    Pros

    Being a reporter is generally fun and socially rewarding.

    Cons

    Gannett is run by greedy, uncreative, scumbags who would sell their mothers to keep stock prices up.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying people off and be happy with the profits. Even if they are declining, we know that newspapers average 16 percent profit margin - and Gannett certainly makes more than that.

    Pros

    The is a great place to hone your design skills and work on getting some general resume fluff.

    Cons

    The digital design department (artist in particular) are severally mistreated and under payed. We are constantly told we are the money makers and future of the company but without any respect, recognition or compensation. We are a "growing department" and this means that we have been working 15-20hours of mandatory overtime for since February.

    Advice to Management

    We have lost almost 15-20% of our employees to firing or quitting in the last 6 months. If u want to keep employees grant their time off request and don't work them to death. Also communication with mgmnt is practically nonexistent.
