I have been working at News Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Major brands, leading position in Australia, some smart people. Some growth left in some of the digital businesses like Moshtix or The Australian.

Cons

Major budget cuts, revenue declines, plenty of fear in the organisation. News historically was in a position of strength and you could count on developing a solid career there. Now, many of the more interesting business are only loosely affiliated (Fox Sports, Foxtel) and the core newspaper business is in a state of managed decline.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The culture of honesty and communication under Harto seems to have disappeared. It may be too late to get that back, but it's worth trying.

    Pros

    Lot of interesting work done. A good learning experience. Not hierarchy driven. Very encouraging to new ideas. very friendly people

    Cons

    Not many cons to write about. Its a good place to work. The work hours are stressful. Due to the dynamic industry the timings can be steep

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is a need to breed in house talent to take up positions of responsibility. Developing cross functional capabilities is still nascent.

    Pros

    The opportunities for cross training and advancement are great especially because the company is so large. Recent reorganizations have improved the efficiencies within the organization.

    Cons

    The communication could be better and teams could take a less silo-ed approach to the business and customers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue investing in your people and streamlining processes where possible. Redundancies and poor communication not only slow progress but expose weakness to prospects and customers.
