      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...

      High turnover indicates that the problem is internal.

        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...

        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...

      • "Decent Place to Start Your Career"

        StarStarStarStarStar
          Former Employee - Anonymous Employee 

          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

          Salary is solid for a reporter, as are benefits.

          Cons

          Like most media companies, struggling to adjust to digital. Has resulted in heavy work loads all round.
