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

Pros

Fairly good pay. Good work/life balance. Generally, the people have good values. Strong brand equity that is underleveraged due to attachment with and myopic view of print magazines.

Cons

Hard to buy into digital strategies that aren't being communicated like they are with other (growing) digital companies.

Advice to Management

All of audience development needs to be reporting in to consumer marketing, especially given how much consumer marketing is doing to evolve the business model. There is a lot of immoral, unethical decision-making at the director level. Keep only the people who truly support the ad sales AND consumer marketing businesses.

    I worked at Time Inc. full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The salary, benefits, and perks of being in the TimeWarner family (for now) are the highlights of working here. Also the cafeteria is cheaper than what you can find in midtown.

    Cons

    They completely are entrenched in the old ways of thinking and doing things, and have completely let the digital revolution pass them by. With the exception of People which can do whatever it wants, there is a complete lack of innovation across the business.

    Advice to Management

    Start soliciting ideas from outside the echo chamber.
