  1.  

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

    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

    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.

    I worked at News Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    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

    I worked at News Corp as an intern for 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.
