    Pros

    They paid the going rate—which was very fair and were quick to respond to problems as they arose. The work environment was generally friendly and casual.

    Cons

    The office space left something to be desired–air conditioning was erratic…icy cold in some places and stifling in others

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to have an amazing boss so my work life balance was amazing. half days before holidays, ability to work from home if needed. The amount of workload you get is great for your resume and Fox itself has a great reputation

    Cons

    No internal promotions. I was hired to join a team only to find out that I was the team. I did the work of 4 people and although stressful I was able to accomplish everything. When it came time for a management position that opened, I was over looked and had to train the person that was hired from the outside. Also Pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a go-to person...promote, you will get loyalty

    Working experience is highly dependent on individual department and the person to whom you report.

    Pros

    An excellent work environment, fun parties, and free movies screenings, to name a few. Working as a temporary floating Legal Assistant gave me the opportunity to work in various aspects of film and television until I became a permanent employee.

    Cons

    It is an extremely fast paced work environment and can get very hectic when projects are greenlighted. There are constant changes during the contract negotiation period and you are expected to keep up with the pace. Some attorneys can be difficult to work with, however, the majority of them are good to work with.

    Advice to Management

    Be more willing to give endorsements to former excellent employees on LinkedIn.

    Pros

    can stay with the company for a while

    Cons

    no overtime like twentieth. cheap rates to begin with. longest hours ever. short tape schedule turn around. the employees are burnt out in the daytime talkshow world. works through lunch many times. not right.

    Advice to Management

    lengthen the tape schedules so employees can rest, recharge and have a life. happy employees will produce better tv and have better ideas for shows because they are able to experience the world and see exactly what is happening in the world therefore put it on tv and have more watchers. simple. pay the employees what they deserve. allow real lunch breaks. don't change things at the last minute so much. listen to the younger generations ideas. the old ideas have been there done that. change it up. give benefits on startups. we don't have benefits, but they work us to the bone, then we get sick, but we don't have insurance to go to the doctor. it gets passed around the office. everyone is now sick. the cycle has to stop

    Pros

    Everyone worked together to accomplish goals. Management was directly involved with aiding Account Executives meet budget goals. I would work for them again.

    Cons

    There were many hiring freezes and was just tough to punch through to reach the higher paying jobs. I really wanted to continue with the company but a position just did not open up for me.


  10. Unstable and too much turnover

    Pros

    Core of competent professionals who know Chicago in the lower ranks. Pay is decent and competitive for similar jobs in town.

    Cons

    Management revolving door. New team comes in swaps out everything. Very hard on the staff. No end in sight. Station is last in market and has been for several years. Lots of second-guessing and layoffs, in response to economic pressures in industry.

    Advice to Management

    Changing people without promoting the product is a waste of time. Could that many people be stupid?


  11. The work/life balance is great. The job is demanding but the environment is friendly.
