    Pros

    Everyone was very pleasant to me and I was able to get the mentoring support I needed to do my job even better.

    Cons

    There were times when it was impersonal, but I expected some level of that being in a typical large organization's technology department.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up what you are doing, but remember that these are people that you are employing and they have needs outside of just money. Overall great place .

    I worked at Gannett full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Advancement. Strong company leadership. Training pretty good. Good pay and very good interactions with co-workers. Lots of opportunity for advancement. A company with a large diverse set of media assets which gives opportunity into different challenges.

    Cons

    There is a great deal of work to be done and not always a large number of people to do it. Still, there are rewards of the job, the company doing well, and great co-workers who make the place sing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to listen to employees and their needs. Not one policy fits all, so it's important to be flexible and understand what turns on employees.
