    Former Employee in Indianapolis, Indiana

    Best thing: rate of pay was good. There was a 401k program, and time off. Health insurance has turned into a cruel joke, especially for those with families.

    Former Employee in Gannett, Idaho

    Health plan is no better than plans available on the open market. 401k is decent. Vacation time is standard.

    Horrible all around, gets worse every year

    Current Employee in Denver, Colorado

    Low pay for contractors who do work a lot of hours instead the hours they are suppose to have.

    Current Employee in Nashville, Tennessee

    Time off is pretty average, and health insurance coverage is as well.

    Family insurance was raised nearly 100% from my 1st to 2nd year. It was not only raised it covered half

    Costs a lot plus out of pocket and deductibles are extremely high. United Health Care is horribl to work with and limited doctors in plan. Their "benefit center" is ridiculous. They outsourced it and when you have a question these people can't understand because they barely speak English.

    This company is the cheapest company I have ever worked for and they have absolutely no care about the welfare of their employees. Case in point is the medical/dental/eye insurance. For the Medical, it is through Blue Cross Blue Shield, dental is through Delta Dental, and vision is through Eye Med(which most eye care professionals are not in network). There is a $1500 deductible and after that it is a 20% coinsurance. This would be fine except that the monthly premiums are unacceptable. A single employee making under $35,000 will pay over $122 a month for medical/dental and vision. If you have children, the cost quadruples. On top of that, if the employee is married and the spouse has access to insurance through their employer but instead goes through the Gannett policy, it is an addition $250 a month out of the Gannett employee's paychecks.The employees that make $35,000 pay the same amount in premiums as the employees that make $149,000.

    Expensive health care premiums that penalize you for covering your spouse/dependents. Company used to offer good PPO plan but moved to save money in 2014 hurt employees.

    Health coverage sucks, big time.
