A place where mediocracy reigns!

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

ProsPay scale is competitive
Good work/life balance

ConsLife-timers run the place.
A low promotion ceiling for art and edit staff.

Advice to Senior ManagementMove 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!
