  1.  

    Young Broadcasting (now merged w/Media General) about on-par with rest of industry.

    I have been working at Young Broadcasting full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    With the fairly recent merger with Media General, the overall group equals about 70 stations. There is some strength in numbers, but the corporate management strikes me as being more reactive.

    Cons

    Because of the Young/Media General merger which will be followed around the first of the year by that group merging with LIN Broadcasting, the outlook is questionable. Salaries are roughly average for the market. Promotions within the station are few and far between (Exception: News PAs often get promoted to show producers, then move on after 1 or 2 years.)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Come to a decision re: creating a working plan for the future, or continue doing things "on the cheap."

    Pros

    There is a sense of family with this company. Management is really good to the employees. Employees work together to get the job done.

    Not the newest equipment; but upgrades being made throughout the company.

    I worked at Young Broadcasting

    Pros

    the money was competitive and my coworkers were very nice.

    Cons

    senior management is incompetent to the point that is like comedy. they should make a sitcom called - our leaders fall asleep in meetings.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    well it's too late now for that I think.
