    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.

    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!
