    I worked at Media General full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Knowledgeable and helpful co-workers who cared about the product. The product was a great one to sell. The compensation was very reasonable.

    Cons

    Managers are inept as it gets. Good ole boy system alive and well in their linen suits. Upper management is absolutely clueless. Middle management is just trying to hang onto their jobs. While I was there, middle managers were partying with reps and handing accounts out to the girls they partied with. Upper management was receiving reports of Peyton Place and they would shoot the messenger. The place was so bad they bought a traffic system that was virtually unusable. No body bothered to check it out before this huge corporate purchase? Thousands upon Thousands of dollars lost in advertiser dollars because they could not figure the system out. Departments were not allowed to talk to other departments unless they went through Department heads. If this company makes it through the decade, color me surprised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Already given and rejected. They prefer to ride this wagon till the wheels fall off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There is more to news delivery than the paper that lands in the driveway and the news you put on TV based on your schedule ... get with the times
