I worked at Media General full-time (More than 8 years)
Media General was a highly organized and professional environment. I enjoyed working with a respectful management team employing a solid development curriculum. The company culture was positive with an emphasis on work/life balance.
Subsequent to several mergers, the company name and logo was finally retired and is now Nexstar TV. Not having worked for Nexstar I cannot weigh-in on any issues with that company, but some of the interim mergers were marked by leadership challenges and an overall lack of communication to middle-management and staff.
Advice to Management
The management team in charge of the M&A process is no longer in place as is my understanding, however clear and concise communication about company targets and goals is always appreciated.
I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 1 day. I interviewed at Media General (Richmond, VA).
I was asked to fill-in for another temporary associate that did not return to company. Found the managers to be approachable, likable, and professional. My impromptu temporary assignment ultimately led to a full-time offer.
