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

Pros

Fairly good pay. Good work/life balance. Generally, the people have good values. Strong brand equity that is underleveraged due to attachment with and myopic view of print magazines.

Cons

Hard to buy into digital strategies that aren't being communicated like they are with other (growing) digital companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

All of audience development needs to be reporting in to consumer marketing, especially given how much consumer marketing is doing to evolve the business model. There is a lot of immoral, unethical decision-making at the director level. Keep only the people who truly support the ad sales AND consumer marketing businesses.

    I worked at Time full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Iconic brands, lots of good people working there. I enjoyed working there until a bunch of us fell victim to the first round of layoffs this year.

    Cons

    I saw the company change it's approach and strategy and it looked like people were just groping around. It changed leadership several times in four or five years. It's still lagging behind, and eliminating people who have deep knowledge and passion of the company was baffling and most would say it's a poor management move to improve the books before the spinoff. Will miss working there, but I'm not looking back.

    The other common complaint is the lack of transparency. The really senior management was never known to share what's happening in the company even to relatively senior management at the director levels as well. We find out about layoffs every year through outside sources, like the Post, which is just funny.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend time in the trenches instead of just talking about how things will change from a podium. For middle managers, get your people more involved, as apathy and insecurity can run rampant if people feel left out.
