I have been working at Time Out Group full-time (Less than a year)
Time Out is at an interesting point right now. It is working to rebuild itself into a digital-first company from its successful roots as a magazine company.
This transformation hasn't been easy. As with other print publishers, Time Out is dealing with declining print revenues. If you read through prior reviews, you can see that there's been a succession of attempts to transform the company: new teams come in, reorganize the company, and then leave.
And now there is a new set of folks at the helm, and to be transparent, I'm part of this incoming group.
The obvious question is: what makes this time different?
I believe that the key is that the incoming team helped to build successful web companies. They have experience with how to build product and how to engineer system that can make money on the internet. If you look back over much of the prior attempts, you'll find that Time Out was the biggest [web] company in their work history.
The majority of the new team hail from successful web companies. Most have helped make those companies successful. And, like me, many are from TripAdvisor. I'm excited to see us go "all in" on becoming a digital company.
Change is hard. Changing from print to digital is harder.
The process took 3+ weeks. I interviewed at Time Out Group (New York, NY).
Phone screening with a recruiter, 1:1 interview with the hiring manager and a colleague, final interview with the Senior VP. The total process took about 3 weeks until they called me with an offer.
