Professional, great people, challenging
Freelancer (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCJuly 1, 2017
Although most of the time everyone has a regular schedule, like any typical TV news environment, the schedule is often dictated by current events. There is also a certain level of tension surrounding any live TV situation but it's to be expected and you get used to it. Sometimes decisions from creative management don't make sense but everyone pulls together to meet the challenge and succeed.
Pros
Good people
Cons
they don't pay for parking

A lot of change recently
Producer/Writer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 6, 2017
There's been too much change and lack of stability recently.
Too many unknowns make it hard to plan for a long-term career or even assess what the chances of being successful there may entail.

Decent place for aspiring news folk
Producer (Current Employee) –  New York, NYFebruary 28, 2017
Work/life balance sucks and you are often stuck in horrible shifts until you are finally "remembered" and get a chance to move up. Expect to work all holidays and weekends, which is usual for a news network, but it was much much easier to get time off when working for other networks. Of course all the folks who have been there forever have no problem getting off whatever time they want.
You're literally stuck in a basement with no windows and little chance to run outside and enjoy the day. The good news is, the job isn't going away anytime soon. Once you're in, you're in and if you stick with it, it seems to pay off in the end. Most everyone is fun to work with and it's pretty laid back. Most of the time if you just show up and do you work and mind your own business, you are pretty much left alone. They do encourage you to put in for new positions which open up in which you may move up the ladder, so keep in mind you have to go after them rather than thinking they will come to you.
Pros
It's the top news network in the world. Name and experience carries weight.
Cons
Work life balance

Great experience
Internship (Former Employee) –  New York, NYJanuary 22, 2017
It was a great experience working for a live show production. I received skills and knowledge that I wouldn't be able to learn in a classroom. Hands on experience is always the best kind.

News with flare

Pros
Bay Area living
Cons
Not as good without NBC

Stressful work place
Web Producer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYAugust 5, 2016
I found this to be a stressful work place. I didn't feel valued by the organization. I'm sure your experience will differ depending on your department. I found it a valuable opportunity to understand how the real world of news works.
Pros
fast paced
Cons
high stress, felt expendable

Fox is alright without you
College Associate (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 13, 2016
I found this internship interesting. Communication about the expectations of my duty was less than clear. Many workers in my department appeared to be slacking. Ideas about the overall direction or intention of the organization were not communicated downwards. It made it very difficult to pitch in. Overall, the internship felt like a formality. They had no intention of adding to their register and were capable of functioning without the superfluous college associate or many of their cushioned inveterate staff.
Pros
Free WSJ in building.
Cons
Unclear communication.

Great newsroom experience
Associate Producer (Current Employee) –  Washington, DCFebruary 8, 2016
There's no typical work day as a producer. As a journalist you are covering the White House, Capitol Hill, the Pentagon, and politics. It's about breaking news, getting accurate information, and meeting deadline.
