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

Pros

+ as an intern at meredith, you feel like you are a part of the team. You are given special projects and sometimes will get bylines or reviews on the website or in the actual magazine
+ they like to hire people who have interned for the corporation
+ the people are really kind and considerate, and it's an all around positive work environment
+ they are generally conscious of your needs and wants as an intern, and will send you to events, photo shoots, pr sit ins, and the lot. You also get to attend weekly meetings with the whole staff and you also get an opportunity to watch the editor in chief critique certain stories for the magazine
+ the beauty sales! Every month, like clockwork, they would have a beauty sale where one of the mags would empty their beauty closet and sell each item for a dollar. Not why I interned, but certainly a great thing if you like makeup!
+ the intern program is great, and you get to watch intern speeches and go to little events put on by hr. in retrospect, i would go back to this company because it was just that great.
+ great, nurturing environment, with a lot of respect for your personal time and efforts!

Cons

+ unpaid
+ a little gossipy
+ who you know is definitely a thing, but what corporate job isn't like that?
+ no real career openings or opportunities
+ print is dying

Advice to ManagementAdvice

compensate your interns or at least pay for their transportation. Other than that, you're doing great!

    I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    In my experience, the people who work here are nicer than those I met when I was at Conde Nast. Everyone is really down to earth and friendly and I love my boss.

    Cons

    Because Meredith is a publicly traded company, mass layoffs are common. I'm also considered a temp, even though I work full time and was hired permanently and there's not really much I can do to change my status.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the young people starting at the company! They have a fresh point of view and an understanding of what younger readers are looking for.
