I worked at Media General

Pros

At one time MG was a progressive company but has now lost it's way.

Cons

Media General is struggling financially because of the heavy debt load and the down turn in the newspaper industry.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Complete review of how the company has been divided, especially the newspaper division. It is not working.

    I worked at Media General

    Pros

    The 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.

    Cons

    Laughable 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 ManagementAdvice

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