    I worked at Media General

    Pros

    - good people / coworkers
    - good experience in the field
    - ability to transfer to other properties within the chain

    Cons

    - economy causes leadership to place low value on journalists and content
    - rampant misogyny
    - constantly changing goals prevent solid foundation for action

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Cutting content won't win back readers or investors. You need to find a way to reach those you aren't reaching rather than self-mutilating the company to try to survive with a dying audience.
