    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The benefits are great and the work environment and people are second to none. Good career management and personal growth roadmaps for employees that desire them.

    Cons

    Layoffs are ALWAYS on the horizon. Working there entails being able to live with the cloud over your head that you or someone you work closely with will be laid off anytime.

    Advice to Management

    Make better fiscal plans for growth so employees don't need to worry about the possibility that they will be let go at any time.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Meredith Corporation (Culver City, CA) in July 2015.

    Interview

    Meredith employs a company who does a background check on potential candidates. They reviewed my past employers, education and income. As well as any criminal records, of which there weren't any. Once they reviewed all key areas, they gave their findings to Meredith's human resources. No red flags. I was simply called to come in. I was also given a copy of their findings. It took a day or so. Typical experience these days.

    Interview Questions

    • They wanted income tax records for several years.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    No negotiation phase. Flat hourly fee.
