Former Employee - Account Executive in Richmond, VA (US)
Former Employee - Account Executive in Richmond, VA (US)

I worked at Media General full-time (more than an year)

Pros

Good Coffee, exceptional hours, good parking, professional atmosphere.

Cons

Antiquated system and technology, poor management, lack of ingenuity. Takes two weeks to access reports. Too many chiefs, not enough indians. Far fetched expectations with out a firm foundation to work from.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Open your minds and doors to new ideas and spend some time and money in IT.

    Too Many Managers who manage nothing but their personal lives

    Pros

    Great Place to grow professionally. There are many benefits to working for #1 Newspaper, #1 TV station and #1 Local News Website.

    Cons

    With so many changes in 2011 managers and employees were left wondering if their job would exist in the next week. They recently laid off 165 employees a week before Christmas. If you have a great year and bring in revenue over your annual budget you will pay for it the following year. To save money and even the playing field your percentage paid will be scaled down. You must work twice as hard to make the same as the previous year.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trim middle management, empower and create incentives that motivate your employees, effectively combat regional competition, and invest in younger employees through management training.
