    Pros

    I worked in the Hispanic Media department. The team is small and feels like family. For a person that wants to learn, this is a great area to shine on your position and get your hands on other stuff that is of your interest too. People are super friendly, supervisors are very accesible, can be flexible, and love to share your achievements with upper management and the rest of the team.

    Cons

    Sometimes work can get a quite hectic, specially when someone is out... hours can be long sometimes. Corporate benefits are not great, but other perks make up for it. Growth might be difficult sometimes because of the amount of layers it takes for approval.

    Advice to Management

    My personal experience with management has been great. I know they make the best out of what they are being given.

  3. Very positive, creative environment. Great colleagues.

    Pros

    -Quality of life. I work late during peak RFP times, but other than that I can leave at 5-5:30pm each night.
    -Pleasant work environment

    Cons

    -Salary/raises are limited to the upper echelons.
    -Print and digital aren't integrated
    -Departments keep getting downsized...

    Advice to Management

    Acquiring new companies is great for the company overall, but what about the existing employees? We often find out about these after the trades write about it. I know a lot of employees are frustrated with this as we've gotten abysmal raises over the years.

    Pros

    I worked at Meredith for several years and enjoyed the atmosphere, management, and opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    The investment in editorial product is as minimal as possible, tough to reach into management ranks, bit of an old boys club.
