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

Pros

Had a lot of opportunities to do interesting things, meet interesting people, cover interesting stories.
Decent training. Management in newsroom was hit or miss, but co-workers were a great bunch.
Gannett is a big company. While that may be a negative for some, I found it a positive because they had set policies on sick time, overtime, vacation time, etc. The previous small company I worked for played very fast and loose with these items.

Cons

Some manager are quite good. Some not so much. Concern about the future of newspapers in general is rampant in the newsroom.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work to build better employee-management communication.
