    Pros

    Well-run TV stations, especially the legacy FOX O&Os

    Still trying to figure out what kind of media company they want to be

    Clearly communicate goals, especially how they integrate into larger corporate vision

    Pros

    Decent pay, good benefits for health, dental, and 401K.

    Cons

    Schedule always changes. Must be flexible and you will work weekends and holidays.

    Advice to Management

    Create an incentive for when ratings increase or when web page gets hits. No motivation to do well when your pay stays the same weather your number one, two, or three in the market.

    Pros

    401K match was generous and started from day 1. Colleagues were a pleasure to work with and a real sense of camaraderie existed throughout the workplace.

    Cons

    Concerns about the bottom line caused near constant changes of direction by management and the higher ups in the company resulting in lots of unexpected turns. Also lots of concern about losing my job due to layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Focus on one way to increase profits and stick with it instead of constantly changing tactics. Management never waited long enough to see if something worked.

    Pros

    I want to say none. However the company was once a fun and enjoyable place to work. Met many lifelong friends and had some good times.

    Cons

    The talk by management of transparency and rewarding hard work is a sham. They have become heartless, cruel and inept from the top down. This is not only from my experience but from others who have left the sinking ship and have gone on to have more enjoyable lives away from Tribune Media.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know that they take advice but I would suggest that they start treating their employees like they themselves would want to be treated.

    Pros

    There are many different areas where mgt does not include other departments in communication.

    Cons

    Very stressful jobs which require employees to be always to be perfect in every aspect of any position. Can be terminated at any time.

    Advice to Management

    Need to open the door to communicate and drop the glass ceiling of playing favoritism.

    Pros

    There are none. No one in the company has anything good to say about it unless they're highly paid executives who love the place because they're all gold diggers

    Cons

    So many...No work-life balance; Management DOES NOT recognize and reward good hard working employees; Too many high level executives without any knowledge or work ethics; No morality in management; The higher the management the more f/ up; No respect for any employees at all unless you're a high level executive; Management thinks of employees as mules who just need to work and not say anything or have a personal life; No growth or advancement or opportunities are presented to the employees, especially good employees...even if you pursue something they will shut it down and they will terminate your employment if you try to take any other positions within the company; only upper management gets bonus and extras; Very cheap company; Will cut corners from all employees but spends ridiculous money on top management; Company is on a downfall and soon will file another bankruptcy to embezzle all the money they made

    Advice to Management

    Recognize & reward your good hardworking employees instead of lazy low-class ones who make others do their job; cut off the fat from the top & stop hiring high executives with ridiculous salaries and no talent & use one tenth of their salaries to reward your good lower level employees and advance them instead of hiring outsiders with no knowledge; listen to your employees; be respectful to them and don't belittle them; DON'T be such cheap bastards

    Pros

    Large company, good benefits, fair salary

    Cons

    No real leadership from high up, no clear direction, never seem to have any money

    Advice to Management

    To compete, you need to spend like your competitors do, investing in tech and good people. You sure aren't doing any of that, and consequently, you're not competing.
