    Pros

    People at Time Inc are great. Everyone is smart, knowledgeable about the industry and works very hard. The company is ahead of the game within the digital stratosphere. Great at diversifying the company.

    Cons

    They don't make it particularly easy to move between titles. They would bring an outsider in before shifting internally. Trying to get a promotion is like pulling teeth!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to make internal shifts at least after a year. It will keep things fresh and keep bodies inside the building.

    I worked at Time Warner full-time

    Pros

    Liked the 40 hr job. Liked the benefits and the hours

    Cons

    Fired by HR after supervisor claimed I cheated on a test. I scored 95% and the people around me failed or scored less. She contacted HR and I was asked to leave the building. No support was given to me before/after the termination. I must now apply for food stamps until I start a new job and cannot get them without a termination letter from T-W and can't even get that. HELP PLEASE AS I HAVE A 5 YR OLD SON TO SUPPORT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure HR has better training and make sure that trainers are qualified.

    Pros

    Great perkrs in such a nice building on 58 and 8th avenue. Easy walk to train even in bad weather, Job allows you to grow if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Not interested in cross training, Upper management tries to intimidate workers and constantly reminds you of how lucky you are to have a job there. Company outsources tons of work so soon the help desk will be gone and only desktop support will be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff more, consider cross training so you can build the talent you have.

    I worked at Time Warner

    Pros

    Great bonuses, and free services.

    Cons

    There is such high pressure to sell that many of the reps started to develop less than ethical practices. Some of these practices were encouraged by supervision. Also not enough emphasis on customer satisfaction leads to all host of issues to tech appoints, to customer's accounts being messed up. To me this company is the epitome of what is wrong with the corporate culture today. Greed and short term quarterly gains in stead of long term success and a decent company ethos.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Nothing problems with this company are mostly due to laws that put stockholder profits first. All issues are systemic.

    Pros

    Diversity. Time Warner is very inclusive and does an excellent job hiring and developing minority talent. The benefits are great, pay is solid. Executive Management is very grounded and that sensibility trickles down throughout lower management and the rest of the company.

    Cons

    Career growth is stagnant. There is a lot of talk about talent development and promoting from within, yet internal candidates often lose out to externals.

    People who work here are lifers, which limits growth opportunities. The lifer mentality also restricts innovation.
