    I worked at News Corp full-time for more than 10 years

    Generally, great co-workers
    News business is fast-paced and ever changing, so life stays interesting
    Working in a global company provides wide ranging perspective

    Cons

    Significant changes in the corporate culture have made it a difficult workplace
    Now much more difficult to achieve work/family/life balance

    People, company, products, processes, professionalism, energy, positive attitude, managers, the team

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

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people who we're really talented and committed. I learned from my peers while I was there.

    Cons

    Projects went from super important and urgent to not as important as the next shiny thing.
    I didn't learn from senior management or get much support during the tough times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff to be their best.

    I have been working at News Corp full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Journos and media a fun culture. Loved my time there until the industry collapsed.

    Cons

    Lack of commercial nous. Journos still don't get digital.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire people that get digital. Still have old fogey stogy politics and people in place.

    Former Employee - Manager

    I worked at News Corp full-time for 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....
