The role serviced the Business section of The Australian newspaper which prints between 8.30 - 10 pm 6 nights a week. The busy and collaborative environment of the newsroom presented daily challenges; this in turn led to exploring more of the technological aspects of Adobe software to reduce turn-around times on regular graphic elements; an example would be utilising Bloomberg graph data exported as either SVG or as Excel format for manipulation in Adobe Illustrator.I was also involved in an early push in creating interactive web content. Late stage of my time at News was solely focused on the print side.
Pros
6 weeks holiday
Cons
late hours

There was a workplace culture to put in long hours with no paid overtime and no appreciation. There was even an atmosphere to work at your desk throughout lunch. The company then reduced 3/4 of its staff to suit profits. My local management was fantastic, but was hobbled by the less-than-great staff above. We also had to make the best possible content with ridiculously outdated equipment, and little to no budget to try and improve assets.
Pros
Great local management, great colleagues
Cons
Long hours with no overtime, outdated equipment

From the first moment I started at this company, I knew I was going to enjoy working there! The team of work colleagues were supportive, fun to work with and it was a brilliant workplace. The work itself was varied and interesting, so no day was the same and the staff and management were EXCELLENT! I LOVED working there. Over and above any previos job I'd had to that point, it was the BEST job I'd ever had, and I will dearly miss the characters I've met at the place. Wishing everyone there all the very best!
Pros
Great work environment, fantastic co-workers, varied work.
Cons
The fact that the job ended, due to the down turn in the economy!

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.

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.

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
