It started good, got bad, then tripped down the rabbit hole to hit the awful bottom.

Producer (Former Employee)
Spartanburg, SC (US)

I worked at Media General full-time for more than a year

ProsActive TV news industry; Health Insurance Better than Average; Vacation Days; High news numbers; Sold off Newspapers!

ConsNo raises; Furloughs; No opportunity for Growth; No bonuses; Pay is not competitive with market; Mismanagement and lack of communication within departments.

Advice to Senior ManagementGet new management. Not adaptable to changes in technology/ways of doing things. Still run on "old school" notion -- news flash, newspapers do not run the media industry anymore. Focus on things in specific markets. Utilize Social Media more.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
