    Pros

    Satisfying and fulfilling work if you enjoy challenges.

    Cons

    Openly racist and highly unethical leadership. High turnover if you are a professional of color.

    Advice to Management

    The board and shareholders should terminate the entire leadership team and start fresh.

    Pros

    Good people, good hours, great work/life balance. Nice building, good location in the city...very happy at this company.

    Cons

    With such a large company, it can take quite a bit of time to learn the ropes; processes also take a bit longer than they might at a smaller company

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work, and maintain the generous work-life balance you afford your employees. You might be able to streamline some of your protocol a bit more.

    I worked at News Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    An exciting opportunity. Newscorp has a wealth of content and great variety of brands with which to leverage that content online. Newscorp has the vision to be a major Internet leader down the road.

    Cons

    The brands did not always cooperate as effectively as they could have. There was good understanding of the roles of all the brands but working between them can require some senior management involvement.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline inter-company communication and support initiatives across the holding company. Continue to invest in new technology and don't be afraid to sacrifice old revenue models.
