    I worked at Time Warner as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great location at 59th and Columbus (can't beat looking out into central park on sunny days)
    Leading media company = awesome name on a resume
    Lots of fun activities going on every week
    Free premieres to new Warner Bros movies and tv shows
    Young workforce for the most part, and really chill fun work environment to be in

    Cons

    Hours can get kinda long depending on department you're in
    Over-priced cafeteria
    For a 21st century media company....the building sure hasn't kept pace.....way to corporate looking!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As an intern I had a wonderful experience in my department so there isn't much I can say really.

    For those of you looking to join this company though...keep in mind the offices are shifting to Hudson Yards in 2018...and as per managements word...there will be a lot more "shared working spaces" (aka downsizing) so just something to consider.

    I have been working at Time Warner full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    People at Time Inc are great. Everyone is smart, knowledgeable about the industry and works very hard. The company is ahead of the game within the digital stratosphere. Great at diversifying the company.

    Cons

    They don't make it particularly easy to move between titles. They would bring an outsider in before shifting internally. Trying to get a promotion is like pulling teeth!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow employees to make internal shifts at least after a year. It will keep things fresh and keep bodies inside the building.

    I worked at Time Warner full-time

    Pros

    Liked the 40 hr job. Liked the benefits and the hours

    Cons

    Fired by HR after supervisor claimed I cheated on a test. I scored 95% and the people around me failed or scored less. She contacted HR and I was asked to leave the building. No support was given to me before/after the termination. I must now apply for food stamps until I start a new job and cannot get them without a termination letter from T-W and can't even get that. HELP PLEASE AS I HAVE A 5 YR OLD SON TO SUPPORT.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure HR has better training and make sure that trainers are qualified.

    Pros

    Great perkrs in such a nice building on 58 and 8th avenue. Easy walk to train even in bad weather, Job allows you to grow if you are willing to work hard.

    Cons

    Not interested in cross training, Upper management tries to intimidate workers and constantly reminds you of how lucky you are to have a job there. Company outsources tons of work so soon the help desk will be gone and only desktop support will be there.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Support your staff more, consider cross training so you can build the talent you have.
