    Pros

    Fox News dominates ratings among the rest of news cable channels. Their shows are of a great quality and production value. People who work there are very professional, dedicated and diligent.

    Cons

    Fox News management doesn't set a goal to inform people about current events that much, rather to use those events to convey certain opinions and influence public in a certain way.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find journalists/anchors who would be able to convey messages in a more sofiaticated and believable way.

    I worked at FOX News part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The production team I worked on was great. They loved their work and were very dedicated to the show.

    Cons

    The work was relatively mundane for a PA. Although the news is changing by the minute, the way we process the news does not change.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If there was a way that production assistants could have a bit more opportunity that would set them in the right course.

    Pros

    You'll learn a ton and supervisors aren't afraid to let you learn from your mistakes. People are also very friendly.

    Cons

    Absolutely no work life balance. Terrible schedules. Company is very cheap to employees and shows no appreciation. Also there's no room for growth. The hard working, younger employees hardly stay for more than 2 years. Measly salaries and raises.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show that you actually care about your employees and not just the ratings. Allow lower level employees access to their supervisors. Offer competitive salaries and raises.

    Pros

    Some people are nice. Cool location. Meet interesting people sometimes.

    Cons

    Negative energy all over the building and they pay less than nearby networks in midtown for every position except maybe on air air. They make bank. A little bit racist but not the worst company for that topic.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay people better. How is it MSNBC pays better when fox has better ratings???
