      Great Company

      Pros

      They try hard to listen to their employees. Always sending out surveys in hopes of improving company culture--- I've never worked for a company that made such a huge effort.

      Cons

      Stressful place to work. High expectations for minimal time given. You have to be careful about how you voice your frustrations, because often times management doesn't want to hear it.

      Pros

      Good benefits, awesome PTO, stations are evolving to keep up with the changing media landscape

      Tegna really values MMJing, which isn't always a good thing. Burn out can happen pretty quickly.

      Pros

      West Texas, great middle management, some employees in key positions are incredibly talented. Very relaxed atmosphere. They recently got rid of a real problem employee.

      Cons

      Upper corporate is so focused on their big markets that they don’t pay attention to the smaller markets and stations that need to be rebuilt.

      Pros

      TEGNA is a company that is dedicated to their employees and puts people first. The benefits, salaries, etc are all competitive. Corporate leadership is plugged into the pulse of the stations and isn't solely fixated on ratings and revenue. Of all the TV companies I've been with (4) TEGNA is by far the best for employees.

      Cons

      It's TV news. You're doing less with more and being guided by social media. The general public hates you thanks to the political climate and the pandemic. If you're doing ground level work in a newsroom, it's a lot to handle. TEGNA will support you but it takes a toll mentally.
