    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?"

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are pretty good. Perks like free movies, food trucks on the lot, gym membership, rideshare. Paid holidays, standard two weeks of vacation plus floating holidays.

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to market. Promotions pretty much mean you take on more work with less support because you're often promoted in place....not promoted with additional help to do your bigger job.

    Advice to Management

    Tight constraints on headcount lead to stressed out and burnt out employees.Unfortunately good employees are rewarded with more work.

    Pros

    Friendly culture, decent health benefits, matching 401k (6%) and on-lot screenings. Work-life balance is good, but really only available to management.

    Cons

    It's difficult to move up if you don't play your office politics right. Assistants are treated as disposable. 2% annual pay increase isn't enough to keep up with the cost of living in LA.

    Advice to Management

    If someone works for you for the better part of a decade, give them recognition! A raise, a bonus, etc.

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

    Pros

    Access to awesome content, the lot and all things flashy. Get to see free screenings, occasionally see tapings and table reads, meet a lot of new people/networking opportunities.

    Cons

    Not collaborative, they don't care about your growth, rarely any positions between assistant and executive levels, some executives treat their assistants pretty poorly, terrible pay.

    Advice to Management

    Assistants work hard to make their executive's lives easier and generally seamless. The least management could do is increase their wages to a livable wage and maybe certain executives can treat their assistants less like dirt.
