    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a new focus on an inclusive culture. It is coming from the top down which is helpful in building teams.

    Cons

    It's tough to level-up with so many senior middle management waiting for their turn, so promotions come few and far between.

    Advice to Management

    Adjust for current working conditions. Mobile and off-site work should be encouraged.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time

    Pros

    Free stuff every once in a while.

    Cons

    It is a horrible company. Stay far away. There's no training which keeps the less than mediocre employees who have been there unnecessarily valuable.

    Advice to Management

    Be nicer to your employees. Hire managers who care about the people who work underneath them not ones that are jealous of success.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great benefits and wonderful coworkers

    Cons

    Most executives (not all) have high stress and speak with inappropriate language towards others which caused a low vibrational environment. There was often finger pointing at other departments so business units often didn't get along.

    Advice to Management

    Seek to understand, work collectively with other business units, and practice self-care and mindfulness. If irate, remember the power of language, how it affects the environment and your own image.

    Pros

    Good benefits, some fun perks (movie screenings, BBQ's, employee events) and many nice people to work among.

    Cons

    HR doesn't seem very interested in taking a proactive stance towards "bad" managers and the sense of executive "entitlement" is too prevalent. HR often views the employee lower on the rung as the problem rather than the "bad" manager. Pay is also on the low-side.

    Advice to Management

    Take much more of a proactive stance to weed out "problem" managers (i.e., anonymous surveys, etc.) Work to break down silos and create a more collaborative environment between business units and within business units.

    Pros

    People were great. Work was challenging but was a great work-life balance.

    Cons

    Promotions have to be fought for tooth and nail. Pay is at the bottom of the big 6 studios. Company is very stingy with compensation and raises are very hard to come by.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your people and help them advance their careers.
