I have been working at Tribune Company

Pros

Prestigious, great national identity. Fun perks.

Cons

Promotions are damn near impossible without leaving the company. Bonuses or anything merit related is a pipe dream. You can stay forever as long as you turn in mediocre work all the time. Way too much management to get anything actually done.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop being risk-averse because you're afraid of rocking the boat.

    Pros

    Free parking on weekends
    Great benefits

    Cons

    Coming is splitting into 2 companies and with this leads to the politics and layoffs. The Tribune had every intention of ending the newspapers off to die, but lied to us about job loss. We were told they were maintaining the staff in technology that they have, but yet are doing sniper layoffs to stay out of the news.

    Also, the systems while good, are a mess, departments work in Silos and there is no communication, therefore systems such as the data warehouse get impacted by changes to other systems and the warehouse jobs fail because nobody could reach out and include us in the change. It was a fun place to work when they were a strong company, but as soon as the split started, it has gone downhill with layoffs of people and others leaving. If yo uare not going to the new Tribune Media side, I would stay away from Tribune publishing....it is being sent off to wither away.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue about things, your employees are an asset! You would have no company without employees, how about treating them better than giving 1 day notice of a layoff.
