    I worked at FOX News full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    They’ll take you with little experience so they can pay you next to nothing

    Cons

    Low Salary compared to other companies, TOXIC work environment and they’ll work you 12 hours a day & still pick you apart. They’re the type of company that takes advantage of their employees and try to undermine your confidence to get you to work twice as long and hard for very little money.

    Pros

    Great benefits. Great PTO plan. Great for those who love a challenge.

    Cons

    So many changes with management over the last few years. Sometimes the responsibilities of the role aren't clearly defined. Seems like multiple departments aren't staffed adequately.

    Pros

    Great and talented co-workers. Good benefits. Good location, subway accessible (near Penn station).

    Cons

    Not a good place for expectant mothers and people with families. Poor work/life balance. For example managers give women who are withchild a hard time taking time off for doctor appointments. Management is not willing to work with employees in terms of switching shifts. For example: if you have an emergency or need to go to a doctor’s appointment to avoid burning a personal day and wanted to switch a shift with someone for just one day switching shifts wasn’t permitted. Management hand picks who their golden children are and the rest of the worker bees are underpaid. Extra projects are thrown on to you 2 hours before the end of your shift then expected to be done the next day. You weren’t allowed to stay late for OT either. Always had to defend oneself. Always interrogated and had to have an explanation ready. If you left on-time you were still accused of “rushing”. The manager would state "you don’t seem like you want to be here.” Inquired about a higher position and was told to re-visit in 4yrs…Really Managers address issues with their staff in interrogating emails going back n forth 8 times then pulled into a side office to be yelled at some more. Would not just stick to work related topics or concerns she was inquiring about; but then transition it into an interrogation. In their mind everyone is replaceable. Very talented staff but they all leave due to the ongoing verbal abuse and unprofessionalism.

    Pros

    FOX News is a non-union workplace that is loyal to its employees who perform well. I've worked there for many years and have received high marks along the way. FOX News will take note of your own work ethic and reward you for such.

    Cons

    This isn't a "con" that's exclusive to FOX News. It happens in most jobs, I would assume. One's job can be quite similar day to day, week to week and year to year. One needs to strive on his/her own to learn new skills that can help one grow.

    I worked at FOX News full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked there for a long time, 7+ years. I thought things were great, hey I get 3 weeks vacation plus floating holidays. Management would clash with employees sometimes but overall you got your job done. Lots of innovative stuff to work on.

    Cons

    Cost cutting to an extreme, often leaving out the necessities. Zero work life balance. You are always expected to be looking after things. Management who makes unreasonable demands and then has HR back them up. No room for promotion unless you know people. I have seen completely incompetent people promoted up the chain while the real superstars get left behind. Eventually I just got fed up and left. Only then did I realize what a waste this place is.
