    I have been working at Time full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great co-workers, opportunities for advancement, constant learning opportunities, work/life balance, benefits

    Cons

    Job security, low morale, struggling through an enormous culture change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    While employee/er loyalty and morale is no longer an asset in this new economy, we are all still human beings and this will impact corporations at some point.

    Recruiter Interview

    Application Details

    I applied online – interviewed at Time.

    Interview Details

    I applied online (via the Time Inc. website) and a couple weeks later received an email to set up a phone call with the HR Manager. We spoke a few days later and the call lasted about 15 minutes. The HR Manager seemed lovely and told me that the role/company sounded like a great next step for me as well as told me that she wanted me to come in and meet with her and other members of the team. We closed the conversation with me giving her my availability and her telling me that she would e-mail me shortly with the rest of the team's availability for an in-person meeting. I never heard from her again despite multiple follow up attempts. As a Recruiter, I am appalled at the lack of professionalism and disappointed that a such an established company that I had admired for so long treats their candidates this way. If the HR Manager had not planned on interviewing me in person in the first place she should not have told me she wanted to and if she had changed her mind afterward then she should have responded to my emails and let me know. I see other candidates have received a generic email stating that the position had been filled or they were no longer being considered, and I would have even appreciated that.
