    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.

    I worked at News Corp full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Exceptionally smart leadership. Great location. Generally nice people. Great experience for professionals who seek to understand corporate America at its best, and for people to absorb deep knowledge of their field because News Corp has great SMEs.

    Cons

    Not a lot of training for "managers & below." Peers either keep to themselves or become clique-ish. The term "every man for him/herself" can be used well here because there isn't a great deal of teamwork taking place at News Corp.

    I found that no sense of achievement came from completing a project at News Corp. I didn't have a manager who patted me on the back when I did a great job, and that was fine for me. But if you're looking for that, News Corp is the wrong place for you. Similarly, if you're looking for a manager to tell you what you're doing wrong and who will help you get better, News Corp is also the wrong place for you.

    Advice to Management

    Plan and develop opportunities to train and develop your employees.

    I worked at News Corp as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Extremely coordinated tax department, with very competend and friendly people. I had a great experience while I was working at News Corp.

    Cons

    Sometimes there would not be much work for me to do as an intern, but everyone was always very helpful and understanding when I got swamped with things to do

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest that you keep your interns occupied and keep trying to teach them more. The internship program at News Corp is great, and I was completely happy with it.
