    Avantages

    Red Bee is an exciting business full of wonderfully talented people in offices all over the world. You get to work on major TV channels and with some cutting edge technologies.

    Inconvénients

    Red Bee operates as a rag-tag bunch of former acquisitions and business units that have little in common, other than being related to TV. There's no coherent strategy or culture about the place as a whole because many of the different departments operate with different priorities and budgets. The centralised technology function is as a result - through no fault of the people that try to deliver it - starved of funds and resources, but yet is required to be at the centre of everything. So everyone else has to spend hours, days and weeks waiting for them to do something, making every project run late and every other department frustrated.

    The user IT function is atrocious - like, shockingly bad - with about 2 people available to support a staff of a thousand, a different password for every system that came from a different acquisition or historical phase, and prehistoric PCs on every desk.

    Conseils à la direction

    - Get on top of the basic IT provision - it's in an absolutely shocking state, and it causes staff misery and poor productivity every day.
    - Decide why the different business units are supposed to be one organisation. Is there any real benefit to that? Do some of them simply need to be spun off or sold?
    - Embrace the cloud. Properly. Why are woefully under-resourced teams spending time and money doing things that could easily be done in AWS or Azure?
    - Embrace DevOps and form teams who can do it - the business and the customer should be the driving force and a team should be empowered to deliver an end-to-end technical solution without the need to rely on under-resourced skills-based teams with conflicting priorities.
    - If you're sticking with keeping one organisation, consolidate some of the office sites. Having multiple locations in each city from different acquisitions is contributing to the fractious nature of the organisation.

    Entretien de Broadcast Engineer

    Candidat à l'entretien anonyme - Salford, North West England, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)
    Aucune offre d'embauche
    Expérience négative
    Entretien dificile

    Candidature

    J'ai postulé en personne. Le processus a pris +4 mois. J'ai passé un entretien à Red Bee Media (Salford, North West England, Angleterre (Royaume-Uni)) en septembre 2019.

    Entretien

    I was entially contacted on the 23rd of June regarding coming in for an interview but didnt recieve a confirmed interview date until the 5th of September for the following week. I travelled over from northern Ireland for the interview on the day which started about 15 minutes late. I was roughly in the interview for two and a half hours it was a three man panel and they were all very nice the interview lasted roughly an hour and a half then there was a paper quiz and I got a tour of the building after that.

    My big issue with Red Bee Media is that I had no feedback about the result of the interview for two weeks and then I had to phone the recruiter myself to be told it's a no and he didnt have any feedback for me. Obviously it's a disappointment when ever you dont get a posistion but having spent just under £200 to attend that interview and taking a day off work it would of been nice to get some constructive feedback about how I could improve.

    Questions d'entretien d'embauche

    • A lot of compentacy based questions, most of them were very similar to one another which made it hard to answer the third or fourth one with out repeating yourself. For example

      What do you know about red bee media?
      What attracted you to apply?
      What services that we offer interest you the most?

      The paper test was fairly outdated had a few questions about half duplex ethernet so its obviously been knocking around for a while.   Répondre à cette question
