    Great Staff

    Tax Intern (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsExtremely coordinated tax department, with very competend and friendly people. I had a great experience while I was working at News Corp.

    ConsSometimes there would not be much work for me to do as an intern, but everyone was always very helpful and understanding when I got swamped with things to do

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would suggest that you keep your interns occupied and keep trying to teach them more. The internship program at News Corp is great, and I was completely happy with it.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Dow Jones is a company undergoing some needed transition, but it is no longer a good employer,

    Senior Product Executive (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsGenerally, great co-workers
    News business is fast-paced and ever changing, so life stays interesting
    Working in a global company provides wide ranging perspective

    ConsSignificant changes in the corporate culture have made it a difficult workplace
    Now much more difficult to achieve work/family/life balance
    No clear strategic direction; difficult to determine rationale behind many decisions

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    A good place

    Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsPeople were professional, fun, friendly, collaborative for the most part. Like any place, you're gonna have politics and a couple of bad apples. My job was to bridge IT and the businesses and that for the most part was working - people were responsive to the mission

    ConsPolitics can get in the way of the actual job.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTurf wars impact morale and execution. What do you do to discourage or discipline such unproductive behaviors....

    Don't Work For This Company Unless You WaNT fAILURE...

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Boise, ID

    ProsFew to none.... tHIS COMPANY WITH dIRECtv IS NOT A GOOD eXPERIENCE....

    ConsAs reference to their DirecTV account, the initial training is adequate. But then they dump immediately into what they call "nesting", which is live calls with what is very minimal, and inadequate support. If you fail to meet their AHT (Average Handle Times). you are let go. I do not recommend this company under any circumstances...

    Advice to Senior ManagementRemove your "nesting", and build a side-by_side program with an experienced agent. This will increase your new agent retention by an amazing amount...

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
