  1.  

    Great place to work and plenty of scope for growth internally. Sometimes it can be easy to go unrecognised.

    I worked at News Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Large structured company.
    Plenty of room to move up the ladder if you have the commitment and time!
    They're always looking at the next big thing.
    As long as they keep up to date with growing technology they should continue to be impressive.

    Cons

    It can be a bit of a fight at times to be recognised but thats pretty much the same for all large companies.
    A little bit late adopting their magazines for digital.

    I worked at News Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    good team culture, location, office space, young sales team

    Cons

    management unsupportive of anything that will encourage growth as an employee, horrible commission structure, way too much turnover, unrealistic KPI's, incentives minimal, not enough digital training, a tendency to launch products before testing and have them fail in front of live customers, below average pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your staff, allow them to grow in areas they are passionate about, pay them what the rest of the industry think they are worth, be more flexible with KPI's - dont just think about being innovative, actually BE innovative

    Former Employee - Internal Communications Manager in New York, NY (US)

    I worked at News Corp full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Exceptionally smart leadership. Great location. Generally nice people. Great experience for professionals who seek to understand corporate America at its best, and for people to absorb deep knowledge of their field because News Corp has great SMEs.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training for "managers & below." Peers either keep to themselves or become clique-ish. The term "every man for him/herself" can be used well here because there isn't a great deal of teamwork taking place at News Corp.

    I found that no sense of achievement came from completing a project at News Corp. I didn't have a manager who patted me on the back when I did a great job, and that was fine for me. But if you're looking for that, News Corp is the wrong place for you. Similarly, if you're looking for a manager to tell you what you're doing wrong and who will help you get better, News Corp is also the wrong place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Plan and develop opportunities to train and develop your employees.

    I worked at News Corp as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely coordinated tax department, with very competend and friendly people. I had a great experience while I was working at News Corp.

    Cons

    Sometimes there would not be much work for me to do as an intern, but everyone was always very helpful and understanding when I got swamped with things to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would suggest that you keep your interns occupied and keep trying to teach them more. The internship program at News Corp is great, and I was completely happy with it.

    Former Employee - Manager

    I worked at News Corp full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    People were professional, fun, friendly, collaborative for the most part. Like any place, you're gonna have politics and a couple of bad apples. My job was to bridge IT and the businesses and that for the most part was working - people were responsive to the mission

    Cons

    Politics can get in the way of the actual job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turf wars impact morale and execution. What do you do to discourage or discipline such unproductive behaviors....
