    Former Employee - Operations in Sydney (Australia)

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

    Pros

    Always the people make the place worth while. They did have a flexible working model and were trying to improve the culture

    Cons

    Homophobic and misogynistic. At the time managers had a blind eye approach if they were not directly involved. There was a lot of upheaval with an organisation that was undergoing transformation. However their appeared to be a self serving approach from senior management at the time. Very little support for innovation or progressive business approaches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the path of transformation but exercise integrity with your words and actions. It will create a cohesive and productive working environment if you stop the sabotage to protect your possitions.

    I worked at News Corp as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace, led by good management. Very good and experienced editors. IT area just went through a major upgrade. Program was well run, delivered an ERP on-time and on-budget by CTO.

    Cons

    Old fashioned leadership. Need to upgrade their views especially when challenged by digital technologies. Although IT has been upgraded, old ways of doing things need to be abandoned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that digital technologies are here to stay and will expand into print.

    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.

    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
    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....
