    I worked at Tribune Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Benefits and hours were great. New blood came in recently so the company has been going through changes, it needed a cleanse, badly.

    Cons

    This company's full potential is yet to be reached but TV media is on the decline. Only a merge to digital will rebuild a stable organization.

    I have been working at Tribune Media full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    I have been working at the Trib for about 3 years now and I must say I was pretty excited about joining the company, the culture is pretty good, very relax environment, a huge perk is being able to Work from Home, pretty handy when you have small children. Pay is relatively good. The people I work with are pretty knowledgable, environment is good and it offers great challenges in a good way. People are very willing to share what they know with you so that is always good.

    Cons

    Poorly staffed, thus long working hours, working for a company in the advertising business requieres a lot of changes because there are always new ways to sell. Very hard to move up or get promoted, you must fight to get a promotion, because it is very unstable people are leaving and their positions never get back filled.
