Excellent opportunity to learn, but keep your resume up-to-date.

I have been working at Gannett

ProsOpportunities for personal and technical training were good.
Ability to get involved in cross-division projects and expand your exposure.

ConsBenefits were good although costs were high for health and continued to rise and management always offset costs to employees.
Very political environment.
Very financially structured. The almighty buck is the only motivator in the company.
Be good or be gone, Gannett is and has been downsizing for some time and no job is secure.
Promotions are based more on how you are needed than what you deserve. I have seen them over and over promote people into positions they were not ready for and fire them once they failed.

Advice to Senior ManagementHave more respect for your employees and the hard work they do for you. Recognize good employees at all levels, not just senior management.

Pros: It's a company that tends to be more focused on journalism per se...and that tends to keep things professional and steady, not too focused on… Cons: Gannett's operations may be focused on journalism, but it tends to be a rather light, less consequential focus. It's brand of journalism is very much… Advice to Senior Management: Focus on the long-term. Don't manage for the next quarter,… More
