    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.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox Television full-time

    Pros

    Great place to work, good people & benefits. Couldn't ask for a better location in Century City.

    Cons

    The HR department is basically useless. When you need to hire someone, plan on doing the majority of the recruiting yourself.

    Advice to Management

    There are some very talented & some not so talented people at Fox, but the not so talented are often promoted over the talented.

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

    Pros

    The pay is good. The benefits are good. The facility is nice, there is ample parking. The facility was built out in 2013, so it's fairly new. Union Shop.

    Cons

    The management staff is less than competent. There has been some high level turnover as of late and many workers have left and not been replaced. The company is dragging its feet trying to discourage workers from supporting the Union.

    Advice to Management

    Be reasonable with negotiations. It could be done by now and we could get a break from negotiating over little things like just cause and seniority.

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

    Pros

    I was fortunate enough to have an amazing boss so my work life balance was amazing. half days before holidays, ability to work from home if needed. The amount of workload you get is great for your resume and Fox itself has a great reputation

    Cons

    No internal promotions. I was hired to join a team only to find out that I was the team. I did the work of 4 people and although stressful I was able to accomplish everything. When it came time for a management position that opened, I was over looked and had to train the person that was hired from the outside. Also Pay is not that great.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a go-to person...promote, you will get loyalty
