I worked at News Corp full-time for more than a year

Pros

Benefits are above industry standards, discretionary bonuses, decent vacation, unlimited sick.

Cons

Micro-Management style, individualism not collaborative, culture of fear and intimidation, lack of resources, no upper mobility. rigid set of standards, refusal to consider different point of view, low employee moral, toxic culture, high turnover, inept people in management positions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Provide your upper level management (EVP and Directors) with sensitivity training, management training should be given to those individuals who come into positions without the required supervisory skill set. High turnover should be a red flag and corrective action should be taken. Encourage an open door policy and feedback. Encourage innovation, thinking outside the box and hold everyone accountable for their actions including inept EVP and Directors.

    I have been working at News Corp full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Major brands, leading position in Australia, some smart people. Some growth left in some of the digital businesses like Moshtix or The Australian.

    Cons

    Major budget cuts, revenue declines, plenty of fear in the organisation. News historically was in a position of strength and you could count on developing a solid career there. Now, many of the more interesting business are only loosely affiliated (Fox Sports, Foxtel) and the core newspaper business is in a state of managed decline.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The culture of honesty and communication under Harto seems to have disappeared. It may be too late to get that back, but it's worth trying.
