Pros

Benefits are okay, not remarkable. It's a starting place: a place to grow skills, learn new software programs and the like.

Cons

Lurking supervisors, weak middle managers who have had their jobs forever. Notably outdated company culture and management trends. Little value is attributed to outstanding performers. Staff reductions of those who actually do the work are commonplace.

Advice to Management

With new owners it is hoped that there will be a major improvement in managers and morale.

    Pros

    At one time MG was a progressive company but has now lost it's way.

    Cons

    Media General is struggling financially because of the heavy debt load and the down turn in the newspaper industry.

    Advice to Management

    Complete review of how the company has been divided, especially the newspaper division. It is not working.
