I have been working at Time Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

Pros

Great work life balance. Compensation is competitive with the industry. Management is very understanding and flexible.

Cons

The industry itself is in decline and there has not been enough innovation to stay relevant. There must be a more focused vision that should be communicated across the organization.

Advice to Management

Define a realistic vision and communicate it clearly to all employees

    I have been working at Time Inc. full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are amazing. They give so many days off that you feel like you're barely working.

    Cons

    Uninspiring and impossible to advance in your career

    Advice to Management

    Managers need to be reviewed for their management styles. People are constantly looking to leave because of poor management.

    I worked at Time Inc. as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    - Great summer project for interns that allows them to present ideas to some of the senior managers (although I don't think anything has ever really come of the ideas for prior years' classes).
    - Huge emphasis on work life balance. Not many people in the building past 5pm. Summer Fridays.

    Cons

    - Culture of company is quite slow, even in a tough environment for media companies. There doesn't seem to be much of a bias for action; instead there's a lot of box checking.
    - Company is very large and bureaucratic.

    Advice to Management

    Flatten the organization so entrepreneurial ideas are better heard.
