I worked at Media General full-time for more than a year

Pros

Active TV news industry; Health Insurance Better than Average; Vacation Days; High news numbers; Sold off Newspapers!

Cons

No raises; Furloughs; No opportunity for Growth; No bonuses; Pay is not competitive with market; Mismanagement and lack of communication within departments.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get new management. Not adaptable to changes in technology/ways of doing things. Still run on "old school" notion -- news flash, newspapers do not run the media industry anymore. Focus on things in specific markets. Utilize Social Media more.

    I worked at Media General full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good Coffee, exceptional hours, good parking, professional atmosphere.

    Cons

    Antiquated system and technology, poor management, lack of ingenuity. Takes two weeks to access reports. Too many chiefs, not enough indians. Far fetched expectations with out a firm foundation to work from.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Open your minds and doors to new ideas and spend some time and money in IT.
