Media General's health benefits package was above average; low deductibles and several choices among plans and providers
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.
Weak 401K match. Health insurance is not very good.
Great benefits with low deductibles ($700)
401(k) match up to 3%, medical, vision and dental. EAP -free service. LTD, STD, attorney services. 9 holidays and 2 personal days. 3 weeks of vacation at 3 yrs if service.
Escalating costs of employee portions of premiums
Media General gives employees their birthday off of work.
Health insurance is expensive, but time off policy isn't bad.
Best is the 401k match. Gaining another week of vacation when reaching the 3 year mark. Worst the insurance. Unless you like Anthem. I find their website horrible and their customer service lacking.
Full package from which to select, especially medical benefit options.
