    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The whole company needs to be redone. You can't have every decision make by one person, and it happens to be the wrong guy. Then you have people underneath making ever little change, just because of one word.

    You lost almost ten people for the past 6 months. Stop putting people in positions and power that doesn't really have the background and skills. Development and Ops team are down to a few good talents, and you have nobody else to execute. Strategy and Project Management are both in complete chaos. Making poor decisions over and over again.

    Start hiring professionals and believe in them, not college kids that knows nothing. You need to stop micro-managing and think forward. Treat your employees with respect, but not robots.

    I worked at FOX News part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Very active, lot's happening. A good learning center. The tools are there to do a good job and one just has to be aware of what's happening to succeed.

    Cons

    Like any large organization, it's what you make of it. Stay focused, arrive to work on time, work hard and you'll be OK. The work can be frustrating at times, and it is NOT an environment to experiment with procedure. They have it down well and it's a matter of executing what they want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize all in the team. They all contribute.
