Still too many self-interested middle managers counting till retirement. Incapable managers remain.

Web Developer (Former Employee) Richmond, VA

ProsGood place to learn for a short time, work on your skills and try to numb yourself to inevitable M.T. Suits which remain after new owners.

ConsCompany has such a history of mismanagement and indifference to employees that any manager with 10+ years would have to be removed and that isn't likely. Not a single word from any company rep or source could be trusted. Every encounter with management forced one into a defensive position -management very confrontational. Exhausting micro-management.

Advice to Senior ManagementUntil old management has reached their retirement or been ousted, little positive change can occur unless forced upon them by new owners.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Worst place I ever worked, bar none!

    Account Executive (Former Employee) Columbus, GA

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


    Pros: Knowledgeable and helpful co-workers who cared about the product. The product… Cons: Managers are inept as it gets. Good ole boy system alive and well in their linen suits. Upper management is absolutely clueless. … Advice to Senior Management: Already given and rejected. They prefer to ride this… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
