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

    Account Manager (Former Employee) London, England

    ProsLarge 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.

    ConsIt 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Great Staff

    Tax Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

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

    ConsSometimes 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 Senior ManagementI 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.

    A good place

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople 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

    ConsPolitics can get in the way of the actual job.

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

    News Corp Review

    as an independent contractor with a lot of experience I was given a chance to shine and meet my potential

    Reporter (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsPRO
    High per diem rate for independent contracting, good personal support from staff, but that may have to do with a high comfort level with reporting from outside the central office and rarely being embroiled in internal office politics. Turnover gives one a chance to move up. Young, friendly staff.
    Billing issues resolved in a good manner that is as efficient as they can be, given that the office I work with has to deal with a central bureaucracy. They want to keep their stringers happy.

    ConsA sclerotic view of institutional change, e.g. expansion, has made it difficult to understand why a 6 billion dollar publicly traded company can't commit to a new news bureau. Artistically, limited change in form of news story. Creative potential not 100% realized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGo to bat more to make the news programming more of what you believe in your heart it should be.
