Content Producer (Former Employee) – Cardiff – 6 March 2018
During the years I was at the BBC I learned a huge amount - from writing to filming and directing and running 360 campaigns across a variety of platforms. I was lucky enough to have worked across a wide range of genres in the time I was there. Like many companies there are too many managers and not enough creative/ content types who are now leaving to work in the freelance industry that awaits. Cuts and a lack of vision centrally are leading to the corporation's demise.
Amazing people, exciting projects, great place to work
No job security, difficult to progress, low salaries

In the nature of my role at the company, participating as a supporting role could be considered tedious, however the management were excellent at making sure my co workers and I felt that our roles meant something.
TV Floor Manager (Former Employee) – Cardiff, WLS – 3 October 2015
Time moves on and colleagues have either retired or died, and a new generation of "bright young things" have replaced the "old hands"! Thirty eight years is a long time! I have not been on the staff for four to five years, so I cannot comment on staff morale at this time
Multi-Media Promotions Director (Current Employee) – Cardiff, WLS – 21 July 2015
I'm really proud to work for the BBC.
My day-to-day job's very varied - there isn't a 'typical day'! Depending on the campaigns I'm working on, I could be scripting a news promo, editing a drama promo and brainstorming a sports promo in the space of a few hours.
There's a good sense of teamwork in my department. Everyone's happy to help each other.
In the current climate, it's just tricky to know where you stand in terms of job security.
Raising cheques, payment of invoices, working well within the team and on my own initiative, Also assisting in the Cash Office which involved dealing with staff and outside people. The hardest part was to balance the ledgers each night. I enjoyed all of my role I left to have my son
