Advice to ManagementAdvice

Value your support staff - they're the ones who are on the ground and keeping your company moving day-to-day
Trim the fat - this company is way too top heavy with executives who are more concerned with protecting their turf than with growing the company and changing with the times
Stop wasting money on Town Halls and the embarrassing Upfront and motivational materials and
Upgrade IT and infrastructure

    I worked at Gannett as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Great learning environment, exciting and fun opportunities

    The minimum required hours for this job was 15/week, often put in more... although since the job was enjoyable, it was never an imposition
