    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox full-time

    Pros

    - Good pay, good benefits, good people
    - Advanced screenings of movies
    - The studio lot is so cool!
    - Hybrid car reimbursement program (up to $3K)!
    - The mentor program is a great, but I wish it was more than just one introduction meeting
    - We get access to all of FOX's library online
    - There are two gyms (one in the plaza and one on the lot)
    - Good food on campus

    Cons

    - Working in the plaza feels very, very corporate
    - My floor (legal) is so ghetto looking with hardly any decorations and bad paint. It's kind of embarrassing. Other floors like 5 and 6 look amazing and feel like you actually work in entertainment
    - New hires have to park off-campus and take a shuttle to work... and it can take up to a year to get a spot in the plaza? Absolutely terrible and adds like 20 minutes to my commute
    - The potential Disney/Fox merger has everybody on edge, but that's with any merger

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It is good to work at a new place and I am very shy so I want to get out their and face my fears.

    Cons

    I don´t know if I will have time to be the things I also want to be and I want to spend time with my family

    Advice to Management

    I think you should have more people work at 20th centruy Fox so when it is a holiday or something that involves spending time with your family you should choose other people to play the part for the day and then come back whenever they can.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time

    Pros

    Loved the film slate and employee amenities while working at Fox. A fun place to work with a great culture.

    Cons

    I found that it was very challenging to move up in the company, not just for myself but for others that I noticed as well.

    Advice to Management

    As far as the creative team is concerned, taking assessment of head count and performance reviews to make sure teams have the resources and support needed would be helpful.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is competitive and promotions depend on who you work for and what projects (visibility) you work on.

    Lots of perks: vanpool, lunch time screenings, tea & coffee, on lot restaurants, studio store, gym, dry cleaning, car wash, valet parking (when structure is full), food truck Friday, bbqs, Holiday party, summer BBQ. so many to list. There was never a dull day on the Fox lot. They film on the lot so you see so many cool things from TV shows to feature films being shot.

    Cons

    Ever since they announced the Disney acquisition, morale has been low. Lots of uncertainty. No one knows who will stay and who will get cut. That’s why I left.
