I worked at Time Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Comp & benefits are good and most employees are fantastic people. Time Life building is ideal location. Editorial personnel are creative and enthusiastic for products they work for.

Cons

With declining profits comes declining opportunity. Annual cutbacks and layoffs are demoralizing. Too much short term thinking.

Advice to Management

Be more creative. Stop following the pack. Time was a very innovative business back in the day. Used to invest more in long term prospects but now seems everything is for today.

    Pros

    -Great experience working with Real Simple employees outside of San Francisco office
    -Great experience working with other well run properties within the San Francisco office (Such as Time, Fortune & InStyle)

    Cons

    The overall company was wonderful to work for but the management in the San Francisco office was the worst I have ever experienced. Unprofessional, cruel and manipulative. If it weren't for the management in the offices outside of SF and the other properties within the office, I would have gained zero relevant experience in how to be an efficient employee.
