    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    When the economy was good this was the best place. We had many people in the dept that worked there for over 30 years. They knew what they were doing and did it well.

    Cons

    When a manager gets all the finance dept let go and outsourced to Texas then you know they aren't reall caring about their long time employees. Once the Zell administration took over they gave us song and dance daily on how things would change and they sure did from bad to hell.

    Advice to Management

    Respect the people that worked for your very hard. It is something they never really did well.

    Pros

    It's a Historical Company
    It's Chicago based
    The Tower itself is an amazing piece of architecture
    In general it's a pleasant place to work

    Cons

    Management turnover in the past few years has lead to what feels like territories, meaning new vs old management fighting for turf. Hopefully all can be pulled back together and continue to move forward as one company. Here's to hoping Trib will be around for my children.

    Advice to Management

    There is a perception that it is "us vs them" in multiple areas. One example would be the business vs technology. Also, in Technology, Chicago vs San Antonio vs LA. Can we stop this and just be one team at one company planning for an amazing future.
