In four years I learned that Media General will not get past their news paper mentality.

Pros

They are spread out nicely around the south eastern united states. They have some nice perks for working in media and have lots of way to help other people.

Cons

They have tons of debt, tons of news papers, and no plan on how to make money. Their is little growth and constant threat of lay offs and furloughs. Internal transfers are never followed up on and would rather hire local less qualified people then keep current people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need a clear plan forward and stop asking employees for ideas or their money.
