Pros

MG is one of the biggest media companies and is experimenting with doing some innovative things in the way of converging broadcast, newspaper and internet into one media company. Work for a Media General company and you get the opportunity to expand your knowledge across several different mediums, making you a more valuable employee.

Cons

Media General is highly dependent on the newspaper industry, which is a dying industry. They are beginning to move towards a "web First" strategy, but they are an extremely slow moving ship to change. Ideas take a long time to vet their way up to corporate, and most things take so approval on so many levels of management that often, its not worth the time or energy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get off the newspaper high horse - its dead already.

    Pros

    It provides a lot of opportunities, and very good for personal development. I have a good balance between work and life, and I have also made a lot of new friends there.

    Cons

    Personal safety in Manchester, many people said they were robbed in Manchester. It is better not to walk alone in the evening.

    Pros

    The salary is good, as are the benefits such as the counselling service.

    Cons

    It would be better not to require a counselling service in order to work for your employer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I fear that if I were honest in this box I would be tracked down and attacked for damaging the reputation of the University. So best not.
