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)

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

    Pros

    Was a paid internship; they charged us with actual goals and tasks - and a paid internship!

    Cons

    Wasn't completely structured, would have some days where there wasn't too much to do

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Ask for more input from interns so that they can help productivity as much as possible

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Had fun working there. Director was good, direct reports were good, support was good.

    Cons

    It seems like every 3 years the fire senior management and most of the people in the org (clean house) ...and then just replace with another senior leader with that person's entourage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your people instead of poaching from the other studios

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Smart executives; solid management; professional. Believe it or not, Rupert's memos to the employees, which convey sincerity, pride, and esprit d'corps. Fair treatment and then some.

    Cons

    Can be huge and impersonal, but not for lack of trying to keep employees feeling emotionally invested. Inconvenient crowded parking. Mixed feelings working for a company with political beliefs that are often anathema to one's own, but not working for the network takes some of the edge off.

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox

    Pros

    not as political as other large corporations - although getting more so. smart go getters who bring team spirit to the job. Was given plenty of tools to succeed at selling.

    Cons

    the changing tv environment with less overall viewership on broadcast side is making things tense at all levels.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox

    Pros

    Great location and nice people to work with. The commissary was a great place to eat with many options and really fresh food. There are many places to sit and relax while on break as it seemed like a world all its own.

    Cons

    Parking and security to enter was tough. The parking garage attendants must be trained to be very strict with their security. You could work there for a month straight and go in with the same attendant but if your pass wasn't right, no way you were getting in.

    Room for growth and promotions all over. They pay for your food a lot of times.

    Cons

    Starting pay may not be too good, although this could totally depend on the job or show you're working on.
