I have been working at Time Inc. full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Good work life balance, benefits (which is changing with the spin-off), nice people

Cons

Very old-fashioned way of thinking - not forward thinking. People are set in their ways and stuck in the publishing business model, takes forever to move up the ladder with the many levels (assist manager, associate manager, manager, senior manager, assoc director, director, etc...)

Advice to Management

Preach what you say - instead of just saying you are ready for change, actually do it!

    I have been working at Time Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and work-life balance. Experience depends largely on your boss and how innovative they are

    Cons

    Declining industry and no vision or energy or around energizing it or exploring new areas. Focused on trying to fix print advertising model instead of looking into new areas

    Advice to Management

    Be more cutting edge. Spend more time listening to the youngest people in your organization who have a much better sense of the reality of media today. Too much money invested in print. Invest at least 10-20% into radically new ideas and 30-40% in media outside of print.


  2. "Great company to learn all you need to know about the publishing industry"
