I worked at Gannett full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Very nice building (cafeteria, gym, parking, Tysons)

Cons

Morale was at all time low. Senior mgt and Executive mgt truly do not care about the employees. Very short term thinking with resources. No investment into the future and strategic direction changes continually.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Do the little things for employees. Care. Listen to staff. Don't just cut cut cut cut.

Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    co-workers are nice. Got lots of event tickets.

    Cons

    to much middle managers that don't know what they are doing and making to much money. Give no leadership and just turn and burn employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Here in Phoenix you need to get rid of most of the middle management as well as a few VPs.

  2.  

    Micromanaged workplace with few resources, high stress, unmanageable workloads and unrealistic expectations.

    I worked at Gannett full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great place to start a career and gain experience.

    Cons

    Corporate demands deeper and deeper cuts to maximize their shareholder's profits and CEO's bonuses. No job security. Constant demands to do more with less.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer better pay and decent health insurance.
