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.

Assistant to the Publisher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – November 8, 2015
Worked with the Publishing Director/Publisher of several shelter magazine. As his assistant, I managed his calendar, travel, expenses and other administrative work, as necessary. I loved working with the PD as he was very knowledgeable, a forward-thinker, creative and caring. He allowed me the opportunity to work on several projects with the Marketing/Promotion department when I expressed interest. There was an atmosphere of camaraderie throughout the office and this was one of the first times I experienced in publishing in which the Editor and the Publisher got along and had great respect for each other. When the magazine was sold, I went with the Publisher to another publishing company.
creative; opportunity to work on different aspects of publishing
Freelance Video Editor (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – December 14, 2015
After working in the news industry for only a few months it doesn't take much for you to become jaded by news. I enjoyed working with my co-workers and everyone was very friendly even during crunch-time. The pay-rate was nice based upon the job requirements that were asked of myself. It is a solid starting-job to have if you are looking to take the next step career-wise.
high-energy work place where creative juices are constantly flowing!
Traditional Home, Associate Publisher (Former Employee) – New York, NY – February 4, 2013
Meredith Corporation provided an opportunity to move between its brands and to advance within the brands that I worked on. There is a good corporate culture with many groups working collaboratively to sell in programs and fulfill client needs. The hardest part of the job was finding enough time to develop and deliver the great ideas we had for our clients. The most enjoyable job was working with a great, dedicated team committed to doing their best everyday.

Custodian (Former Employee) – Lima, Oh – February 23, 2015
A typical day would start off with cleaning all doorknobs, phones and light switches in all the offices. Then, dusting all furniture but not disturbing anything on the attorney's desks. Vaccumming the carpets was usually next. Then, cleaning the break room and the bathrooms. I learned about hard work and the importance of cleaning every office (especially during cold and flu season). I did not have to deal with management much, but when I did they were great. My co-workers were my mother and sister. So, it was not bad working with them. The hardest part of the job was the constant heavy lifting and moving of furniture. The enjoyable part was being able to do the cleaning on weekends.

Management is hands on and you will learn a lot. You have the opportunity to interact with senior management and contribute to big client presentations. The corporate culture is laid back and friendly.
Maintenance Engineer (Current Employee) – Saginaw, MI – July 9, 2015
Fix everything that the news department breaks while being pulled away by numerous people paging you that they broke more things. Deal with 2 bosses that never talk to each other and they both think they are the ultimate authority about EVERYTHING. And....you're at half-staffing. Life's a peach.
Very unorganized management, terrible and overpriced insurance
