Accounting Manager (Current Employee) – Washington, DC – December 6, 2017
great company to work for, depending on the department/team. promotion potential is bottleneck at a certain level. job security is currently low, due to restructuring, mainly for individuals outside of corporate.

Trying to be a digital company in a television world doesn't really work! Really low pay, terrible management and lack of care for employees with lots of experience. Offered buy out to employees 55 and older with 15 years tenure, the smart ones took it.
Fun place to work but Management changes too much and they are not committed to see others grow especially minorities. I love my career and my clients I work to provide them excellent customer service.

Approves of CEO
I have been working at TEGNA full-time
Flexible work environment, great co-workers, awesome benefits and a very down to earth leadership team. They acknowledge good work and reward employees for their efforts. Also, in my dealing with Sr. Leadership - they care a lot about their employees and are always proactively looking for ways to be a better employer - they treat people like family and not just another "Employee Number."
VERY big - so there can be some disconnect between departments and "branches" of the tree, but they are aware of that and seem to be working to improve cooperation and communication.
Advice to Management
Focus on engagement and ways to boost employee interest in staying with your organization for the long-term - increase mentorship/leadership programs. You have smart, young workforce that will be loyal to you if you show interest in their futures.

Worked under Tegna for two years. They paid us next to nothing, even with several years of prior experience. The raises and bonuses were a joke. Management did not know what they were doing and were placed as a result of corporate giving early retirements out to those who had been working with the stations for decades.

The people who work for TEGNA are great to work with -- passionate, caring, professional, and dynamic. The company is managed pretty lean, though, which makes resources hard to come by sometimes and tilts the work/life balance negatively. The management is good -- attentive, caring, and experienced -- but entrenched, leaving little in the way of growth opportunities.
Tight-knit and effective team, some opportunity for innovation
Few advancement opportunities, mediocre compensation, resources stretched thin
Would love delete my resignation sent effective 9-16-15. Would love to discuss possible return with Supervisor. I learned everyday, no day was ever the same, I loved interacting with co-workers and different TV station personnel and there were and always new things to learn.
Professional communications with Supervisor, certain co-workers.
