Featured Review

Current Employee - Senior Director

I have been working at Gannett full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Good benefits package, competitive salary and plenty of opportunity for advancement. Its values have dramatically improved since the spin from TEGNA.

Cons

Like other newspaper companies, Gannett is fighting the decline to the print newspaper franchise.

Former Employee - Assistant Production Editor

I worked at Penguin Random House full-time for more than a year

Pros

The company culture is great and it feels very much like the company actually cares about its employees.

Cons

Publishing as a whole is a low-pay industry, but it feels extra insulting when working at the top publishing house in the world still doesn't pay you enough to live comfortably in NYC. Many divisions... are run by bad managers that have been with the company for many years and are unwilling to change and adapt to new policies and technologies.
