Great Place for Self Starters

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at TV Guide full-time

ProsLots of freedom to take risks and learn. A 60 year old brand with a startup mentality. Especially on the digital side, very smart VP team that works hard to grow the brand and create new opportunities. They have a history of promoting within.

ConsNegative association with the brand. Network and digital have difficulties separating their identities with the magazine, which is assumed to be an outdated, older demographic.

Advice to Senior ManagementNetwork needs to invest in the brand to retain, grow and win new clients.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Good place to work..

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
New York, NY

I have been working at TV Guide

ProsThe atmosphere is pretty laid back. Some departments have tremendous room for growth, but others do not. Good salary, benefits, 2 weeks paid vacation.

ConsI wish I was challenged more. The pace is also a bit too slow for my liking. Other than that, it's a good place to work.

Advice to Senior ManagementIncrease responsibilities over time, especially when people prove to be excelling at the tasks they are already doing. That's it.

ProsLaid back, great people working with you. It's

ConsQuite a few layoffs happening regularly and they like to hire lower level workers for a lot less than competing networks.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe company as a whole needs to rebrand itself. If things keep going the way they are, the network has less than 5 years before shutting down.
