Get A Glimpse Of Working In Tech At Time Inc.!

The technology field has a big challenge ahead, and it’s not about AI or big data. There’s a diversity challenge, especially surrounding gender diversity.


Case in point, as of 2015, women only held 25% of all computing occupations! That’s an eye-opening statistic, especially in light of the fact that research has shown that companies that possess gender balance tend to perform better, gaining advantage over their competitors.

One company actively pursuing gender balance is Time Inc., one of the world’s most influential media companies and publisher of well-known titles such as People Magazine, Sports Illustrated and InStyle, to name a few. We recently recorded a webinar with Rob Duffy, VP of Engineering for Content Distribution, Platforms and Video at Time Inc., as well as four members of his team: Nancy Prestridge, Software Developer, Constance Chen, Front End Developer, Upasana Kozayachayan, Web Developer, and Claire Young, iOS Development Engineer. All four of these outstanding women were placed in their roles by the team here at PowerToFly.

During the webinar, our panel of female tech leaders at Time Inc. took us through some of the best qualities Time Inc. has to offer, each more impressive than the last. For example, check out what Constance had to say about her experience at Time Inc.

“The quality of life at Time Inc. is better than any other place I’ve ever worked at. Time Inc. is one of the rare places where you get to feel really proud and take ownership of your work.”

Time Inc.’s outstanding benefits were also on display, from back-up daycare to a mature mentorship program, where team participation is 100%. Upasana, whose mentor is Constance, raved, “There’s a great mentorship program in place and peer reviewed code helps me to stay focused and constantly improving on my technical skill.”

The panelists also offered advice for women looking to get their foot in the door. Claire noted, “It’s important to constantly keep on learning and increase your technical knowledge. If you’re unhappy where you are now, seek out opportunities where your voice will be heard.” (For more great advice from Claire, read on here.)

Rob Duffy has worked hard to ensure his team member’s voices are recognized, as he actively cultivates an environment where every employee says, ‘This is the best job I’ve ever had!’ That’s a tall order, but from the remarks given by our four female panelists, it looks like he is succeeding.

How These Companies Are Celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month

According to a recent study, anti-Asian hate crimes have risen 150% since the pandemic started. But these acts of violence are not new — they are part of a much larger history of anti-Asian racism and violence in the U.S.

That makes celebrating Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month (which was named a month-long celebration in May by Congress in 1992 "to coincide with two important milestones in Asian/Pacific American history: the arrival in the United States of the first Japanese immigrants on May 7, 1843 and contributions of Chinese workers to the building of the transcontinental railroad, completed May 10, 1869") this year all the more important.

5 Tips for Career Switchers: Insight from Work & Co’s Sarah Mogin on Making Use of Your Past Lives

Sarah Mogin never used to like writing open-ended essays in school. She found herself much more motivated by tangible problems.

Calculus had some of those—she never had trouble with her math homework—but when she was in school she never envisioned just how much she could incorporate that love of solution-finding into her daily work, much less that she would have a career as a developer one day.

Supporting Neurodiversity in the Workplace

Only 4% of companies that say they value diversity consider disabilities. Even fewer include learning and thinking differences.

While neurodiversity is a concept that is gaining more awareness, many employers have still not fully grasped the importance (and benefits) of understanding neurodiversity and how to effectively incorporate and retain neurodivergent individuals in their organizations.
