    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!

    Pros

    Honestly, none. I hated going into work every day.

    Cons

    They expect you to work harder with fewer people and less money and make the same product. Or just don't care that the product is not up to par.

    Advice to Management

    Think about your employees as human beings.

    Pros

    There's a lot of enthusiasm about the brands carried and the audience served.

    Cons

    There's room for improvement in regards to thinking through decisions before acting. There's something to be said for building a roadmap in order to arrive at your desired destination.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe don't announce 35% raises for your top executives the same month you release a couple of hundred people to the unemployment line.

    "Good local company"

    Pros

    Family atmosphere among coworkers. Great experience. Ability to grow as a producer.

    Cons

    Very expensive benefits. Lots of extra steps required just to keep insurance costs “down.” Not much promotion from within. Whatever pay you agree to when you hire on, assume you’ll be making pretty much the same in 5 years, even though benefit costs will rise each year.
