I couldn't ask for a better place to work when just moved to Australia - News Corp is the place where you can pursue your dreams if you decided to dedicate yourself to media business. Career opportunities are enormous and people who work in News Corp definitely know what "Team" means.

Of course, everyone goes through their ups and downs but in News Corp even if you don't deliver your best performance, you will be supported and motivated to do your best next time.

Through my employment with News Corp Australia i have not only furthered my existing skills but also gained new skills to which allowed me to further my career from line leader to production manager on the night shift.
Learning new skills provided the ability to not only think outside the square to solve and prevent incidents, within the busy working environment and better manage the overall workplace environment for the staff where maximum production was produced with as little fuss as possible.

I worked for news corp for less than a year but it was great experience overall. Worked in a very diverse team where managers and colleagues are very supportive and ready to help and encourages work-life balance. Great office and perfect location, very close to central station.

Was in a Sales Role in Direct Sale for 3 years and went through many drastic changes including two redundancies.
Was hired purely as an inbound agent working only Monday to Friday as was described on the job description but then a month in some groups had to start working Sundays without proper time and a half pay.


Market managers and sales consultants were then merged to do the same role but with significant differences in pay.


Were told to shut down rumours of redundancies and that our jobs are safe then General Manager announced a redundancy a month later but hired more "talent" in the Brisbane office to do the same role.

An organisation which offers an opportunity to learn. Quite a lot regarding marketing media channels, advertising and sales.
A lot of contact is made between upper and lower management, exposure to corporate culture is one of the biggest takeaways.

An entry level role that would be no more than a stepping stone for ones career.

So many opportunities to improve and so little interest from exec. Slow and resistant to change so fast becoming a dinosaur. If you have no real ambition beyond paying the bills then this is the place to be.
Pros

Cons

Fast paced and challenging work environment due to the nature of the industry. Learned to be resilient, adapt at change management and excellent continuity planning. Direct line management were engaged and inclusive however executive leadership lacked communication and direction.
Hardest aspect of News Corp was trying to establish consistency for the team when objectives continually shifted. Most enjoyable was working with a committed team, fast paced and constantly changing environment also suited my leadership style
Pros
Dedicated staff, competitive salaries
Cons
lack of communication from Executive Leaders
