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

Pros

Decent benefits highlighted by the time off you get and there's the cache of working at a legendary company and building.

Cons

Lay offs are a common thing and the people who get laid are the good hard working people who still keep things going... but the rewards go to lazy, has-been sellers who have likely been thrown out of their previous positions at smarter organizations and are here for an all expenses paid vacation. In sum, the worst of the worst of a corporate culture.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

When it's time to cut the fat... time to look at the has-beens who kick their feet up and are only there to wine and dine on the company dime vs. hard workers and the people that can actually give you a chance to save the company. Media is supposed to be fun and exciting and those are two adjectives that no employee has felt in years or maybe even decades.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere and pace, accommodating schedule. Good benefits (though poorly administered). Convenient location. Working for a big media company brings fringe benefits and perks.

    Cons

    Poor compensation and few opportunities for advancement. Poor communication across departments and layers of management. Politics. Reluctance to invest or stray from the status quo.
