I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Terrific team of people that work together. In a sea of publishing companies that focus on the superficial, Meredith is a place where intelligence, hard work and collaboration are rewarded.

Cons

Since Meredith is a public company, their primary focus is on P&L and they run a tight ship. Corners are cut and benefits are lacking in comparison to other companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

In order to maintain top talent, salaries need to remain competitive and merit rewards go a long way. An extra few days off for a job well done (if there is a raise freeze) does make a difference.

    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Challenging work, good benefits and a decent corporate culture make Meredith an excellent place to work. They are focusing on digital and marketing, more then print.

    Cons

    Every year for the past 5 years they have been downsizing certain divisions in favor of purchasing new companies. Do your research and make sure your join in the right division. Avoid newsstand.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look to move existing employees into new divisions rather then just downsizing. Loyalty goes both ways.

    Very slow to progress to current technology trends. Unwilling to listen to employees who they hired to know.

    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Benefits are good. Nice environment to work in as far as nice building and location. They still have partial match on 401K.

    Cons

    Senior management needs training, not as qualified as should be in most cases. Many are hired just to manage but know very little about what they are managing. Slow to progress with technology. Budgets not in line with expectations and shows in the products.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest to progress. Invest in your people and products. Fear management is not a tool.
