    Great content, good people, but slow in making changes and keeping up to date

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsWork is interesting because of our focus--food, wine, travel and leisure, and luxury lifestyles. As we move away from American Express and are integrated into Time Inc, it'll be interesting to see how/if the culture changes. A series of layoffs and an explicit managerial shift away from editorial and towards sales has weakened morale (in editorial!), but if answering to the money people will actually make us more money that may sweeten the bitter pill.

    ConsIn 'streamlining' to get ready for a spinoff from TimeWarner, we have become understaffed. An increasingly desperate devotion to print has repressed action (money, planning, staffing) on the digital side.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep salaries competitive, and always, clear and honest communication.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    ProsGreat resume builder, a lot of young professionals, relaxed office environment.

    ProsFood & Wine Magazine... need I say more?
    Working in mid-town is not a bad commute for most

    ConsTime Inc's takeover has left a lot of open ended questions about company organization and has left many thinking that their jobs are not secure
