    Free foxtel is a good perk

    CEO needs to approve everything - severe micro managing. Don’t use data or insights - decisions made on a whim from CEO No trust in staff to do their job No career development Culture of fear (driven from CEO)

    Advice to Management

    Get a new CEO

    I worked at Foxtel full-time

    Pros

    Great people, work environment and IQ box on your desk. Really loved working for Foxtel.

    Cons

    The culture has apparently not been the best since the massive redundancies once Netflix came on the scene. Salaries were not great, unless you were in management. Not a lot of effort made to progress careers - you really had to be motivated and propel yourself forward or you would just stagnate.

    Advice to Management

    Get a better HR team - they were rotten at handling the redundancies.

    Pros

    Free Foxtel for employees Industry and business that is experiencing change. New management seem to be embracing challenge and doing things different than in the past

    Cons

    Owned by Rupert Murdoch and Newscorp IT systems are woefully out of date and inefficient

    Advice to Management

    Tear out the IT systems and start again. So much time, effort and money wasted with antiquated technology
