    Pros

    Job security within a volatile industry.

    Cons

    News America is cutting Account Director positions in an effort to save money in a declining industry. This has resulted in a bottleneck at the Coordinator/Associate levels where employees essentially wait in line (for years typically) for the next AD position to open even if they show exceptional potential.

    Advice to Management

    Stop eliminating Account Director positions- you are driving your top talent away from the company.

    I have been working at News America Marketing part-time

    Pros

    Work your own schedule. Work by yourself.

    Cons

    Low pay. Your home and your automobile will be turned into "storage units" for a myriad of boxes of supplies and ads. Yet, when coupon machines, batteries to keep them running, hardware to install ads are needed you do without. Won't pay over 29 hours per week. They continue to add work, and you're "encouraged" to put anything over 29 hours on next pay period, which is ILLEGAL. Constant emails/ texts/phonecalls. You're even pestered when taking UNPAID time off with phone calls and emails. Wear and tear on automobile is tremendous with little compensation. ZERO appreciation for their employees. Company has been sued several times for unscrupulous behaviors to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars. Google "News America Marketing lawsuits" and you'll learn all you need to know about this company.

    Advice to Management

    Get some ethics.

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

    Pros

    - Good exposure to large brands
    - Sales training is okay
    - Benefits are okay

    Cons

    - Very political
    - They expect conformity. They do not encourage independent thinking at this company.
    - Not much flexibility, many people are afraid to ask for lenience when personal issues come up
    - Once in sales, always in sales. You cannot switch into another department if you decide you don't want to pursue sales with them. They will ask you to leave.
    - Very "sorority-like" group of people and no diversity. The offices tend to be very cliquey.
    - Behind the times. They just started offering digital advertising very recently and only out of necessity. They are not an industry thought leader but are now trying to position themselves as one.
    - Their tech/software are WAY behind. Causes for a lot of internal delays and makes things take much longer than they really need to.

    Advice to Management

    - Encourage independent thinkers and stop trying to have people conform. That is not how company innovation and growth happen.
    - Mix up your hiring process to hire more diverse people.
