    Pros

    People, company, products, processes, professionalism, energy, positive attitude, managers, the team

    I worked at News Corp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    People were professional, fun, friendly, collaborative for the most part. Like any place, you're gonna have politics and a couple of bad apples. My job was to bridge IT and the businesses and that for the most part was working - people were responsive to the mission

    Cons

    Politics can get in the way of the actual job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Turf wars impact morale and execution. What do you do to discourage or discipline such unproductive behaviors....

    I worked at News Corp full-time

    Pros

    Great benefits, nice people (mostly young families)

    Cons

    Like any large company that has been around for a long time, some upper management are stagnant and resistant to change. Not all, just some

    Great place to work and plenty of scope for growth internally. Sometimes it can be easy to go unrecognised.

    Pros

    Large structured company.
    Plenty of room to move up the ladder if you have the commitment and time!
    They're always looking at the next big thing.
    As long as they keep up to date with growing technology they should continue to be impressive.

    Cons

    It can be a bit of a fight at times to be recognised but thats pretty much the same for all large companies.
    A little bit late adopting their magazines for digital.

    I worked at News Corp part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Few to none.... tHIS COMPANY WITH dIRECtv IS NOT A GOOD eXPERIENCE....

    Cons

    As reference to their DirecTV account, the initial training is adequate. But then they dump immediately into what they call "nesting", which is live calls with what is very minimal, and inadequate support. If you fail to meet their AHT (Average Handle Times). you are let go. I do not recommend this company under any circumstances...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove your "nesting", and build a side-by_side program with an experienced agent. This will increase your new agent retention by an amazing amount...
