Fantastic company to work for

Account Manager (Current Employee)
Atlanta, GA

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

Proscompetitive base salary, which is tied to experience, strong opportunity, fantastic leadership

ConsThe position is fairly turnkey - sales, artwork management and receivables when clients get in arears. You receive assistance with customer service when you reach a certain volume, but it is a tough curve to surmount when you are at the cusp -- other reps who have been here awhile have assistance, but you are doing everything and when the volume gets high, it's intense.

Advice to Senior ManagementSimplify sales materials and stop changing them so frequently. There is a lack of cohesiveness, because of constant changes. Also the website and email marketing program are archaic compared to other options in the marketplace. Improving options here will go a long way in competing with others in the marketplace, and internet marketing is the number one most important thing a small business can do to be successful.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

Don't allow your staff… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More

This is a horrible place to work

Pros: There aren't any pros for working at this company. Cons: Commission structure stinks and the management doesn't want to reward… Advice to Senior Management: Don't try to punish your sales people for exceeding their sales goals.
