Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

Great vacation policy, Summer Fridays, wonderful work-life balance

Cons

People are leaving this sinking ship on a weekly basis; there is no one left who knows what they're doing or cares what they're doing. Too much micromanagement. No corporate communication about the spin-off or what effect this will have on employees. Morale is in the basement.

Advice to Management

Start investing in people and trying to keep the good ones here. More accountability. More communication.

    Pros

    Great people, leading brands, good work/life balance, excellent benefits and vacation time, a leader in the industry

    Set a clear path of where to focus and make sure the role of the legacy print business remains clear as the growth of digital progresses.
