Senior Manager in London

Don’t knock it, until you try it!
This is a good place to work. From the outside I thought the usual things about it being old, stuffy and bureaucratic. After joining I realised that it has a mostly positive culture and people are always eager to offer help and support. And, we make some great shows, too! This is a self-critical organisation that strives to get things right. But it is by no means perfect and there’s lots more to do. I’ve been here a long time and despite the ups and downs and changes; I’d recommend the BBC as a place to build your career.
