    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Promotes education & creativity. Also the environment was educational. The HR was very helpful when it came down to me dealing with grievance after loosing a family member.

    Cons

    Be ready to put in more than an average days work in the broadcast industry. There would be at times a handful of employees calling out sick and therefore our regular 9 hour day would turn into a 12 to 16 hr day.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the promotion of creativity!
