    I worked at News Corp full-time (More than 3 years)

    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.
