I have been working at Gannett

Pros

It's a great station, good culture, hard working people. The newsroom folks work very hard and have a good time doing it.

Cons

Too many name changes, the brand changes too much.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stick with the brand you have now for longer than two years.

    Pros

    Good money while I was there but not so much anymore. Job itself was enjoyable.

    Cons

    Hideous treatment of employees. Constant browbeating over ridiculously petty procedures. Management hopelessly mired in meeting after meeting accomplishing nothing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hold management to uniform professional standards and stop playing favorites.

    Not bankrupt

    Cons

    Dysfunctional corporate culture often pits manager against manager
    Innovation from the ground up is discouraged
    Large, overly bureaucratic organization
    Poor communication at all levels

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Empower employees to innovate. Give them the time, resources and training to develop their own ideas, especially in digital. Encourage bottom-up solutions.
