    Pros

    Great company to work. Excellent benefits. Good environment with co-workers and executives.

    The office where I worked was old fashion style, no natural light. I would suggest more open space and areas to get more privacy for business phone call, etc.

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Superb benefits. Convenient commute from the Westside of LA. Interesting IP to work on.

    Cons

    A truly bizarre culture of putting people with absolutely no relevant experience in charge of important initiatives. Literally never seen anything like it. Structural mediocrity driven by an old boys club rooted in ego and power.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people with direct experience in their area and then listen to them.

    Anyway they can take pay from you, they will

    The worst employer I've ever had, and I've worked for mcdonalds

    Thanks for sharing your experience. We're not familiar with 20th Century Fox having employees "deliver paper." Would love more information. Perhaps you have the wrong "Fox?"
