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)

    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.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (more than a year)

    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.
