    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity for growth, "real-world" experience in a newsroom

    Low salary, long contracts, toxic work environment

    I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time

    Pros

    I've made some great friends there.

    Cons

    Lots of politics and favoritism. The same people seem to always get promoted. Very top-heavy in my department. Budgets are cut every year, and management gets bonuses based on common in under budget.

    Advice to Management

    At some point, cutting the budget undermines morale to a greater extent than the money saved.

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

    Pros

    They have good office perks if you work for the right teams.

    Cons

    Meredith has utter disregard for some of their employees and treat them like trash. They laid of people and them treated them as throw aways. The lack of communication and attention is appalling.

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

    Pros

    Most of the people are great to work with. Very high value is set on team collaboration and getting to know one another. Lot of events and free tickets. Very open and welcoming.

    Cons

    Some teams are poor at communication. Expectations are set very high for the amount of work. Resource allocation is off, many managers do not understand their team's capabilities. Not enough team members in the right areas for projects.

    Cool benefits. REAAAAALLY underpay all team members.

    Advice to Management

    Hire staff for the right job. Pay people better. Make sure team members have enough support. Cut down on gossip and negativity from the small set of members who do that.

    I worked at Meredith Corporation full-time

    Pros

    They do a lot to make sure you enjoy the atmosphere. Health center, on-site cafeteria, and lots to do to socialize with coworkers

    Cons

    They work you a lot. A lot of layoffs. Not always clear with instructions and goals (at least in the department I was in).
