    I have been working at Time Inc. full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good compensation and benefits; opportunities for growth

    Cons

    Company has been cutting jobs and reorganizing for several years now so there is now a sense of instability. Stock price is low and management seems unclear as to new direction.

    Advice to Management

    Go back to core businesses; don't be seduced by ancillary revenue streams that are not related to Time Inc.'s core brand promise.
