    Pros

    Great place to work. Pay is relatively nice for an intern and the staff is very welcoming towards interns. Do well as a College Associate as it says a lot about you and may lead to further opportunities within Fox News, not to mention further down your journey.

    Cons

    Most hours are 9-5. Some interns may have odd hours, such as 4 am to noon due to different show times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep on doing great things!

    I worked at FOX News full-time

    Pros

    It's a job and they're always hiring

    Cons

    Poor Management. Constantly would bring up issues to management and it would never be taken care of. Constantly asked about moving and growth within the company/division and was given the run around. Toxic workplace if you are a minority in any way. You are never rewarded for your hard work. Recognition is given randomly and same goes with opportunities. This place will make you want to change careers if you don't get out soon enough.

    Advice to Management

    Fix everything. Tear down the poor system you have and start over. Recognize people when their work positively impacts the product, not just because they don't "annoy" you. Control the rampant discrimination in the division at the company. Be better.

    I have been working at FOX News full-time

    Pros

    Some great people work there, competitive salaries and very good benefits.

    Cons

    Virtually no resources or technology and understaffing is a major concern.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in people, partnerships and technologies. Embrace innovation.


  5. "Great, if you're Right"

    I worked at FOX News full-time

    Pros

    There are some very talented people to work with.

    Cons

    As long as you don't mind producing a product that is totally motivated by the politics of the company's executives, you're fine.

    I worked at FOX News full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Job security and good benefits.

    Cons

    Harsh work environment, hard to take off days, management overworks employees.

    Advice to Management

    Stop grinding your employees into the ground. It's unacceptable how long you work positions higher than your salary without being compensated.

    Pros

    The people you work with are all really nice for the most part. Managers are understanding and accommodating to the best of their abilities

    Cons

    The facilities are old and don't look great. Some of the technology is over 10 years old, and the less client facing floors look beat up. The kitchens don't even have coffee machines in them. The bias is also worse than it has been recently

    Advice to Management

    Invest more in keeping up with advancing technology and little perks for employees to help them through the long days. And make an effort to have more realistic and unbiased programming

    Pros

    great organization, takes care of their people

    Cons

    very conservative views, sometimes misses things

    Advice to Management

    become more mid stream

    I have been working at FOX News full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits
    Good vacation allowance
    Flexible Schedule

    Cons

    No where to climb for creative art oriented positions. If you are a Graphic Designer or a daily Graphics Artist, don't spend more that two years of your career here. Unless your interested in crossing into a more managerial corporate position. Lots of repetitive template updating, very few creative assignments. And when they do give you something to design you have to find the time in between your daily graphics work quota. After a while this becomes uninspiring.

    Pros

    Job Stability, Pay, reliable merit-based raises.

    Cons

    Middle Management is abusive. Not a place to learn.
    HR enables abusive managers

    Advice to Management

    It can take 2 years for a skilled employee to full get up to speed. If they leave because of the toxic environment, your productivity takes a real hit.
