A company going to the pits

Senior Executive (Former Employee)
Richmond, VA (US)

I worked at Media General full-time for more than 3 years

ProsSome nice folks who genuinely know the business and really works hard.

ConsGood ol' Boys and Girls club. All taking care of each other until they retire in the next 5 to 10 years. No reason to take chances or innovate.

Board is completely useless.

The person who runs the Columbus station is a big loser and everyone in corporate wonders why he doesn't get fired. CEO is a loser, has no vision or backbone. Incoming CEO has no experience and is a genuine prick. The company has no future and they know it. It looks like they are getting ready to sell off the rest of the business in the near future.

Advice to Senior ManagementStopping fooling yourselves. You have no innovation in your blood.

Stop lying to your employees.

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

Bait and Switch

Account Executive (Current Employee)
