    Chicago, IL

    ProsDespite 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementAlternate 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    User Experience Lead (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

    ProsTribune 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.

    ConsComing 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 Senior ManagementStay strong and carry on.

    Great Company

    Field Sales Manager (Former Employee)
    Orlando, FL

    ProsGreat 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.

    ConsNewspaper 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 Senior ManagementThe 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.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    The best is yet to come.

    Divisional Sales Manager (Current Employee)
    Chicago, IL

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

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementCommunicate the vision. Clearly. Consistently. Get rid of the poison quickly and without regret.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
