Pros

Benefit Package. Outperforming peers in a difficult market

Cons

If you can afford a Nanny this is the place to work; if not.....keep looking if you want to attend those extracurricular activities your children are involved in.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay attention to those who actually do the work; without them the company would not exist! Would it really be so terrible to give up some of your bonus money and implement an all employee profit sharing program or all employee bonus program to reward the 'little' people?

    Pros

    Meredith Corp is generally an open, family-friendly work atmosphere (although that would vary magazine to magazine). They care most about the finished product, not any kind of fancy image like some other publishers.

    Cons

    Some of the magazine management transition was rough and rocky but that's to be expected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication between the home office in Des Moines and mid-level employees in NYC would be helpful.
