Pay is low for writers and editors at Time Inc's women-targeted media; inflexible policies regarding vacation time; requirement to work holidays such as Christmas, Thanksgiving, etc. without additional pay; frequent layoffs, few promotions

There a number of amazing women in middle management, but top leadership is overwhelmingly white and male.

Individual managers are generally quite accommodating about letting employees with children work from home, work flexible hours

    Work from home time depends on your boss and really only applies if you have kids.

    Maybe. Time Inc is so large that it depends largely on the team you are working for. While some brands are women focused (real simple, health, instyle.), the news sites are all still run by men and women (in my opinion) are not treated as fairly.

    While flexibility may be promoted in writing, it is not always executed in real practice.
