    No opinion of CEO

    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 Management

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


  2. "This is a top-notch publishing company to work for - no complaints."

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Excellent benefits. You get to work with some of the best people in the publishing industry. Editorial and art staff gain valuable experience at Meredith.

    Cons

    You need to be someone who can deal with constant change within the company. The person I report to is very good about keeping me up to speed on upcoming changes so I'm ready to adapt.

    Advice to Management

    LIfe/work balance is difficult to manage. Any training or help in this area would be beneficial.
