    Pros

    Interesting work, intelligent supervisor, good work/life balance, close to everything in NYC.

    Cons

    HR allows a work environment that is great for some but not others. They are aware of the problem children in the company and allow bad behavior to continue ad infinitum. No set policy on working from home so some people get the perk and some don’t. 21CF has done a great job at clearing out the negative employees. News Corp should follow soon before the ones who should be staying and making great contributions look elsewhere.

    Advice to Management

    Pay close (much closer than now) attention to what your employees are saying, how they’re saying it and what they’re doing. Are they always working on News Corp work while in the office? Are they working at all? You can learn a lot and will be able to make informed decisions because change is really needed. A calm and respectful working environment is what you want to foster and just a few are spoiling the otherwise excellent atmosphere.

    I worked at News Corp full-time

    Pros

    Fairly challenging work but mostly reasonable in terms of work-life balance. Wonderful vacation package that almost can't be beat. My co-workers were amazing.

    Cons

    A lot of restructuring with little vision, upward mobility can be a challenge, management was pretty weak and short sighted. Also, pit against each other so collaboration was minimal due to infighting.

    Pros

    - Pretty focused on staying up to date with technology
    - Work/life balance available depending on your manager

    Cons

    Implementations executed without fully keeping the support team abreast of these changes. Pretty much the last to know.

    Advice to Management

    Promote from within.
    Informed the support team about new changes and technologies so they can better be prepared.
