I worked at Media General part-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good place to learn for a short time, work on your skills and try to numb yourself to inevitable M.T. Suits which remain after new owners.

Cons

Company has such a history of mismanagement and indifference to employees that any manager with 10+ years would have to be removed and that isn't likely. Not a single word from any company rep or source could be trusted. Every encounter with management forced one into a defensive position -management very confrontational. Exhausting micro-management.

Advice to Management

Until old management has reached their retirement or been ousted, little positive change can occur unless forced upon them by new owners.

    There is more to news delivery than the paper that lands in the driveway and the news you put on TV based on your schedule ... get with the times
