Pros

Benefits package to employees. Believes in investing in brands by holding events, seminars etc. Wellness and tuition reimbursement. There is a believe in work/life balance.

Cons

Top-heavy. Be prepared to have much meddling in the making of your magazine from the executive suite in New York. Too many layers at the top directed by people who aren't familiar with the brand nor magazine making since the 1980s. A little less modern. More stuffy than many media companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In today's times, it would be nice to have a method for creatives to submit ideas for new business models etc. If magazines are going to share resources, there needs to be systems in place. Please look at the executive level and the multiple layers to get the job done. It makes the work tedius, uncreative, homogenous and demotivating.

    Pros

    Time Inc. give lots of vacation time and is full of interesting people to help broaden your horizons. This is a media giant so if you want to work in the publishing industry, it's great to have some of their bigger brands on your resume. Large amount of discounts at the ready. Free magazines.

    Cons

    Even though you get loads of vacation time, it's hard to take it because of all the work that you are likely to be responsible for. You really have to speak up for yourself and protect your life, because Time Inc. will take whatever amount of your life you are wiling to give. And if you are the quiet type, forget about it...your work - no matter how good, won't speak for itself - this is true many places anyway. But if you are not gregarious, you will likely be a bit of a pariah at Time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Somehow find a way to strike a balance between the endless quest to deliver shareholder growth every year and the amount of squeezing you do on the employees who are left after all the layoffs.

    I worked at Time Warner

    Pros

    The benefits are only decent. Keep in mind this is a large company so although the benefits are good, you are a small fish.

    Cons

    Management is not scrutinized as well as it should be. Mailings are sent out every now and then about how great the company is doing, but whenever it's time for raises you will never see a dime.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The money is very top heavy. There is no desire to instill loyalty with their employees. As a result everyone is always looking or a better job.
