Pros

Prestigious, great national identity. Fun perks.

Cons

Promotions are damn near impossible without leaving the company. Bonuses or anything merit related is a pipe dream. You can stay forever as long as you turn in mediocre work all the time. Way too much management to get anything actually done.

Advice to Management

Stop being risk-averse because you're afraid of rocking the boat.

    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Some great people to work with especially in California and Florida. Office is in a convenient location and there can be flexible work conditions.

    Cons

    Companies are only as good as their employees. Tribune drove out all their great employees through career killing assignments, health degrading working hours, demotions and finally layoffs.

    Advice to Management

    Provide support and training for your remaining employees so they can grow their careers and provide value to your company. Set reasonable deadlines so your remaining employees will get the needed rest and family time needed to stay healthy and reduce your health benefits cost. Provide salaries commensurate to the value an employee brings to the company. Executives do provide value to a company but certainly not 300 times that of the average employee salary. Pay equity will attract and keep valuable employees.
