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

    Pros

    Good pay, lots of vacation and company holidays

    Cons

    News Corp owns lots of very different business units and they want to shove them all into the same way of doing things. This doesn't work. The leaders are all in New York, they don't know or care about any of the people they can't see. They are not about doing things the right way, just doing things their way. Be very careful about going to work for for News Corp in any kind of technologist role.

    I worked at News Corp full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    People are generally nice overall and the work is interesting.

    Cons

    There are some very nice people at this company however there are very specific and toxic personalities that are allowed to flourish and disrupt. The decentralized structure and continued accommodation of key toxic personnel makes the climate unnecessarily stressful and stifles any attempts to innovate and streamline processes which is extremely necessary. Micromanaging to the point of ridiculousness. Also, not very good on diversity as young and new are run out by the old guard who are resistant to change.

    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.
