Good place to work overall but not very creative.

I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Good stable work environment. Great Benefits. Good Work/Life Balance.

Cons

Depending on what department you work in, it can be a great place to work. For creative folks out there, the work itself isn't very creative or satisfying if you're a creative professional. There are too many chiefs and not a lot of people to do the actual work. Salary is below industry average.

    A place where mediocracy reigns!

    • Work/Life Balance

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Des Moines, IA

    I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Pay scale is competitive
    Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Life-timers run the place.
    A low promotion ceiling for art and edit staff.
    Bottom-line is the only measure of success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move on from the mindless/spineless 50's era management style.
    Do something because it's the right thing to do rather then what you have been told to do.
    Stop letting the CEO control your life. We know you really don't want to fire your friends!

    Forward thinking, but little future exists

    I worked at Meredith Corporation as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    Very technologically focused and forward thinking as a whole. Many people are friendly, and the work-life balance is superb. The benefits are great and there are many free perks from a workout facility to free coffee and sodas.

    Cons

    The job security isn't great and the outlook appears to be bleak. Aside from the digital aspect, the magazine industry isn't doing well. Likewise, many people are constantly changing positions and jobs in an effort to have more security, so it becomes difficult to get comfortable in your position.
