    I worked at Gannett full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The developers, designers, and immediate supervisors are excellent workers and are the foundation of the department. The pay is decent if you're straight out of college and it is a great starter job. Benefits are acceptable and HR seems to genuinely care (when they can be found).

    Cons

    Upper management is the problem. They are uninformed and choose to stay that way which is immeasurably detrimental to the department and its revenue. The leadership staff is continually trapped between ignorant upper management and the very reasonably upset artists. The department is continually making rash moves which tend to go in the following order: 1. Upper Management determines that something needs to be improved and formulates an ill-conceived plan. 2. Some unfortunate member of leadership is dragged into an unexpected meeting and is bullied into promptly executing the ill-conceived plan. (They may try to explain why the idea is terrible but upper management tends not to listen.) 3. Now that leadership has a moment to try and improve on the plan, they do so as much as they can, while under the ridiculous deadline that had been set. 4. Plan is executed. Plan fails. Leadership is blamed by both upper management and the design staff.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff. Not just your leaders, but the actual artists. Learn more about what the designers do. Sit down, shadow a designer, and let them talk. Take notes even! You’ll be so much better for it. They are smart, capable, talented individuals and you are not tapping into their full potential. Properly formulate your plans. Wait until a plan is fully formulated before executing it. Have monthly leadership meetings. Let all of your leadership, both in Indianapolis and in Des Moines, get together and come up with some bigger ideas. They could solve every problem if given the opportunity to brainstorm. Get your promotions and compensation under control. People are going to talk about how much they get paid. Make sure that when they do, they aren’t outraged. Most of them have families and student loan debt. Please do not make light of their livelihoods. Be more trusting. All too often artists are treated as though they are children when they had done nothing to earn that judgement. Don’t assume what someone does is not important and never ever treat someone like they are expendable, even if you think they are. Firstly, It’s cruel and secondly, it makes you look terrible and many will lose their respect for you. Also, don’t assume someone is being rude to you. Sometimes people are just being direct and logical. That doesn’t mean that they are trying to hurt your feelings. Don’t assume that your needs are more important. Often leadership is dealing with fifteen things at once and your constant messages are not only incredibly irritating but you are making everything take longer to get done. Be kind. It’s really easy to do. Just think about what you’re going to say before you say it. Don’t encourage “trash talk”. Tell your RMC’s to respect the artists and leadership; they often do not. (You need to train ten or more new RMC’s and most of the current ones need a lesson in basic etiquette.) It’s not the designers that need to improve it’s the sales reps. The designers and the sales teams should work as a well oiled machine and should communicate often. Let them interact with each other so they can learn to communicate better. Things will become much more efficient.
