    I have been working at Tribune Media full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Each department has a different dynamic and rules. My group is good. Been here over 5 years. If you work hard, its acknowledged verbally and through your pay.

    Cons

    Would be nice to have more flexible working hours and work at home opportunities. Again, each department has its own policies.

    Advice to Management

    Always engage and be transparent.

    I worked at Tribune Media as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked in corporate IT. That organization has experienced several significant management changes in the past 5 years.
    I had the opportunity to work with current technology from VMware, NetApp, Infoblox, PURE, Cohesity and others. Two of the tenured staff were some of the best people that you could ever work with.

    Cons

    In the last 6 month the CEO has announced his departure. Nearly the entire IT team from the CTO down has been replaced. The new team lack vision. Leadership is more interested in cutting costs than optimizing ROI on IT resources. The CTO and VP's beneath him are ALL new to their positions, most less than 3 months. The CTO has abdicated responsibility for strategy and operations to the new VP's and they are all relying upon two engineers, one new and one tenured for guidance and direction. The fox is ruling the hen house....

    Advice to Management

    People Matter! Pay attention to those who are serving the best interest of the company and carefully manage those who have their own best interests at heart.

    I worked at Tribune Media (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good Pay, OK Benefits (vacation for example), 401k match, good location in Chicago (although with the sale of TT this may be temporary)
