    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.
