Freelance Sales Development Director (Former Employee) – New York, NY – July 12, 2017
I was a freelance employee but treated as a full time sales person that was representative of my bosses. The brand MORE was an amazing product and unfortunately was folded -therefore I lost my position.
Security Officer (Former Employee) – West Des Moines, IA – June 26, 2017
The atmosphere at Meredith is wonderful. Business casual and the freedom to decorate your office to make it feel more like a comfortable environment. On-site cafeteria is very nice. Management is very approachable. Productive environment with wonderful people to work with.
Video Producer (Former Employee) – Des Moines, IA – May 18, 2017
I regularly produced, edited and revised 10-15 videos every two weeks with my team. Our time was also spent assisting with the corporate video needs of the Des Moines location of Meredith and handling corporately sponsored Facebook lives. Overall, I was able to be involved in a myriad of opportunities through this internship as given assignments as a coworker versus just an intern.

The people are the soul of Meredith, and they are devoted and hardworking. It's a no-nonsense, get-things-done atmosphere. The media business is hard and the transition to digital has been slow. Continued innovation will be necessary.
Copy Chief, Shape and Fitness (Former Employee) – New York, NY – May 9, 2017
Fundamentally, the Meredith Corporation cares much, much more about their profit than their employees. The upper management views the corporations publication as faceless products rather than vehicles for information, enlightenment, and entertainment. Each year the staff of the magazines is trimmed to the point of ridiculousness.
I worked for two years in the Creative Services/Promotions department for a local broadcast station. The station was great, I got to do a lot of exciting and unique projects in my time. I was hired in a newly created role, which was challenging in defining what it was and how it'd work for the department and station. I really enjoyed working with the community to sponsor or host events and showcasing our talent and content. Management was in transition during my time, but were always supportive and open to new ideas. The people at this specific station made it a great place to work and I was sad to leave, but had an exciting opportunity in New York City.

Proofreader (Former Employee) – Des Moines, Iowa – March 24, 2017
I was impressed with how well organized the freelance process was. I took a grammar exam and was given my first assignment shortly afterwards. I received the company's style book also in a very efficient way.
Copy Editor who lined up my work was very dependable.
Photo Editor (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 28, 2017
Meredith has a high aim to merge, buy, sell and acquire media. They are visibly gearing towards broadcast media and just starting to understand a digital environment. In the process, it would seem they are minimizing their print. Print has remained stagnant with decreasing budgets and staff. Their multi-cultural division is laughable and practically extinguished due to Meredith's disregard to the growing population. There are very few promotions and no incentives. Interestingly enough, each creative division has sensational talent. It is a good place to touch down, learn, and then move on quickly. Don't linger in hopes of merit.
I enjoyed learning the broadcast business with this team.
Account Manager - KFXO (Former Employee) – Bend, OR – January 31, 2017
Meredith was a great company to work for but in Bend, advancement was not really available. I left to go to work for NPG of Oregon, where I advanced from Local Account Manager, to Local Sales Manager, National Sales Manager and then to the position of Director of Sales.

Senior Video Producer (Current Employee) – Des Moines, IA – July 7, 2016
Meredith is a enjoyable place to work. Management does a good job of letting you have a good work life balance. The positions I have worked in have been challenging and I have learned from my co-workers. Is great to work at a place where you job can be serious but you have fun while working.

Great place to work for with fairly flexible hours. Friendly people and many different departments and room to grow and move around. The company also provides an in-house fitness center and a variety of classes throughout the day.
