    Pros

    Despite having high work standards, Tribune keeps a comfortable work environment. They let you be yourself while at the same time offer advice and continuous training and reviews.

    Cons

    Some weeks the amount and team and group meetings can take a significant amount of time out of the work day hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Alternate team and group meetings weekly. Some time when individual, team, and group meetings fall in the same week, performance can suffer so the customer service side is weakened.

    Pros

    Tribune Technology has a fantastic working environment within the Chicago Tribune building. Along with a high-tech work space, employees enjoy working with many smart and dedicated people.

    Cons

    Coming out of bankruptcy at the beginning of 2013, Tribune Co. employees are dealing with all that accompanies that process - from uncertainty to the rumor mill.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay strong and carry on.

    I worked at Tribune Company

    Pros

    Great Management, advancement opportunity, and competitive pay. The Tribune company was by far one of the best companies that I have ever had the pleasure in working for.

    Cons

    Newspaper industry is going through a very hard time so there were many layoffs while I was there. Budget cuts were a growing problem and moral was sacrificed because of it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The only advise I would have to management is to continue going lean and keep the newspaper around. There are still many ways that money is being waisted within the walls of the Tribune.

    Pros

    Limitless opportunity. Proven track record of new management. The opportunities are limitless for those willing to work.

    Cons

    Uncertainty among some. Horrible attitude of some delusional staff. Dinosours still roam the building.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate the vision. Clearly. Consistently. Get rid of the poison quickly and without regret.
