Pros

If you do what you are supposed to do for the most part they leave you alone & let you do your job

No cons. I really didn't have any problems while I was employed there

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management was very approachable. Mr. Bryan seemed to be able to call everyone by name & I really appreciated that.

    I worked at Media General full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to grow and have new responsibilities
    Company is a well-known name in news field
    From what I remember, the benefits were decent

    Cons

    Furloughs and staff reductions (2008-2010)
    High-paid execs, but that seems to have been taken care of in the last couple of years
    It's not so much the company but the news field in general, overworked and underpaid employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize and appreciate what the people at each station do to keep the company going. Many people work around-the-clock, on holidays, and vacation for this career ... and are rarely compensated adequately. A little extra money, time off, or a pat on the back helps a lot.
