Fox Sports 1 Sucks Customer Reviews and Feedback
Fox Sports 1 (FS1) is an American pay television channel that is owned by the Fox Sports Media Group, a unit of Fox Corporation. FS1 replaced the motorsports network Speed on August 17, 2013, at the same time that its companion channel Fox Sports 2 replaced Fuel TV.

A former employee said in a review: "Fox Sports 1 does not promote anyone. Managment over looks good candidates. No cross training program. Get your money going in because you'll never get a pay raise for your hard work.

Sales Assistant (Former Employee) says"Horrible place to work at. They pile work on you and expect you to do it in a matter of seconds. Everything is always urgent. The office space is poorly maintained. Managers and AE reps are rude and entitled. They dangle a carrot over you mentioning promotions but never follow suit. Cannot survive on yearly pay that isn’t salary it’s per hour! Cons: Everything, full waste of my time, went to serve depression working there"

Linux System Engineer, Digital Newsroom Support (Former Employee) says"Fox News, like any media organization changes rapidly. They also do not care much that you put all your time into your work, they can still lay off any time they feel like. To them time and work does not matter. They underpay Cons: Low salaries, horrible work hours."
Producer (Former Employee) says"I worked at fox news edge for 10 years. the management was horrible, vindictive and highly under trained for the positions they served. not newspeople, not a great place for a news career. avoid! Cons: terrible management"

Formats Administrator / Supervisor (Former Employee) says"Fox treats its employees like expendable parts easily replaced and create a climate where you work in fear for any mistake or any expression of yourself or creativity will get you fired. You literally walk the halls worried who might see you being yourself. Cons: Climate, Executives, Human Resources"

College basketball writer (Former Employee) says"As a freelance writer, I had certain specific assignments. The job arose after working for Scout.com. It was not a critical job. It paid well, in comparison to others, There was little supervision."
Executive Producer (Former Employee) says"12 hour work days. Worked with talented, dedicated people."
Producer (Current Employee) says"If you're a fan of micro-management, untrustworthy colleagues and unethical behavior, this is the place for you! Feel like doing anything besides taking direct orders and having an opinion about what you do every single workday in a field that you have worked in for over a decade? Good luck with that. Check the boxes and don't ask questions. That's the Fox way! Seriously though, there are some serious questions about meritocracy and managerial decisions here. Also, Fox News doesn't care about developing talent, they just poach talent and the rest is a sweatshop. If you have worked in media more than two or three years, be very choosy and careful about getting a job here."
Robotic Camera Operator (Former Employee) says"Among the worst places in the tv industry. Micro management was absolutely brutal. Some of the most insecure people you will ever have the misfortune to be around. ADIOS!"
Account Executive/Outside Sales (Former Employee) says"If you require no work/life balance this job would work for you. As an account executive, you work stressful full days and are required to work evenings and weekends 52 weeks a year. You must not only attend and host games in Miami frequently, but you are required to travel to Tampa and Orlando weekly to host games. This is usually after putting in a full day of sales meetings, training and sales calls. Also, the environment is very political. Management favors male salespeople."
Account Executive/Outside Sales (Former Employee) says"Management team extremely weak- on both the LSM and GSM levels. LSM motivates by fear and is a total bully - especially to female account executives. GSM is not any better. Worst sales culture I’ve ever been a part of."
rwg2137 says"The color announcer of the Chicago/Seattle game adds absolutely no value, as he usually just repeats what has just been shown and what the play by play guy said. I like listening to him, when he is a guest on The Herd, but the redundancy for 3 hours is too much to listen to."
