    Don't do it. You will feel trapped after 2 weeks of doing worth that builds no revenue or even gets seen.

    I have been working at Gannett as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Casual work space. Some friendly people if they are not in a click. Typical corporate environment.

    Cons

    They lie to you when you interview saying people just never leave once they get in their job, they love it so much. then I find out many left and the horror stories that went with them. There is no direction or communication so your job may be cut because nothing is being communicated to be done. You get questioned for asking questions. 3 months of working there and nobody sees the prototypes created to sell the company, a company that seems to be going down hill fast but they are holding on with a life preserver. It is a sweat shop basically.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To the VP who started the new advertising section. You should learn to respect your employees and contractors. There is a reason people don't stay or job hunted during the day with down time.

    I worked at Gannett full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great experience to list on resume from a nationally recognized company in the media industry.

    Cons

    Management seemed clueless at times, tends to talk down to employees, and are quick to through employees under the bus with clients never taking responsibility for their own mistakes. Furloughs and layoffs expected on a yearly basis by employees. 6 employees resigned or left advertising department within a one month span!!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are wondering why your revenue numbers have taken such a drastic hit in the print media advertising department TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT YOUR SUPERVISORY AND MANAGEMENT STAFF!!!!
