Very Proud

Sales (Current Employee)

ProsGatehouse is a forward thinking company. Gatehouse is constantly exploring any opportunity to grow revenue and increase advertiser reach which in turn strengthens the bond between the advertiser and newspaper. The newspapers that are forward thinking are very successful and generally have high morale.

ConsOld school backward thinking publishers and their staffs. They are at best not open to new ideas and at worst closed minded. If something has any change involved, it is a bad thing. I believe this is not unique to Gatehouse, but it doesn't make their attitudes any less disappointing. Luckily, senior management at Gatehouse understands and rewards those who do the tough things, think and work outside the box.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep up the good fight! Understand that sour grapes are not being consumed by all of your employees. Some understand that nothing good ever came without a fight and hard work. You have the support of the employees that are willing to fight along with you. And finally, thank you, I will be making my mortgage payment this month. I understand that my employment is a privilege, not a right.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
