      Pros

      Time Inc. was a terrific company to work for before the Meredith Corp. takeover. It's a shame what happened to the company and all of its magazine titles after the takeover.

      Cons

      It allowed the takeover to happen; it would have been better if Time Inc. had remained an independent, standalone magazine company.

      It was a great American publisher

      Pros

      None that I can think of now, unfortunately!

      Cons

      Destroyed by foolish business executives starting in the late 1990’s and the early ’00’s. The AOL merger was the beginning of the end — Time, Inc.’s stock price dropped by 10x and never really recovered. Hence it’s sale piecemeal in recent years to once-lesser companies.
