Great maternity and paternity leave. Not very flexible on work arrangements. Pay is just below the market.

    There seems to be a lot of flexibility the higher you get, but for mid-level it may exist, but it's very much frowned upon within the culture. As in, management will continuously voice how they don't like work from home arrangements, etc.

Be very vocal about the things you need or want. There has been a pay freeze for the past couple of years but it's not uncommon for them to make exceptions if a good case is brought forward.

    Managers and Directors have a lot of power when it comes to determining an employees schedule. My department is known for being very flexible but it is the exception.

    Work from home time depends on your boss and really only applies if you have kids.
  • Recommend to Women?

    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.

This employer is flexible, challenging and forward thinking. But we get in our on way sometimes and make it hard to do business internally and externally.
