    Pros

    Free Foxtel Some genuinely fantastic people Exciting content to work with

    Cons

    CEO drives a culture of fear - everybody too scared to make decisions in case he doesn’t agree No insight led strategy - direction comes from gut feel of execs and changes are made on a whim Toxic behaviour from certain staff is rewarded No reward or recognition - churn and burn culture News Corp relationship is No.1 priority - unbelievable amount of time and resource spent on doing print ads to please Murdoch’s (2-3 per day per newspaper). There is zero evidence they work, yet Senior Management don’t question it Career development and progression not a priority Struggle to see how company can still exist in 12-18 months
