    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Media General full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Growing company that has had many mergers lately with a new company taking over this fall. Lots of growth and changes but they have been mostly positive.

    Cons

    Lots of changes to processes that have not all been positive. Quick growth has caused a few issues with processes.

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

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful atmosphere. Relatively good salary. Good benefits.

    Cons

    With all the mergers and buy-outs, nobody's job is safe right now. With the duality of positions, the larger company is laying off Media General employees and putting their employees in those positions.

    Pros

    Amazing people to work with that help bring your client visions to life. Good backend support to manage various types of campaigns.

    Cons

    Things don't always move as fast as you want with a big company.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the support. Great assistance when you need it and happy to leave you alone when you do not.

    I have been working at Media General as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I get paid a decent amount and I really love the work I do. Edius is a very easy program to learn coming from a background in Adobe Premiere. The people here are super friendly and awesome to work with. It is only my third day, but I am super happy!

    Cons

    I work at night, and it's not the greatest time to be working, but it is better than 4am. I am also a contract employee, so no benefits and lower pay, but hopefully that will be different soon!

    I worked at Media General as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked at MGFX as a broadcast design intern for the 2015 spring semester. It was an encouraging experience for a designer, providing a wonderful learning opportunity and experience in a professional design production environment. I felt like I gained a lot through the experience, including a level of speed and a more practical approach to time management in the workplace.

    Cons

    The internship was unpaid (as many in the art/design field tend to be), available only as college credit.

    I worked at Media General full-time

    Pros

    If you do what you are supposed to do for the most part they leave you alone & let you do your job

    Cons

    No cons. I really didn't have any problems while I was employed there

    Advice to Management

    Upper management was very approachable. Mr. Bryan seemed to be able to call everyone by name & I really appreciated that.
