    Company has not dished out raises in years to the employees at the hub.
    Performing the work of 5 people with demandingly high standards for the insulting pay of one person.
    Extreme lack of flexibility as an employee.
    Dealing with bargaining tactics that make it virtually impossible to reach a standard collective bargaining agreement.

    Shake off your sense of corporate entitlement and take care of the people who work way too hard to protect your revenue.

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

    Pros

    One of the best aspects about working at Twentieth Century Fox Television is the people. Great group of colleagues and executives who I really enjoyed collaborating with every day. A flat, lean organization that allows exposure to all aspects of the business and access to all levels for those willing to do the work at hand and willing to take on additional responsibilities.

    Cons

    The recent restructuring across all business units at 21st Century Fox is an unfortunate reality of the entertainment industry. It is the normal course of growth and contraction at a corporation.

    Pros

    Pay is above average. You can arrive late for work every single day. Great if you have to deal with traffic.

    Cons

    If you can pretend to be happy and friendly and have no opinions of your own, you might like it here. Beware of local HR.

    Advice to Management

    Send your managers to manager training! A seminar, something... please!

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox Television (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good benefits, sick time and vacation time. Great experience working at network level.

    Cons

    Favoritism is rampant here. There are also plenty of good operators who go unrecognized for their accomplishments and catching major errors. Certain individuals are singled out, depending on the mood of the manager (of course). Remember, the reason why the union was started was because of management.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people and treat everyone equally.
