    I worked at Meredith Corporation

    Pros

    Flexibile work-life balance, no problems getting time off, innovation in digital. The vast amount of media properties and data on each made it an interesting place to be in the marketplace.

    Cons

    Elitist attitudes, lazy people who rely on their assistants to do everything from printing emails for them, to organizing inboxes and checking voice mail. Many promises were made regarding advancement, but at the end of the day it was all lip service. Internal communications were lackluster. Well-compensated employees had a habit of using expense accounts for their own personal gain by using them to purchase Ugg Boots, sports tickets, holiday decorations, client gifts from a spouses business, etc. In general, I felt like I worked in a mildly corrupt, catty environment with almost no chance for advancement, all of which was contrary to what I was told during the interview process. Over-promise, under-deliver.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to pay attention to less-experienced employees and put into place tools and processes to ensure that they are on a path for advancement. This will help to retain younger talent at levels within the company that currently see high turnover.
