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

    Pros

    You're working in TV. That's pretty much it.

    Cons

    Whatever position you hired into you will be stuck in forever. Don't think whatever you're applying to is opportunity to shift into whatever you really want. You will NEVER get there no matter how qualified you are so be happy with the position you're applying for. They don't hire from within so don't hold out for the hope of promotion. Unless of course you can become best friends with management and work 60 hours a week. Also when you do quit they will blacklist you to every TV and Radio station competor within a 100 mile radius so if you want to continue working in the industry make sure you have another job at another Radio or TV station lined up.
