    Pros

    Incredibly talented co-workers.
    Flexibility with scheduling; was allowed to swap shifts with others in my position so that we didn't use up PTO days.
    Open door policy.

    Cons

    Under-market pay... VERY under-market.
    Not enough PTO days.
    A warning that our show was being cancelled would have been super.

    "Not enough compensation/ poor management"

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    Some great coworkers, good experience on resume

    Cons

    Not great compensation at all, a lot of egos, no room for growth. Not that professional. Could really use better management in a few departments, mainly creative department.

    Advice to Management

    Try to include everyone in the specific Dept. When having department meetings. Could really use some help with delegating tasks especially when the employee asks for work multiple times. Just overall management could really use help.

    I worked at Tribune Media part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The staff and other employees are all wonderful people to work with! And working as a PA is good, honest work with plenty of learning opportunities.

    Cons

    Advancement is considerably slow and the pay is not very sustainable. Great for students and post grads living at home, bad for people with a high overhead of living.
    The hours are also difficult to work with.

    Pros

    Great facilities, beautiful studio, and fun bonus perks.

    Cons

    Little chance of advancement, (some) unmotivated co-workers, and lack of communication between departments.

    Advice to Management

    Eliminate the non-performers and offer opportunities for advancement either through training or actual promotions. "Good enough" is not a phrase that should be tolerated.
