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

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

    Pros

    Good 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.

    Cons

    Company 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 ManagementAdvice

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