    Pros

    It's a great place to work. On the West side, creative environment, lots of opportunity with not too much bueracracy for a big company.

    Cons

    People can get a little lost if they don't act a little like an entrepreneur as there is not a structured way for people to advance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of people who have been there a long time and are very stuck in their ways.

    Great Internship Experience

    Former Employee - Internship in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Internship in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at FOX Broadcasting as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Working in the broadcasting field can be very exciting. This opportunity provided a great view behind the scenes of television and movies. The internship experiences varied, depending on the department, but most of the programs were invaluable and worked towards building up the interns.

    Cons

    Some of the bureaucracy was challenging. The relationship between the very high up management and the direct management was chaotic at times and I found that the firm decisions being passed down from very high up were sometimes out of focus with the scope of the problems being faced at the lowest levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The directors and VPs seemed to have a good grasp on things and seemed to be really invested in making great choices and plans. My advice to the upper management is to be more receptive to the information coming from the average workers.

    Bad management + Mediocre Salaries = Exodus of Good Employees

    Former Employee - Director in Los Angeles, CA
    Former Employee - Director in Los Angeles, CA

    I worked at FOX Broadcasting full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    This is for Fox overall, not just broadcasting. There are several options for food right on the Lot and other things like dry cleaners, car wash, flu shots and summer BBQs . If you're a celebrity/sports fan, you will see people you recognize. Other perqs vary greatly depending on which Fox company you work for.

    Cons

    The company has gone from one extreme to the other, with a lot of changes that aren't always good for employees unless you're management. Salaries and bonuses are low for the industry and low to middle range for the overall LA job market for everyone except executives. HR is worthless unless you are management or have a friend who can get you favors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask good people why they are leaving and really listen to them. Then do something about what they tell you.

    Pros

    Nice campus, good benefits, non-management employees are great to work with

    Cons

    Most of the execs are clueless as to what their departments actually do, they seems to forget that this is an entertainment company not a finance company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find execs who are enthusiastic about their jobs as opposed to the current ones who are just occupying space.
