    Pros

    Good benefits, above average number of vacation days from onset.
    Good work culture
    Freedom to cross projects and innovate
    Diverse and talented team
    Recently, a transforming and dynamic company, in stark contrast to years past

    Cons

    Unclear promotion paths.
    Fast company transformation does necessitate layoffs and turnover.
    Many employees overly focused on company rumors rather than quality of work.
    Existing work and job scope is fast changing with the transformation, and can be overwhelming.
    The company itself has not been very healthy for the last few years, but at least now it is fighting to stay relevant in the digital age, rather than just bleeding to death.

    Advice to Management

    And as harsh as it is, keep the transformation coming. It's what Time needs to earn the right to stay in business.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a weekinterviewed at Time (New York, NY) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The Recruiter at Time Inc. was very helpful and responsive. My interviewers were very warm and personable. One of the most important factors for me when determining whether to accept a job is its cultural vibe, and this seemed like a perfect match for me.

    Time Inc. seems to value and push for a very healthy work and life balance.
