Great place to be taught in a nurturing atmosphere
Producer (Former Employee) –  Sydney, NSW12 January 2016
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.

Really dog eat dog job
Advertising Specialist (Current Employee) –  Adelaide SA8 January 2019
This company is like a revolving door because the staff are treated so badly by management. I have seen about 27 or more people leave the company over an 18 month period and thats just my floor. The KPIs are so unrealistic to hit and everyone is under so much pressure to meet them or you get chucked on a performance plan (no longer get commission) if they don't reach them.Every one I work with is unhappy, depressed and looking to get out of the company. Stay clear if you want a work force you actually want to work at.
Pros
Permanent

Sales Based News Papper ads
Role Market Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW3 December 2018
The company has high expectations of staff but don't provide any one hands incentives for managing the the decrease interest in reading the news papers, therefore the sales team loses money as customers leave the paper for online services.

Their sales goals aren't realistic and they keep moving their demands of a staff member to make them earn more money for a company that will soon be out of business people move to online forms of media and news consumption.
Pros
free coffee and tea, good people working there
Cons
micromanagement / no team 'feel' unrealistic views of their future

A nice place to work
Sales Manager (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW7 November 2018
It's a nice place to work. Close to transport and has good amenities. People that worked at News for are down to earth mostly. Like most large organisations, certain management heads do tend to play favoritism, especially in the sales division.

Good place to work.
Graphic Designer (Former Employee) –  Townsville QLD1 August 2018
Newscorp is a good place to work. Made a lot of good friends and contacts there however with share prices falling at Newscorp in the last few years I was forced to take a redundancy in order for the company to stay competitive. This is no means a reflection of my work or ability nor integrity.
Pros
Free lunches, functions, corporate tickets. Food people.
Cons
Lack of advancement for artists.

A place with great potential but complexities of a large business such as this lacks agility in the digital business
Group Digital Manager (Current Employee) –  Sydney NSW10 July 2018
-A typical work day is about 12 hours with supporting 21 sales people which includes both client meetings/strategy sessions with sales/ data deep dives for retention and inumerable internal management meetings.
- Have learnt to be clear, decisive and provide high direction as there are too many tasks. Choice management on time is critical tending towards higher ROI activity.
- Very good vision but clear lack of the "how"
- Good work culture
- No clear charter of KPI's and responsibilities within different departments which leads to buck passing in which the customer suffers the most.
- The potential of what News Corp has in resources to become market leaders

Was good experience
Work Experience (Former Employee) –  Surry Hills NSW18 May 2018
Lots of scanning documents, checking paperwork was scanned correctly.
I learned that payroll its terribly boring and I will not be pursuing a career in this industry.
Management was alright - because it was a temporary work experience, management was unorganised in what work id be undertaking, so I often had no work to do
All the people were nice, but it was a lot of older people
Hardest part was staring at a computer all day - great way to induce a headache
Most enjoyable part - lunch break

Good place to work
GRAPHIC ARTIST (Former Employee) –  Sydney NSW16 May 2018
Enjoyed working here but seems all the work is going overseas due to costs, but that seems to be the modern trend
I never got to do much digital work only doing the odd bit here and there, I was probably in the wrong department

Never know if your job is safe. Things change all the time, you never know if your job will be safe. You deal with a variety of people, internal and external.

Administration Assistant
Administration Assistant (Former Employee) –  Melbourne VIC29 January 2018
While the job did not consist of much administration work, the job was mainly packing and organizing merchandise to be mailed. The job was very easy and didn't require much thought process. You could listen to music and keep your head down and get a lot done that way. Management lacked experience and was often too busy to direct us, therefore we had to improvise and take initiative way too often. Overall the job was easy and is nice for a few months to make some easy money. Would not recommend if looking for advancement within the company.
