sinking ship

Account Executive (Former Employee)

ProsThe best reason to work at Media General is meeting fellow coworkers who mistakingly took the same position you did thinking they might set the world on fire. The job also comes with a certain amount of freedom.

ConsLaughable pay, always on call (blackberry,) TV and newspaper media are dying - Media General too late to notice. Management arbitrarily hire from outside. No respect for older employees. Little vacation time.

Advice to Senior ManagementQuit making up ridiculous positions to find friends a job. Realize TV and newspaper are the past.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
