    Pros

    Interesting work and l great colleagues, people look out for each other most of the time. Management seem willing to be honest about sale of time inc UK to Eperis.

    Cons

    Office location is miserable and annoying for majority of people to get too, pay is too low across the whole company, people get taken advantage of at certain publications and are not appreciated.

    Pros

    Time Inc. had both great health and vacation benefits. They also paid decent Salaries. Lastly, I enjoyed working with Intelligent co-workers.

    Cons

    It was difficult to work at this company in a poor economy as advertising and the purchasing of such items as magazines greatly decreased. There were massive lay-offs and poor morale. Upper management did not share information about the changes at work in a transparent way and things were often secretive.

    Pros

    Decent salary for an assistant role in media.(Considering media buying/planning agencies pay their assistants $35K or less a year). Generally good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Time Inc. is stuck in it's old ways and has not proven agile enough to compete effectively in the digital/programmatic space. The future of traditional media companies do not look bright, and that is a discouraging environment to work in. Constant downsizing and speculation of layoffs does not attract the talent this company needs to bring it out of the past.

    Time Inc. - A nice place to work

    Pros

    The Time Inc. building is located in a great downtown area of Manhattan. The people who work there are all great people. Upper management is great people too even if they're not great managers.

    Cons

    Working at Time Inc. is sort of like being on a slowly sinking ship. You can see the water rising gradually, but there's still enough time to reach a life boat or believe someone may arrive in time to save everyone. Time Inc. as whole was resistant to the dawn of the internet age and that early reluctance or stubbornness to change with the times has crippled the growth of this once proud magazine and news giant. Time Inc. has been playing catchup ever since. If you're young and innovative, they sorely need you. I just can't promise it will ultimately mean anything.

    Good opportunity but editors aren't that helpful and no progression guaranteed

    Pros

    Was part of a digital internship program that is a great opportunity to work with several brands within time inc Got great access to editors, brands etc Learned a lot Got bylines Digital training in SEO, twitter best practice etc included for all employees Intern meet ups and free meals

    Cons

    The digital intern program is organised by another department in time inc and editors don't really know what's going on meaning they have little incentive to give you feedback/help etc At the women's magazine I was at the editor was very keen on reminding us we were interns There's also no room for progression - the company scrapped a year long program a while ago and replaced it with this rotating 6 month internship so once your 6 months are up there's no gurantee of anything unless your editor likes you and this wasnt made clear when applying Money isn't great but its better than normal intern wages
