Pros

4 weeks vacation, summer fridays

Cons

Rampant nepotism, leaders being chosen on their golf buddy connections rather than skill or leadership ability.

Advice to Management

Pick real digital leaders if that's the direction you want to go, not your buddy from another print title.

    I have been working at Time full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Time provides good medical and dental benefits. They have Summer hours and give employees 4 weeks vacation a year.

    Cons

    The company is so big that there is little to no innovation. Also, Time is behind the 8 ball with digital and they keep titles that are revenue drains like Coastal Living for example. Management consists of numbers reporting and paperwork (lots and lots of paperwork i.e., time spent doing reports is more than time spent selling). Sales Reps represent multiple titles yet each publisher expects their title to receive the most of your time and sale required per title. Most of the good sales people have left or have been let go. Also, watching what a former employee went through with HR was frightening. HR and Upper Management are very political and useless unless you are a minority.

    Advice to Management

    Manage and support your staff and not manage "up" the chain.

    Pros

    Good benefits, free ice-cream during summer months, easy to transition into other positions

    Cons

    It's a large company which means there are a lot of policies and paperwork.
