I worked at Gannett full-time (more than 5 years)Pros
Good People, no more "boys club" atmosphere, ability to move up. Great benefits, good management, zero tolerance for harassment, great HR.Cons
Is paper media dying? I think a lot of the worry in a job is how the future is going to shape it. When I worked there I constantly felt like there was an ambiance of "the sky is falling" over the lack of paper sales, and management could share ideas earlier to keep employees focused on work and less worried for job security.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Share the sentiment that newspapers still have a lot of life to give if that's what you feel. Tell it to the people you manage.RecommendsNeutral OutlookNo opinion of CEO

I had one phone interview and two interviews on site. The first team of interviewers did not ask many questions, and I found myself trying to 'lead' the interview. The second person who I interviewed with seemed as if I was wasting his time. It wasn't a pleasant experience.Interview Questions
