    More training on the importance of embracing the corporate culture.

    I worked at Time Inc. full-time

    Pros

    There are some really talented, smart, and nice people who work at Time Inc. The editorial standards are high so you come out well trained in due diligence.

    Cons

    The company is crumbling and cutting left and right, doing more with less people. This creates a shark tank type atmosphere where people are cutting each other down to survive. They're also seriously behind in the digital arena which is part of the problem. And the strategy keeps changing but its not fast enough.

    Advice to Management

    Time Inc used to be the greatest place to work with the nicest people. It's time to get back to that and stop letting awful people with no management skills rise to the top.

    I worked at Time Inc. full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Still some quality journalism produced.

    Cons

    Too much focus on low-quality journalism. It is expected from the most senior reporters to the newest interns. There's no allocation strategy to get the necessary clicks online from so that veteran reporters can spend more time on quality journalism.

    Advice to Management

    From podcasts to newsletters to short stories to long stories, stick to quality.


  9. "Still trying to figure it out"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    I worked at Time Inc. full-time

    Pros

    Still some great people left

    Cons

    Like most trying to transition from print to digital, it's tough to replace print dollars with digital dimes

    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.
