I have been working at GannettPros
There is a ton of opportunity to define the future of the company. Obviously Gannett is going through a major transition and there is a huge cultural shift taking place across the organization. If you prove your value, your voice will be heard, and I'm sure that sounds crazy for company veterans but it has been the case in my experience. Interesting business dynamics and strong focus on the financials and performance.Cons
Ready, fire, aim approach can be disconcerting. Strategically, Sr Leadership must plot out a roadmap and stick to it instead of reacting and chasing numbers. Need to revise the comp plan to incentivize the right behavior.Advice to ManagementAdvice
If you would like the company to survive and evolve, you must bring in the right people and give them latitude to take risks and create new opportunities and revenue streams.RecommendsPositive OutlookNo opinion of CEO
