I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (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.

    I worked at Meredith Corporation as an intern (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.

    I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Terrific team of people that work together. In a sea of publishing companies that focus on the superficial, Meredith is a place where intelligence, hard work and collaboration are rewarded.

    Cons

    Since Meredith is a public company, their primary focus is on P&L and they run a tight ship. Corners are cut and benefits are lacking in comparison to other companies.

    Advice to Management

    In order to maintain top talent, salaries need to remain competitive and merit rewards go a long way. An extra few days off for a job well done (if there is a raise freeze) does make a difference.
