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

    Current Employee - Reporter in New York, NY

    I have been working at News Corp

    Pros

    PRO
    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.

    Cons

    A 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 ManagementAdvice

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

    The starting pay / benefits is better than the industry average.

    Quality and creativity continue to be sacrificed to the automation gods with no consideration beyond cost-saving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    From top to bottom, your employees have made you successful. Automation/Outsourcing will never replace the experience and talent you're loosing.
