    good to get your foot in the media door but no room for growth

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

    Pros

    good team culture, location, office space, young sales team

    Cons

    management unsupportive of anything that will encourage growth as an employee, horrible commission structure, way too much turnover, unrealistic KPI's, incentives minimal, not enough digital training, a tendency to launch products before testing and have them fail in front of live customers, below average pay

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    invest in your staff, allow them to grow in areas they are passionate about, pay them what the rest of the industry think they are worth, be more flexible with KPI's - dont just think about being innovative, actually BE innovative

    difficult to understand who actually was making the decisions.

    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.
