I worked at Time Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Excellent editorial products, unimpeachable editorial integrity, established and leading brands. They have gone through round after round of layoffs, and those remaining are bravely and ably weathering what has been more than a decade of industry disruption.

Cons

As a long-time leader, Time Inc.'s leadership is risk-averse, so fearful of making mistake that they miss opportunities. Investment capital is scarce. The company is also hierarchical to a fault, still, with too many chiefs and too few Indians, and too often it's the politically savvy who get promoted. If your performance is top-notch but you're not friends with your boss, you're going nowhere.

Advice to Management

Get to know the worker bees better. Manage more by walking around.

    I have been working at Time Inc. as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    Love the company's creative culture and the content its workers produce is top notch. Offers a great work/life balance. Company offers many events like movie screenings, book signings, ice cream socials, etc. to its employees.

    Cons

    Company takes advantage of full-time freelance employees so it doesn't have to provide benefits. Because of this, many talented people leave for greener pastures. If temp proves him or herself after a year, he/she should be hired FT.

    Advice to Management

    Boost employee morale and hire more permanent, less temporary, employees.
