    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    I worked with some of my favorite people in the business and looked forward to going work everyday. It was really all about the people.

    Cons

    After multiple rounds of shocking layoffs, the morale is low. It also remains a bit stagnant since print isn't integrating fast enough with digital. There is limited growth and learning potential since most middle management positions have been removed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find new ways to motivate staff and promote growth and learning to keep top talent.

    Application Details

    I applied online. The process took 2 weeks - interviewed at Meredith Corporation in July 2014.

    Interview Details

    Applied through ed2010.com. Received an email the next day from the fashion assistant to come in for an interview. Interviewed the following week, but never heard back. I thought the interview went well, so I assume they went with someone with more experience (I don't have any fashion experience).
