I have been working at Tribune Media full-time (More than 3 years)
I have been working at the Trib for about 3 years now and I must say I was pretty excited about joining the company, the culture is pretty good, very relax environment, a huge perk is being able to Work from Home, pretty handy when you have small children. Pay is relatively good. The people I work with are pretty knowledgable, environment is good and it offers great challenges in a good way. People are very willing to share what they know with you so that is always good.
Poorly staffed, thus long working hours, working for a company in the advertising business requieres a lot of changes because there are always new ways to sell. Very hard to move up or get promoted, you must fight to get a promotion, because it is very unstable people are leaving and their positions never get back filled.

It is a good place to gain experience for recent graduates. The coverage area provides for a variety of situations for young journalist to build their portfolios and develop skills.
The pay is below what the cost of living is for the area making it necessary to for some to have a second job. The editorial department is understaffed, forcing journalists to work longer hours. Staff is salary so there isn't overtime. Layoffs are common due to the nature of the newspaper business.
Work for a minimum of 2 to 3 years simply to gain new knowledge in publishing , internet , marketing and advertising technologies. Then move on to stable and career enhancing employer. If you're looking for a place to launch a career and retire.....FORGET ABOUT IT !!!!
Current unstable work environment . Company's unwillingness to reward/compensate employees in an equitable manner...high profile disrespect and aggression for senior employees.....the lies and deceitful behavior by management....dirty pool......no retirement to speak of .....
Advice to Management
Run it to the ground...you dont deserve the salary and power given to you.....I'd rather see it explode and die than be taken over by money hungry , greedy and selfish groups that have permeated every industry in this country.
