Bad Pay, Good People

Reporter (Former Employee)
New York, NY

I worked at Time Life

ProsI worked at one of the magazines. People there were great. Work was ok. Salary was awful. Overtime was the only way to make a decent living. Plenty of opportunities to write if you're proactive though. A good foot-in-the-door place to work.

ConsBiggest negative is the money. And it can be very difficult to move up. But publishing in general is pretty difficult these days so I don't really fault the company.

Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more from within. Especially among the low-level employees. Keep communication open more, again, especially with the lower level staff.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
