    Time has great benefits and good cache, but just be prepared to work your butt off.

    I have been working at Time

    Pros

    Time Inc. offers its employees great benefits and time off. It offers classes, plenty of events from affinity groups, and has a nice cafeteria. But the work culture very much depends on the division or title you work for. I personally have never had to work so hard and such long hours as I have at Time. A lot of smart and capable people work here, and not as much of the snobby consumer mag culture as at other media companies like Conde Nast.

    Cons

    Be prepared to hit the ground running...it's is very much baptism by fire. Also, my personal experience has been that there's so much work to do that I've never managed to use all my vacation in the five years I've worked here. You're also far removed from upper management. I don't think they are in tuned with who does the real groundwork. Also, Time Inc. really likes to tout moving around inside the company, but I personally haven't seen many people leave one division or magazine to move to another.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more knowledgeable about who does what on the front lines, and reward those folks accordingly.

    I have been working at Time full-time

    Pros

    Great brands, long history, products you can be proud of, if any publisher can make the switch to digital w/o imploding it's this one.

    Cons

    Very cost constrained environment, especially in past six months. hr outside of TL building is totally absent and policies are unpublished, too difficult to launch new products because of weak business environment and fuzzy leadership vision. Too difficult to network across departments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Build a world-class HR function. Invest in external training.
