    I have been working at Gannett Media Technologies International full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You will gain vast exposure to the print production process and become very familiar with utilizing tools such as InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat in a fast paced environment.

    Cons

    Not very easy to have a social life with the typical work hours.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    We are aware that we, the Imaging and Print Production specialists, are a strong contributor to Gannett's recent profitability. It would be nice if you would share some of that profit with the ones who are actually working for it.

    Working at GMTI = Modern-Day Slavery

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Work/Life Balance
    • Senior Management
    • Career Opportunities
    Former Employee - Product Developer in Norfolk, VA
    Former Employee - Product Developer in Norfolk, VA

    I worked at Gannett Media Technologies International

    Pros

    - I definitely learned a lot while working at GMTI
    - Average Benefit package: 14 vacation days + health insurance + 401k

    Cons

    - No opportunities for professional growth at all.
    - No opportunities for career advancement: Within the Dev department, they have entry, junior(2-3 years experience) and then senior. If they have enough senior developers, they will never promote you to senior.
    - The pay is extremely mediocre, way below the median.
    - $500 bonus (This is Modern-Day Slavery). Only management get big bonuses by the end of the year.
    - Most developers put insane hours of work per week and NEVER get that time back.
    - There is no transparency in the company.
    - The only time you will get management attention is when you make a mistake.
    - There is no Recognition or praise when doing a good job
    - Poor Leadership abilities of Senior management: Most employees/management are ex-military and unfortunately they are running the company that way.
    - There is no employer support in balancing between work life and personal life
    - Promotions are barely given: If they "Promote" you, they will mainly do it for political reasons
    - There is no respect shown by Director of development toward employees

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tech companies should never be run by working employees to death. This is the reason GMTI has been loosing talented people all these years.

    Pros

    Insanely flexible part time hours. Decent hourly if you're lucky with QA.

    Cons

    Weak pay structure if you're unlucky with QA. Only Part time. Constantly in Queue.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Relook at your incentive structures.

    Former Employee - Dock Supervisor in Clarksville, TN
    Former Employee - Dock Supervisor in Clarksville, TN

    I worked at Gannett Media Technologies International

    Pros

    Will hire anyone that will take the job. I was desperate and should have known better from what I saw during the interview.

    Cons

    Expect you to come to work early (an hour) and stay late (an hour or two) and clock in and out at the correct time so that they don't have to pay you for the extra 2 or 3 hours a day. Harassment by upper level supervisors, including yelling, cursing, threats.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean house and hire all new management.

    nice co-workers, laid back for a newspaper

    Former Employee - Metro Reporter in Parsippany, NJ
    Former Employee - Metro Reporter in Parsippany, NJ

    I worked at Gannett Media Technologies International

    Pros

    I really enjoyed my co-workers at Gannett -- everyone was down-to-earth and easy to work with in doing joint stories, etc. All the reporters would help each other out with news tips and contacts and the editors showed their human side.

    Cons

    The salaries were pretty low ($36K for first year reporter), and sometimes you felt a kind-of beaten-down energy from editors who had worked there for about 20 years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the collaborative spirit amongst employees

    Pros

    The people are nice and willing to share their expertice.

    Cons

    Layoffs every quarter. Constant doom-and-gloom meetings about the state of the newspsper industry. Management values quantity over quality. Writing stories about advertisers simply because they are advertisers. Journalistic ethics are constantly decaying.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Offer readers a product that includes informative unbiased news, sports and entertainment.

    A great place to work

    Current Employee - Something of Everything in Norfolk, VA
    Current Employee - Something of Everything in Norfolk, VA

    I have been working at Gannett Media Technologies International

    Pros

    The work is very interesting. There is a lot to learn on a daily basis about technology, content, business, etc. Employees can readily see the results of their work by looking at most of the Gannett web sites. My colleagues are very dedicated to the company and passionate about what they are doing. Everyone is very smart and friendly. Most people have been working together for several years, so there's a deep sense of familiarity and loyalty.

    Cons

    There is no lunchroom in the building. The building is in a flood zone and all the surrounding streets flood whenever there's a heavy rain.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to provide opportunities for learning and skill set improvement.

    Newspaper Production Management

    Former Employee - Transportation Director
    Former Employee - Transportation Director

    I worked at Gannett Media Technologies International

    Pros

    Newspapers are an exciting industry, with each day different than the one before. It can be challenging, and deadline driven, which some people succeed in.

    Cons

    Simply put, it's a dying industry. It's in a perpetual state of contraction, cutbacks, layoffs, etc., and it is tough to be optimistic. It is in the twilight of it's days, and that is sad.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I know the newspaper section is in decline, but it should try it's best to interact with the employees in the production end. Understandably, editorial drives the bus, but production does need some say in matters.
