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

Pros

Worked mostly on broadcast television and online side in sales as both an AE then management and they have valuable advertising products. They also value their clients and focus on service is good at the local level

Cons

Still a newspaper, old school mindset to doing business that has been dead for at least 15 years. Too much old guard in decision making roles

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Invest in identifying and developing your local and general sales managers. As these people go so go your sales revenue. Additionally break down the walls between on air, creative, engineering and sales, crazy how little we were allowed to collaborate inter department.

    Pros

    Great people. Good pay. Very good management. Loved working there. Wish I was still working there.

    Cons

    In sales the down side is always missing goals. But, the goals were pretty fair.

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

    Pros

    They usually would let employees leave a little early the day before holidays, pretty good pay, great insurance, and pretty good paid time off.

    Cons

    The biggest con is the management at the station level. Crying out to upper management for help produced no results. Management needs to be firm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees. The reason many are leaving is due to management. Hello! Why would employees be looking for other jobs! Please, MG, look in the mirror.
