Current Employee - Manager in New York, NY

I have been working at Time full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Good work life balance, benefits (which is changing with the spin-off), nice people

Cons

Very old-fashioned way of thinking - not forward thinking. People are set in their ways and stuck in the publishing business model, takes forever to move up the ladder with the many levels (assist manager, associate manager, manager, senior manager, assoc director, director, etc...)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Preach what you say - instead of just saying you are ready for change, actually do it!

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

    Pros

    Great benefits and work-life balance. Experience depends largely on your boss and how innovative they are

    Cons

    Declining industry and no vision or energy or around energizing it or exploring new areas. Focused on trying to fix print advertising model instead of looking into new areas

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more cutting edge. Spend more time listening to the youngest people in your organization who have a much better sense of the reality of media today. Too much money invested in print. Invest at least 10-20% into radically new ideas and 30-40% in media outside of print.

    I worked at Time full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Many opportunities to learn through Time Inc University and other initiatives, many opportunities to gain experience in multiple divisions. Nice, ambitious colleagues.

    Cons

    Work-life balance was tough for some pregnant women in our team; communication between mid-level and upper management insufficient.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Money spending at upper management level was sometimes out of control according to some mid-level managers.
