Pros

Ability to work on a variety of different things. Brand name company with growth potential. Working there impresses your friends--especially if they are conservatives. Colleagues are nice and try to be helpful. Lack of back-stabbing. Often can feel like a cozy family business.

Cons

Organization does not share information across different companies. Functions are very bureaucratic. Organization is a bit short -sighted. Management does not convey that they value higher education. It's a bit of a boys club. There is not a lot of communication from the executives suites. You often find out what is going on at News Corp from someone outside the organization. A media organization should be able to communicate to its own employees. Sometimes when you come to work, you feel like you are entering a black hole--one in which you have to figure everything out yourself. Physical offices are a bit sparse. Face time seems to be valued even if you can be productive working remotely. There is lot a lot of professional, mature support staff.

Advice to Management

Create an executive training program. Locate real talent in the company and support initiatives Create a new energy. Communicate more to employees about what is going on. Create promotional and lateral move opportunities across all subsidiaries. Foster a common corporate culture and a spirit of cooperation amongst different companies. Hire a top management consultanting firm to fix the cultural issues. Allow people to work remotely. Be more modern!

    Approves of CEO

    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.


  2. "Not all get recognised or rewarded"
