Pros

Quality work with high local profile.
Good company name recognition.
Creative yet business environment with many talented professionals.
Diverse work and projects keep things fresh.

Cons

Poor pay and little room for negotiation.
They underestimate the amount of work it takes to complete projects which results in many over worked and over stressed employees.
Too much time spent on CYA work makes doing the actual job difficult.

Advice to Management

Needs a middle-senior management overhaul to fix the environment. Too many people are scared to lose their jobs and looking over their shoulder, rather than focus on doing a quality job.

    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 Management

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