    Pros

    Pay is low, but reasonable given the state of the industry.

    Cons

    Where do I begin? You are an FTE, you fill a hole, the company doesn't see much more than that.

    Pros

    easy work for $13.00/hr, bonuses and raises are offered but are hard to come by.

    Cons

    Toxic work enviroment created by management of the Call Center.

    Advice to Management

    Since management in 2012 the call center is at an all time low in moral.

    Pros

    Gannett has centralized its page design work to five locations throughout the US and each of these hubs is responsible for the design of newspapers in their regions. The work is diverse and covers a good range of small weekly and major metro daily newspapers. The atmosphere is fun, collaborative and creative.

    Cons

    It's print journalism in the US and everyone is expected to do more with less. The work can also be high stress at times.

  7. It was a friendly environment and respected there employees.

    Pros

    Pays well, easy commission dollars, and many positions all over the u.s.

    Cons

    Everything you do is on a scoring level, from retention calls, handle time, and even attendance. And the upper management does not allow time for meetings so you won't know how well you are doing until things get bad or if you get a perfect score and they announce it. The management team is very low standard and the HR department does not accurately give you info on benefits, time off, etc. I was let go because I was given wrong information about my time off even though I kept asking about it in advance and was told by one HR rep I was ok until I came in to work and my desk was cleaned out.

    Advice to Management

    Make more time for meetings, allow more leniency for attendance, and open another call center to help bring the call volume and hold time down.

  9. Ship going down, management in full on panic.

    Pros

    Lots of employees still giving it their all.

    Cons

    Staff levels have already fallen below minimum needed for company to continue operations with decent quality; management either does not realize this or, more likely, does not care.

    After spending last two years trying and failing to become an internet company, company is now trying to become a TV only company; do NOT work for any of the newspapers, they are just being stripmined for the advertising revenue that is left.
