you can't find a park you will have to pay for a private park elsewhere which is costly. In general, an average developer could do well here, if you believe you are more skilled than that, best to look elsewhere.

“Expanding company, great opportunities, got to put up with Company not always being flavour of the month”

The company is on the up and expanding and it's an exciting time. Lots of energy and vigour in the staff and there is lots going on and constant new developments and departments opening up in the business, particularly in the fast-moving technology and programming areas. Lots of opportunities for those in the right place at the right time.

Sky not always seen positively in the press and on the street which is a bit of a downer at times. The corporate feel, all the red tape and the political infighting is a bit of a drag and sometimes really can get to you. Staff are not asked often enough for their input and ideas.

It would be very unusual to see a staff member's new idea actually being followed through and implemented!

“Nice perks”

Free sky tv full package.free healthcare ,pension.gym and pool and good colleagues.

Being under the "leadership " of people not as bright as yourself.136 characters

Getting paid double time on Sundays to watch football and racing!! And getting good tips for betting and then hating Grand National day.Job Location for this company

“Great perks but rubbish pay as pay capped not good enough reason”

Excellent perks and very flexible

Pay is capped in sales

Very flexible however their new Mytime is rubbish as cant book or cancel leave etc on short notice

“Don't get a job in retentions”

It pays the bills.

Managers break data protection by having phones out, sitting on facebook, snapchat and texting. They lie about progression in the company its all about who you know not what you know evident by who gets promoted. Very strict on sickness no matter what reason, and will take the free sky off you for half a year. Don't care when some people go against sky behaviours but will punish others. The bonus structure is a joke. stressful job where you deal with assholes all day on the phone that mainly call up to abuse you, be rude, shout, swear and make you feel like a piece of shit and then you have your manager complaining at you about stats beca ...

It's a big company but completely corrupt.

“Steady and secure as a job can be these days. Good package including free sky, private family health care, pension with wage protection insurance etc.”

Security and package

Upper management not policed by their managers, resulting in the lower tier working within sky values but upper management not, this causes conflict and favourites as seen in promotions. How good you are is not taken into account as it is who you know.

How wide spread the operation is, making it hard to pin down what department dose what, even HR is fragmented.

“Dont leave sky”

It was the best job I ever had and I gave it up mind you I was the fool I had paid into private medical and was off sick for 3 months after mother in law died in my arms felt bad as was so low and bad back pains so decided to not mess sky about and left ,I then found out I had cancer of the kidney.

we were working until midnight in those days but I still loved it .

I knew once I had left I had done the wrong thing but needed to sort out my cancer ,which I did now what really hacks me off I was good at my job executive escalations ,and do you know when ever I apply for a post they NEVER phone back once I tell them I previously worked for them until this part I had the job .So you see guys and girls sky like you when your there but don't get cancer they will never take you back I have now been waiting over 2 months for an email to explain why I cant go back to work for them actualy I feel a slight touch of predudism against cancer patients coming what else can it be .......
