    I have been working at Tribune Media full-time

    Pros

    I've worked on the Broadcast Television side for several years and my experience has been positive. Larry Wert's leadership team is solid and there is a lot of communication from them to the GMs and to the stations themselves. Strong sense of team and camaraderie. Clear goals and expectations. Room for advancement, lots of internal promotions, though it takes time. One of the few broadcast groups to continue to invest in newscasts and technology.
    Overall a great place to work.

    Cons

    Not the highest paying in the market but good work/life balance and benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in news, technology and personnel. It is paying off!
