    Pros

    Company car. Insurance benefits are about what keeps you there. Or complacency.

    Cons

    Unreasonable workload and unreasonable demands. They pretend to care about work/life balance but expect you to work 10 hr days and the weekends even days taken off. You may manage up to 35 employees alone (no assistant managers). Training is sink or swim for an “entry level” management position. Very low salary for amount of work and dedication expected. I would not recommend this job to anyone.

    Advice to Management

    Be realistic. 40 to 50 hr workload is what should be expected. Not upwards of 65 to 70, without area challenges such as geography or open positions. Compensate your employees accordingly. From MMOs down to In Store Reps. Give reps their 15.00 back for internet or don’t demand email compliance. Give managers full internet and cell phone compensation or don’t expect them to be on call around the clock. Give managers relief by way of assistant managers. 30 employees spread out over 100s of miles is not realistic or practical. Formulate a structured training program instead of training courses to be taken at your manager’s discretion. Value your workers. Take care of them, don’t take advantage of them. People in the field work exceptionally hard to stay afloat trying to keep up and too many of them are unhappy.

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

    Pros

    The people are nice. Big offices across major cities. You get great exposure to major brands/agencies. Good experience right out of college.

    Cons

    News America has a very corporate and political culture. Upper Management expects you to "Sip the Kool-Aid". If you do not grab coffee with Executives on a monthly basis, they won't care to get to know you. This exposure is far greater than your actual skills, talent and industry knowledge. Growth potential is extremely limited and based on who the Execs favor. Additionally, Account Director positions are constantly being cut and Account Associate's are stuck waiting for a promotion that may never happen.

    Managers are typically the same age and tenure as their direct reports with no past managerial experience.

    Account Directors and above get special trainings and product knowledge--nothing is shared downward, especially on the digital team.

    News America positions themselves as a leader in the digital media industry, however, they are years behind in the space. Major room for advancement in order to survive in the fragmented marketplace.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees and care about their professional development

    Be a team leader, not a boss. Leaders want their team to strive, not just focusing on individual goals

    Communicate new product knowledge and advancements

    If you're trying to change the culture, do more to showcase you actually appreciate your employees...(jeans to work not just on Friday's, better bonus structure, more office gatherings, work from home, etc.)
