    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Time Inc. India full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Still retains some of the DNA from the previous organization
    Has pretty good levels of work life balance
    Good office space till now (RMZ Ecoworld)

    Cons

    No new jobs. Post Meredith takeover the workforce has been reduced to less than half ( so low chances of the organization to scale up again)
    Organization has lost lot of good talent - many voluntary exits apart from the forced layoffs
    Current and future employees have low growth potential and low job security looming over their heads

    Advice to Management

    Nothing to say - as the final call for any policy or change is in hands of the people in Des Moines or New York

    Pros

    This was one of the best company for me before Meredith took over. Healthy Environment, flexible timing, learning. Free food and Cab facilities.

    Cons

    After acquisition it became hell. No job security. Less skilled stakes holders. They don't even know how to write requirements and less knowledge about products. Office politics.

    I have been working at Time Inc. India full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Time Inc. India WAS an amazing place to work at a few years ago. Work-life balance, quality of peers, learning, free food.

    Cons

    This company has been turned into a sweat shop by leadership that has considerable experience in running sweatshops.
    Additionally, ever since Time Inc. got acquired by Meredith corp, 50% of the employees are being laid off.

    Advice to Management

    There's not much you can do, you are limited by your abilities and are on your way down.
    The entire company can see how you transformed an incredibly nurturing and collaborative workplace into a metric driven sweatshop.
