    I have been working at Time Life full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    This is a great place to learn and become immersed in e-commerce and DR marketing. The leadership is fantastic, giving you room to make your own decisions and pitches for the business, while also being available for mentoring.

    Cons

    Sometimes the business feels a little top - heavy, with more directors and VPs than "little guys"... Perhaps if more work were done on site instead of outsourced, it would feel more holistic.

    Former Employee - Reporter in New York, NY

    I worked at Time Life

    Pros

    I 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.

    Cons

    Biggest 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 ManagementAdvice

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