    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox for more than 3 years

    Pros

    good benefits through teamsters. freelance so days off as needed.

    Cons

    total glass ceiling as far as income...union negociated wages so no bonuses or commision. nepotism is rife so unless you know someone little chance of promotion. hourly pay so long days needed to make a good income. this means a very poor life/work balance.

    Advice to Management

    promote based on skillset rather than family ties.

    I worked at Twentieth Century Fox full-time

    Pros

    Generally, good benefits, opportunities to network across the studio via diversity groups/organizations, and reputable name for your resume. Depending on your level of ambition and whether (or not) you have career goals, easy to get away with doing nothing and maintain employment, due to many hierarchical layers and comfy "legacy" employees.

    Cons

    Egos, gossip/social drama, and robotic conformity is all over the place. Employees are not valued and treated as expendable. Promotions and career growth stems from years worked at the company, instead of measurable performance and experience. Still lacking innovation in most divisions. Outside consultants are always contracted to develop and implement new ideas (probably one of the many reasons why budgets for... hiring new full-time employees are low).

    Advice to Management

    If a company is run like a corporate machine, be mindful of the type of talent that will leave or stay in the long-run. Culture is key, especially in entertainment. The push for "breaking down silos" is a nice thought, but not embraced. Company ethics are governed from the top to the bottom, so if a managing executive isn't "practicing what is being preached", culture will not change.

    I have been working at Twentieth Century Fox full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Good benefits, some fun perks (movie screenings, BBQ's, employee events) and many nice people to work among.

    Cons

    HR doesn't seem very interested in taking a proactive stance towards "bad" managers and the sense of executive "entitlement" is too prevalent. HR often views the employee lower on the rung as the problem rather than the "bad" manager. Pay is also on the low-side.

    Advice to Management

    Take much more of a proactive stance to weed out "problem" managers (i.e., anonymous surveys, etc.) Work to break down silos and create a more collaborative environment between business units and within business units.
