    Conservative leaning

    Recognize your employees' talents and bring them along a solid growth path. Reduce top heavy senior management. Distribute annual bonuses on equal footing such as 10% of each person's annual salary. Only one division followed this direction.

    I worked at FOX Broadcasting (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Fox operates with an underdog culture that breeds ideas and innovation. Management is always seeking new and better ways to do what has never been done before.

    Cons

    The "more, more, more-never enough-what's next culture is a great way to learn and thrive, but it comes at price, and often leads to burn-out. The pressure to succeed is very intense and top-down communication is not great.

    Pros

    Everybody minds their own. Managers/supervisors will never micromanage you. Everyone helps each other out which is great when you can't make it in and knowing you have colleagues there to cover for you.

    Cons

    Pay could be better especially if you already have years of experience.
    Some of the reps and agents you deal with get pretty annoying so you have to make sure you are able to communicate with them and stand your ground or they will swirl you around like a laundry machine.

    Advice to Management

    Management have been superb. I have no complaints on them other than, pay me more :)

    Pros

    I worked at Fox for a long time. It's a good dependable place to work. If you want a steady gig this is a good place for you.

    They are not into growing you or promoting anyone. If you want better compensation and career growth only work here for two years max.

    They need to be less complacent.
