    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.

    Upgrade Systems, and bring in qualified help.

    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....

    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
    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.
