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

Pros

Hours at corporate aren't too bad and can be flexible when needed.
People were generally easy to work with and willing to contribute to get things done.
Facilities at McLean are very nice.

Cons

Newspaper business is hurting, which impacts everyone, regardless of individual performance.
There are a few people that don't pull their weight and will be there forever.
Furloughs for everyone are the right decision, but still hurt when you are doing well.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Find a way to reward individual contributors and weed out some of those who may not be pulling their weight.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    GannettLocal has undergone a complete overhaul in the past year. New management, new sales team, new vision and goals.

    - Fun environment with a lot of young sales professionals
    - Monthly sales contests that make it possible to make a lot of money through spiffs
    - Solid starting salary plus unlimited potential for commission with a tiered structure
    - Driven management team with a clear vision for growth in mind
    - Backing of Gannett, giving immediate credibility to our division
    - Agency feel within a very large company

    Cons

    - Still behind in terms of providing solid sales tools in terms of current client proof of performance, case studies, etc.
    - Technology and equipment is outdated (computers, phones, chairs, etc.)
    - Massive growth divided teams between three separate offices making it difficult to build a consistent culture

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to work towards providing sales teams with more tools to make the sale easier
