Pros

Great boss to work for, promoted several times. Was able to work with the growing digital group.

Downsizing, good ole boys (promote those who aren't qualified to find a space for them. Few female leaders. Terrible CEO

Took too long to realize and make needed changes.

    I have been working at Media General full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The pay is ok, and they have air conditioning inside.

    Cons

    In sales you will be surrounded by snakes, more everyone will smile in your face and then bite you in the ass if you let your guard down. Also It is one of the places that when you start and a assistant then you will stay as one. The only way to move around to something new here is to leave.

    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.
