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

    Pros

    Good news experience, lots of overtime

    Cons

    Management is poor and disorganized, quantity of news over quality of news product, low morale consistently, revolving door, low pay, long hours, poor work life balance, management does not treat employees with respect.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to show your employees you value them; reward good work; say thank you; care more about the visual quality of your newscast by hiring experienced people who care about what they do.

    Pros

    Direct team worked great together. Execs valued family and personal goals. Micro management minimal.

    Company is going through a significant reorganization in the past 6 months . I cannot speak for the integrity of the work environment moving forward.

    I worked at FOX News full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Professional environment, good equipment and editorial content. Great staff. Occasionally the exclusive journalism opportunities to arrive and the staff on many occasions I had an excellent opportunity to provide its audience with extended format coverage

    Cons

    Too much micro managing okay usually Stafford get involved in too much speculation rather than placing an airport on just covering the facts also it was easy for smaller stories to get in the way of the larger journalistic value that was in place

    Advice to Management

    Trust your employees

    Pros

    Tight-knit group driven to do good journalism. "Fair and balanced" not a marketing slogan for many of us. You are part of the Fox family...

    Cons

    Heavy workload, high expectations for performance on constant deadline. Work-life balance difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Spend the money on freelancers, more staff to help distribute workload better.
