    “Do More Than Your Job Requires For Success And Growth”

    Current Employee – Producer in New York, NY

    Recommends

    Positive Outlook

    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at FOX News full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    FOX News is a non-union workplace that is loyal to its employees who perform well. I’ve worked there for many years and have received high marks along the way. FOX News will take note of your own work ethic and reward you for such.

    Cons

    This isn’t a “con” that’s exclusive to FOX News. It happens in most jobs, I would assume. One’s job can be quite similar day to day, week to week and year to year. One needs to strive on his/her own to learn new skills that can help one grow.

    Advice to Management

    Encourage employees to suggest better ways of doing things. Perhaps incentivize it.

    “It is better elsewhere”

    Former Employee – IT Developer/Engineer in New York, NY

    Doesn’t Recommend

    Neutral Outlook

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at FOX News full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked there for a long time, 7+ years. I thought things were great, hey I get 3 weeks vacation plus floating holidays. Management would clash with employees sometimes but overall you got your job done. Lots of innovative stuff to work on.

    Cons

    Cost cutting to an extreme, often leaving out the necessities. Zero work life balance. You are always expected to be looking after things. Management who makes unreasonable demands and then has HR back them up. No room for promotion unless you know people. I have seen completely incompetent people promoted up the chain while the real superstars get left behind. Eventually I just got fed up and left. Only then did I realize what a waste this place is.

    Advice to Management

    Work/life balance. Work/life balance. Work/life balance. Can’t say that enough. Ditch the nepotism and really consider who you are putting in senior positions, because it isn’t your best people. Appreciate employees who have been in it for the long haul because they demonstrated loyalty. And don’t cheap out on your tech because that will lead to disaster.

    “Toxic Culture, Tolerance of Unprofessional Behavior, Lack of Appreciation”

    Current Employee – Producer in New York, NY

    Doesn’t Recommend

    Negative Outlook

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Benefits, Decent Pay, Some Good People

    Cons

    Lack of Appreciation, Tolerance of Toxic Behavior, Poor Team Work, Bad Work-Life Balance, Unpredictable Management

    Advice to Management

    Believe it or not, the “only game in town” attitude doesn’t really work towards actually talented employees who can make a living making more money and having more opportunities somewhere else. If you make promises to employees, keep them. Stop tolerating toxic, bad behavior from employees who you deem as your “chosen ones” who “can’t be replaced.” And believe it or not, there are other media companies out there besides Fox News. A lot of the reason it’s “number one” is because of lack of competition. Sadly, creative, imaginative people aren’t really a good fit for this company, which tends to play it safe and stick to the predictable script.
