    All of the standard benefits you would expect from a company, however not the best insurance company.. cost driven.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Graphic Artist in Richmond, Virginia

    a select number of pay sick days, accrued paid vacation (depending on how long you've worked with them), good medical, standard vision and dental, paid holidays (if you could get them off), 401k -- everything was pretty decent until Nexstar came in and started cutting benefits

    StarStarStarStarStar Former News Anchor Reporter in Raleigh, North Carolina

    Media General's health benefits package was above average; low deductibles and several choices among plans and providers

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in El Segundo, California

    401k match 50% of first 6% contributed was their best perk and especially liked that they auto enrolled you so most likely people would continue with contributing. Another positive perk was offering HMO & PPO option to CA employees. Their Health & Wellness Program was weak as it just asked employees to complete their health risk assessment. The Corp Benefits Team were fantastic! PTO was broken into three buckets - vacation, illness and personal time. It was very competitive to other companies time off plans. Work life balance didn't happen for Management especially if they wanted to get promoted. It was an unfortunate part of the culture.
