I have been working at Tribune Company

Pros

Certain management and front line employees are diamonds in the rough at this company and are trying to navigate it to profitability in a dying industry

Cons

Previous leadership under the Zell cronies led to a complete mess and created a very unstable environment at the once reputable Tribune company

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clean house with old cronies, promote from within and try some drastic to be leader in transforming the media business.

    I worked at Tribune Company

    Pros

    Friendly co workers, nice benefits package, great downtown location and building includes a gym, cafeteria, etc. Looks good on your resume.

    Cons

    -Very low hourly pay for the mundane and monotonous work
    -Some managers lack management skills
    -Rewarded very little for hard work
    -Management dangles promotions in order to keep you from moving to a different company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't say it is a salary position when it is really hourly
    Higher rewards or commissions for the "small" workers in company
