I have been working at Time full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

We have a new CEO who seems to be building a lot of positive momentum.

Cons

Too many experienced people come in and see the gaping holes where the company should have kept up in digital/marketing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to directors (and above) who have significant, successful digital experience *outside* of Time Inc. They are the ones who are going to be able to right the ship. A decentralized (brands first) approach to digital marketing will allow us to innovate digitally. Pay close attention to the numbers-- they don't lie.

    I worked at Time full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Comp & benefits are good and most employees are fantastic people. Time Life building is ideal location. Editorial personnel are creative and enthusiastic for products they work for.

    Cons

    With declining profits comes declining opportunity. Annual cutbacks and layoffs are demoralizing. Too much short term thinking.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more creative. Stop following the pack. Time was a very innovative business back in the day. Used to invest more in long term prospects but now seems everything is for today.

    Pros

    Great titles with a lot of untapped brand equity.

    Cons

    We're attempting to play catch up with our digital businesses as the company has missed being in front of major developments in the digital landscape.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consumer Marketing leadership is far behind the times. They are completely unaware of how to grow and run a sustainable digital business, and they continue to dig the company into a hole.

    In meetings run by Consumer Marketing leadership, you get the sense that you're sitting in the middle of 1995. These are the people who are supposed to be "evolving." Changes are needed sooner rather than later.
