Summer intern (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – June 11, 2012
I was the intern in the Production Services Department at Fox. I helped out with everything!! I did lots of administrative stuff, but also got to go on the back lot and the sets with the VP of Production services and the Stage Managers.
My coworkers were amazing people, in fact lots of them are my good friends now.
Great employees. Management very poor. No advancement.
Fox Media Services (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – October 9, 2015
There are a lot of really dedicated and talented employees in my area. There is a no overtime policy, which in itself is understandable in today's marketplace. However, management takes advantage of this by giving workers considerably more work than could ever be completed without overtime. As a result, employees clock out at what should be the end of their shift, then work several more hours to complete tasks on their own time. No one says anything, because, as you are reminded often, there is a line of people waiting to take our job if you don't complete the work. There is no upward mobility. Management hires outside the company for their openings, and often train new hires in a job they have never done instead of promoting an current employee who has already been doing the job.
The lot is a nice place to work. There are many choices for food so you don't need to go off-lot for lunch. You meet a lot of nice people and work on top notch films.

Confident and forward thinking team not afraid to take chances. Leadership understands the market and has invested heavily in the company's infrastructure to help employees get through their day-to-day.

Fun Studio, Good work/life balance, Confident management and team
Lacks career advancement opportunity, lower salary
Executive Assistant (Current Employee) – Century City – July 7, 2015
Do not compensate well, you need to work long hours not only to carry the workload for other employees that are careless/lazy/unqualified, but also you need the overtime because you get paid so little. They way they go about things makes no sense, they work their employees to the bone. Positive is that they are always open to new and fresh ideas regardless of your position.
Trademark Specialist (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – August 5, 2014
I worked here as a trademark specialist (international trademarks) as I had the bar in Canada, but was studying for the California Bar, which i passed first try. Fox was a great learning place for heavy duty trademark intensive practice. Nice people, great benefits. As they had no budget for additional legal counsel at the time, I left the company and started my own practice.
Category Manager (Current Employee) – Minnesota – April 29, 2014
The work is fun and very analytically oriented, with strong system and process support. Laidback managerial culture, not too competitive at employee level, and good work/life balance....but the flipside is that it seems only those who can talk prevail, hard work is valued but not held up as a virtue, and while there is job security, there isn't quick advancement.
Manager (Current Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – February 4, 2014
Good company to work for stable and offers many opportunities towards advancement. The sad part is upper management will and can stop your grown with the company to advance to another department/job. Also management is not fair with their staff that's been faithful and loyal to promote within. Lots of favoritism and unnecessary micro managing. Many people have resigned their position to work elsewhere.
stability, benefits, advancement opportunities
too much politics, not for their staff, micro-managing
Customer service, data entry, answering phones (Former Employee) – Los Angeles, CA – April 9, 2013
A typical day at work is interesting. I have learned a great deal fom this job, mostly how the real world works. Manangement is firm but fair, any request is taken into consideration. My co-workers were all fun, responsible young adults. The hardest part of the job was went it was slow and we had to wait for work to come in. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with all those interesting people.
