    I have been working at SBS full-time

    Pros

    You won't find an organisation you'll be more proud to work for. Plenty of people at SBS are there for the same reasons. People smile at you when you tell them where you work.

    Cons

    Poor resourcing, poor facilities, equipment etc. Extremely restrictive budget environment, resourcing etc. Digital teams struggle and are under-resourced. Many people are there because they can enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle and worklife balance. This is great for a while, until you actually want to get something done. Almost ZERO career opportunity or advancement - terrible HR department.
