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

    Pros

    Direct management has always been helpful in day to day issues that may arise, and also have always been there to assist in finding other opportunities within the company, whether they be within the same team/department or on another.

    Cons

    There are a lot of changes that constantly happen within the company. However, more often than not, most employees don't hear about these changes until right before they happen, even when the changes could potentially impact their day-to-day activities/operations.

    Advice to Management

    Please, be more transparent with your employees. Transparency is the greatest asset of trust you can give them.
