    I worked at Tribune Media Services full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Tribune Media Services treats it's employees well & the workplace is friendly. I was part of a business that was purchased by Tribune Media Services several years ago. The management integrated our business, centralizing much of the support functions (HR, Accounting & Finance), however kept the sales and operations management in place along with most all of the staff. Management was communicative and stable despite the amount of turmoil at the parent company (Tribune Company) and the media business in general.

    Cons

    Pay raises are small - so negotiate the salary you want from the start of your employment there.

    Advice to Management

    The management team is friendly, communicative and stable about it's direction. My one critique is that while there is a lot of analysis on opportunities, taking more risks would be an area to improve upon.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Tribune Media Services.

    Interview

    Great interview process, good call-backs, etc. Nice HR department, but was hired through a temp agency. I was able to get a phone call back, a follow up interview, and a response to my follow up letter.
