    Pros

    They just get it - from strategy to culture. Of course there are variations from division to division, but in general, I've never seen people who weren't doing a good job advance -- not for long, at least.

    Cons

    As all companies as they grow, it's getting more political with time.

    Advice to Management

    Stop buying newspapers. Fix Star TV.

  6. Great people to work with. Upper management lacks direction.

    Pros

    Good pay
    Friendly and inclusive culture
    Accessible leadership

    Cons

    Upper management seems to have no direction. Just trying to follow trends after they've already left.
    I saw a million dollar project scrapped on the same day that it launched.

    Advice to Management

    Stand by what you've already built. Don't flop around trying to chase trends.

    Pros

    good team culture, location, office space, young sales team

    Cons

    management unsupportive of anything that will encourage growth as an employee, horrible commission structure, way too much turnover, unrealistic KPI's, incentives minimal, not enough digital training, a tendency to launch products before testing and have them fail in front of live customers, below average pay

    Advice to Management

    invest in your staff, allow them to grow in areas they are passionate about, pay them what the rest of the industry think they are worth, be more flexible with KPI's - dont just think about being innovative, actually BE innovative

    Pros

    Exceptionally smart leadership. Great location. Generally nice people. Great experience for professionals who seek to understand corporate America at its best, and for people to absorb deep knowledge of their field because News Corp has great SMEs.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training for "managers & below." Peers either keep to themselves or become clique-ish. The term "every man for him/herself" can be used well here because there isn't a great deal of teamwork taking place at News Corp.

    I found that no sense of achievement came from completing a project at News Corp. I didn't have a manager who patted me on the back when I did a great job, and that was fine for me. But if you're looking for that, News Corp is the wrong place for you. Similarly, if you're looking for a manager to tell you what you're doing wrong and who will help you get better, News Corp is also the wrong place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Plan and develop opportunities to train and develop your employees.
