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

Great people. Good pay. Very good management. Loved working there. Wish I was still working there.

    I worked at Media General full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Some of the stations did let their employees go early on holidays and had station parties.

    Cons

    pay is not the best, the management is terrible ( good old boys network alive and well ), people who were in tight with "movers and shakers" got key jobs that otherwise would never get even considered, lots of pressure to "produce" and watching consultants parade in and out of the stations giving them the same tired and unproductive advice and walking out with LOADS of cash

    Advice to Management

    Quit worrying about YOUR pockets and start worrying about your employee's pockets. You worry about cost, yet your poor pay and conditions force employees to leave. You then hire a new person and they make mistakes and errors in learning that cost you MONEY.

    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.
