  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.

    Pros

    Great money, young people, good opportunity to learn to multi-task while under pressure.

    Cons

    Team leaders don't understand the systems and crm tools enough to problem solve when a DSP has a serious issue that could prevent an advertising campaign being booked.

    High school environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the team leaders in the contact center to use all of the booking systems so that a DSP has a reliable helper available rather than someone just monitoring call KPIs

    Pros

    Some people, mainly on the digital floor are nice work with.

    Cons

    Antiquated view of digital publishing. By the time editors understand the benefits of a digital product we may in the next millennium. Self serving environment which only protects those in power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your team, their are actually people who know a little about digital.

    Pros

    Global company with lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    If you get an obnoxious stuck up management, which a lot of them are, your hard working days are taken for granted, you are just another number in that case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need management change heads of upwards. People under are not valued. Culture is really demoralizing.

    Pros

    Great for your resume - the Fox name is impressive
    Opportunity to learn a lot

    Cons

    Pay is low if you were hired after the recession, with 2% annual raises (can't speak for the union)
    Understaffed - expect to do multiple jobs
    Budgets are tight - seems like other station groups outspend us in every market
    Internal departments as well as sister companies (like Fox Broadcasting) poorly communicate with each other
    Depending on your title, expect to spend a quarter of your time on conference calls

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Step away from the bottom line and invest in the happiness of your employees
