    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.

    Pros

    Great coworkers, standard benefits and vacation. Raises (can be embarrassingly low even if performance is high. ) Growth depending on location.

    Cons

    Acquisition. No one knows what's happening. Acquisition is common in this industry, what's not common is the major media involvement (Sinclair, need I say more) and the length of time this has been going on. People are leaving, many more want to , or, they fear they will be let go. The environment is unhealthy because of the unknown factors.

    Advice to Management

    Read the cons above.
