    I have been working at Meredith Corporation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I have worked at Meredith in the past and have accepted a position to work there for the second time. They have a truly unique company with a great culture, and I am excited to return. Based on my experience, I would describe my co-workers as collaborative, creative, intelligent and on a personal level, genuine and thoughtful. Culture there puts a strong emphasis on work/life balance, so you will be glad to come to work and do your best. This is a chord that runs throughout and makes a huge difference in the work environment.

    Cons

    As a graphic designer with a strong background in print, I wanted to get more experience in digital media. The only reason I left Meredith in the first place was to pursue what at the time was a better learning opportunity. Hoping they put more emphasis on digital media in the future.

    Pros

    Such a great company to work for! There is lots of room for growth and learning. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a fun and challenging environment.

    Cons

    It can be hard to click with some of the women in the office. It's a bit like high school when it comes to making friends. Everyone is generally nice, some can be a bit passive.

    Advice to Management

    Work on having more team building activities. If it is required it might force the people that refuse to split up from their core friend group to socialize.
