    Pros

    Great money, young people, good opportunity to learn to multi-task while under pressure.

    Cons

    Team leaders don't understand the systems and crm tools enough to problem solve when a DSP has a serious issue that could prevent an advertising campaign being booked.

    High school environment.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train the team leaders in the contact center to use all of the booking systems so that a DSP has a reliable helper available rather than someone just monitoring call KPIs

    Pros

    Some people, mainly on the digital floor are nice work with.

    Antiquated view of digital publishing. By the time editors understand the benefits of a digital product we may in the next millennium. Self serving environment which only protects those in power.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your team, their are actually people who know a little about digital.

    Pros

    Global company with lots of opportunities.

    Cons

    If you get an obnoxious stuck up management, which a lot of them are, your hard working days are taken for granted, you are just another number in that case.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need management change heads of upwards. People under are not valued. Culture is really demoralizing.

    I worked at News Corp full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Always the people make the place worth while. They did have a flexible working model and were trying to improve the culture

    Cons

    Homophobic and misogynistic. At the time managers had a blind eye approach if they were not directly involved. There was a lot of upheaval with an organisation that was undergoing transformation. However their appeared to be a self serving approach from senior management at the time. Very little support for innovation or progressive business approaches

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue on the path of transformation but exercise integrity with your words and actions. It will create a cohesive and productive working environment if you stop the sabotage to protect your possitions.

    Former Employee - Program Manager in Sydney
    Former Employee - Program Manager in Sydney

    I worked at News Corp as a contractor (more than an year)

    Pros

    Very friendly workplace, led by good management. Very good and experienced editors. IT area just went through a major upgrade. Program was well run, delivered an ERP on-time and on-budget by CTO.

    Cons

    Old fashioned leadership. Need to upgrade their views especially when challenged by digital technologies. Although IT has been upgraded, old ways of doing things need to be abandoned.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Acknowledge that digital technologies are here to stay and will expand into print.
