Review Highlights

Pros
  • Work-life balance is heavily sided toward work (not just at Fox, but in all arenas of its industry) (in 9 reviews)

  • Free movie screenings and blu-rays, but the movies aren't that great (in 7 reviews)


Cons
  • Room for growth is practically non existent unless you are a brown noser (in 6 reviews)

  • Employees were constantly squeezed for more work so there is a poor work-life balance (I'm pretty sure they've never heard the term before) (in 3 reviews)

    Pros

    Great campus in Culver City, with employee access to the FOX lot. Fairly easy to balance work and family life with above average time-off policies.

    Cons

    Cost of living and lack of convenience at the FOX lot. Limited or no company parking means employees may pay to park at work. Promotions and advancement are extremely hard to come by. Salary offers for incoming employees are negotiable, so push for what you can up front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider internal candidates for advancement.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    If you work on or near the lot, you can take advantage of the free movie screenings and get the chance to see the occasional celebrity. I was able to go on a couple set tours while I was there as well. Their benefits are really good and there's a lot of extra perks as well (I regularly received free blu rays, attended Christmas parties, etc.) The department I worked didn't micro-manage and expected people to work independently (which I consider a plus). There's a big Summer barbecue every year with a screening of the big summer movie along with lots of free food.

    There were lots of opportunities for professional development, including free classes on everything from Excel to learning about economics of the film industry. They also offered tuition reimbursement for qualifying classes. I attended department-wide meetings where we had guest speakers like James Cameron and Danny Devito. How cool is that?

    Fox is one of the best companies I've worked for.

    Cons

    Fox runs lean, which could mean extra work depending on where you work, but it also means they didn't lay off very often unlike some other studios. They didn't offer paternity leave when I had my youngest son. I often found that their HR/benefits department was hard to deal with when you had questions about your benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer paternity leave to fathers and advise the HR/benefits group to be more responsive with employees questions and needs.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Being able to experience and work on the Fox Lot. Free movie premieres almost every Saturday. Coworkers were reserved but overall very friendly.

    Cons

    Work environment is relatively dry. At times there was no work to do (as an intern) and I wondered if they even needed an intern program in the department I was in. Wasn't during a busy season though so it's understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Good job overall!

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    I had a great experience working at Twentieth Century Fox. Do your job, keep your job. Very supportive team atmosphere in the executive building, TV shows and films. I worked in the executive building and several TV shows in development and active production. All great experiences and I wish more companies would have full support of their employees. It's also a terrific environment to learn everything about production.

    Cons

    I saw people who were promoted, trained and immersed in respectful company values. I have no complaints and it was a great experience.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work!

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    I was given real tasks and projects with effects that I can see. My team was awesome and taught me so much from technical skills to creative strategies.

    Cons

    Sometimes slow paced. Other fellow interns didn't have the same experience as I did. Not a lot of training.
