    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.

    Former Employee - Production Assistant in New York, NY

    I worked at FOX News part-time (less than a 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.
