Very high on learning

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at News Corp

ProsLot of interesting work done. A good learning experience. Not hierarchy driven. Very encouraging to new ideas. very friendly people

ConsNot many cons to write about. Its a good place to work. The work hours are stressful. Due to the dynamic industry the timings can be steep

Advice to Senior ManagementThere is a need to breed in house talent to take up positions of responsibility. Developing cross functional capabilities is still nascent.

It's a great place to work. I love the people and atmosphere.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at News Corp

ProsThe opportunities for cross training and advancement are great especially because the company is so large. Recent reorganizations have improved the efficiencies within the organization.

ConsThe communication could be better and teams could take a less silo-ed approach to the business and customers.

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue investing in your people and streamlining processes where possible. Redundancies and poor communication not only slow progress but expose weakness to prospects and customers.

ProsThe starting pay / benefits is better than the industry average.
