Nice lifestyle, limited opportunities, lots of politics
Marketing Manager (Former Employee) – London, Greater London – 21 October 2018
Nice culture, and lots of smart people who are all trying to do the right thing. At times projects get bogged down in politics, with some senior managers more concerned with protecting their licence-fee funded salaries.
Intelligent people, it's the BBC, good work-life balance
Human Resources Advisor (Former Employee) – white city – 28 March 2018

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

Production Coordinator (Current Employee) – Scotland – 19 February 2018
The team that I have been working with in Glasgow are incredible. Hard working, helpful, friendly and extremely good at their jobs. I have learnt loads from them whilst I have been working on a fixed term contract. Even for freelancers, the opportunity to attend training courses that the BBC run I felt was brilliant, and shows that they are interesting in developing people further in their careers, supporting them every step of the way. The relaxed office environment assists with productivity amongst the team, and the work/life balance has been addressed successfully. My Line Manager is very thorough and supportive through all stages of production and I really enjoy working with her.
Opportunity to attend a variety of training courses

Chaperone (Former Employee) – Manchester, Greater Manchester – 18 January 2018
The job did require long working hours, and depending on which production I worked on, I met a variety of people and travelled to a Iot of places I perhaps wouldn't have without the opportunities within the job. Most of my time within the job I was working with my son, who is a child actor, so it was good to share the experience with him. It is a job where you work as a team but due to usually long production processes, the team become more like family.
