    Pros

    Great work environment and corporate culture! TEGNA is very innovative and works in front of the curve!

    Due to the size of the company, there is not a lot of synergy between offices.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    Opportunities to be creative, work independently and learn the journalism biz.

    Cons

    Upper management only wants to make money and doesn't care about its employees or their lives. Horrible compensation and benefits package. Healthcare package is decent but time off is ridiculous.

    Pros

    Such an innovative, amazing company to work for. Truly inspired by their ability to stay ahead of the curve and their focus on bettering the communities that they serve. Upper management is fantastic and very understanding. I also feel like the work/life balance as well as pay is great!

    Cons

    Healthcare plan is AWFUL. Sometimes feels as though the company is so large that opinions aren't heard, but that's what you get working for a big company. Upward mobility is hard.

    Pros

    Professional, talented On-air personalities who strive to put on a good product with limited resources.

    Cons

    Not enough staff to maintain the quality local programming this tv station was once known for.
    Long standing diversified employees get "rewarded" with more work and lousy schedules while less diversified employees do one job and better hours/days off.
    Corporate Management more worried about money than quality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your people.
    Spend more money on people than technology.

    I worked at TEGNA full-time

    Pros

    Some of the people I worked with were nice.

    Cons

    The equipment was around six years old. Management didn't care for behind the scene employees. Benefits are garbage. Training was nonexistent. Everything I learned I taught myself/watched how-to youtube videos.
