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

    Pros

    Few to none.... tHIS COMPANY WITH dIRECtv IS NOT A GOOD eXPERIENCE....

    Cons

    As reference to their DirecTV account, the initial training is adequate. But then they dump immediately into what they call "nesting", which is live calls with what is very minimal, and inadequate support. If you fail to meet their AHT (Average Handle Times). you are let go. I do not recommend this company under any circumstances...

    Advice to Management

    Remove your "nesting", and build a side-by_side program with an experienced agent. This will increase your new agent retention by an amazing amount...

    Pros

    nothing really I hate every thing there

    Cons

    It is very political environment, they are not professional and can't handle any criticism.

    Advice to Management

    be fair and honest. Also get rid of your current middle management team, there are not good and all the employees know about that. I've not heard anything but bad stuff from people who are working there.

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

    Pros

    I worked with a lot of great people who we're really talented and committed. I learned from my peers while I was there.

    Cons

    Projects went from super important and urgent to not as important as the next shiny thing.
    I didn't learn from senior management or get much support during the tough times.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff to be their best.

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

    Pros

    Always the people make the place worth while. They did have a flexible working model and were trying to improve the culture

    Cons

    Homophobic and misogynistic. At the time managers had a blind eye approach if they were not directly involved. There was a lot of upheaval with an organisation that was undergoing transformation. However their appeared to be a self serving approach from senior management at the time. Very little support for innovation or progressive business approaches

    Advice to Management

    Continue on the path of transformation but exercise integrity with your words and actions. It will create a cohesive and productive working environment if you stop the sabotage to protect your possitions.

    Pros

    Some people, mainly on the digital floor are nice work with.

    Cons

    Antiquated view of digital publishing. By the time editors understand the benefits of a digital product we may in the next millennium. Self serving environment which only protects those in power.

    Advice to Management

    Trust your team, their are actually people who know a little about digital.

    Pros

    A few really great minds. Some passionate creative professionals. Amazing friendships formed.

    Cons

    No accountability. Bullying, passive aggression is rife. Little to no support from direct manager. HR scared to challenge dictators and narcissists. No processes. Very unprofessional.

    Advice to Management

    Hire skilled people managers. Show heart. Provide flexibility. Stop cutting heads and then. Zero morale, no respect and crushed pride. Requires a full overhaul of managers to weed out toxic behaviour.
