    I have been working at Gannett Digital full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Easy going office with good benefits and great employees. Management ensures you have all necessary info to excel at your position and provide all answers needed for clients.

    Cons

    Advancement is vary limited with very loose standards for promotion. Promotion also varies on what markets you handle not on quality of work. Disconnect with upper management and ground level workers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Set strict guidelines and standards for promotion track to make it more clear how and why you will get promoted.

    Pros

    Digital is helping transform a large publishing company into the digital age. Innovation projects are supported by top leadership.

    Cons

    Slower to change because of sheer size. Benefits are not the best but pay and bonus are in line. For digital industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on sharpening up new processes that support a digital workflow. Gannett needs to be lean!

    I have been working at Gannett Digital

    Pros

    A little more forward-thinking than most of its competition. The company isn't afraid of "change" when its for the better. Management listens to concerns, but don't expect much to be done about it.

    Cons

    Too many "managers" and most have very little knowledge about how their products work. Senior management is all white. Design and development teams are very "clique-ish". Innovation is limited. Takes too long to implement product enhancements and new features. Company is quick to spend tons of money on third-party vendors before investing more in building a larger, smarter team of resources leading to overworked employees and limited resources.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Know more about whats going on with teams below you. They could use more focus on "team development" and find a way to get teams to better support one another.

    I have been working at Gannett Digital as a contractor for less than a year

    Pros

    Awesome clients and fun environment, Clients are all fortune five hundred companies, and the structure of employees work well.

    Cons

    Typical on such a big company to have a disconnect or some sort because of the scale of the operation but for a company like this size, it does work with very minimal problem.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    know your people.
