    Great benefits, cool company parties, clean facilities

    Cons

    I worked at FOX Broadcasting full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Generally your peers are nice, but...

    Cons

    ... while everyone is nice, the mood is clouded by a shared misery amongst your peers. Management abuses their power, there is little to no support or appreciation for young employees, and everyone is stressed 24/7 either by the pressures of episodic TV or management changing their minds on strategy at the 11th hour.

    Advice to Management

    restructure and re-culture
