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.

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.

Little room to move up. Expected to work at all hours
Segment Producer (Former Employee) –  New York, NYMay 21, 2015
I loved my co-workers but the management was awful. There is little to no room to move up. The job is very demanding and highly competitive. You are never guaranteed a holiday and/or weekend off. You are expected to answer your blackberry at all hours and are compensated less than other cable news employees. The bonus is that you have a ton of job security and the people that work with you are generally young and fun. They also have great benefits
Pros
You get to meet high-profile people
Cons
no lunch break, no holidays off, lots of work for little pay

My daily Routine
Camera Operator (Current Employee) –  Manhattan, NYMay 11, 2015
I currently work for Fox News as a Camera Operator as well as a Utility operator. I currently work on Shepard Smith Reporting, Hannity, and The Kelly File. On Shepard Smith Reporting I operate Ped Camera, handheld, handheld on sticks, or utility. On both Hannity and on The Kelly File I operate Ped camera or utility for The Stedi-cam. On a daily basis I set up Hannity’s Set by myself because the other tech operators are working on Cavuto and it helps out tremendously because when Cavuto is over they come up and Sean Hannity is ready to start taping his show. After taping Hannity’s show I help Set up The Kelly File with other Tech Ops. Whenever scheduling has me on standby, I always take it upon myself to operate a camera on other shows or pretapes that are taking place during my standby time.
Pros
Great peers who are willing to train you and not worried you will take their job.
Cons
Hard to get a staff position, not enough job opportunities.

Producing at Fox News
Producer (Current Employee) –  New YorkMarch 3, 2015
Fox News is an extremely interesting place to work. It is different from other news organizations in that it has a specific message to get across. Each show has their role in the lineup clearly defined.

Each day I pitch stories and find the best guests to tell the story we need to tell.
