    I worked at Virgin Media

    Pros

    Really progressive company, a lot of time for people to learn new skills. Leading company in the Digital world, growing and growing

    Cons

    Management sometimes overlook some employees and there isnt much of a link between the different departments, very much a stick to your own department type place

    Advice to Management

    Maybe to integrate with other departments more, but other than that I thought management was very good in the company and always helped you develop

    Neutral Outlook
    No Opinion of CEO

    I worked at Virgin Media full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Large customer base means varied casework, active social club (Club Red) with good offerings such as cinema and go-karting.

    Cons

    Very 'numbers' oriented, analysts treated as a resource en-masse and not given the work/life balance opportunities afforded to lower/middle/upper management. Poor career guidance and progression, no bonuses and/or incentives for non-customer facing staff. Lack of flexibility to accommodate individual circumstances. Very 'silo'-based approach making co-operation and communication between different departments... difficult. Virgin Media Ireland is only a Virgin company in name and doesn't appear to live up to its ideals.

    Advice to Management

    Use the feedback sessions to really listen to the areas of dissatisfaction amongst your workforce and stop creating endless levels of management and chains of command.
