What are perks and other benefits like at Gannett?

Pros

I love working for a company with deep roots in communities across the country. Our teams truly care about the businesses they work with, and our solutions are effective at helping these businesses succeed. Even though it's a large organization, we collaborate across groups, and you can pretty much reach out to anyone and feel helped and supported. There are a lot of great perks from PTO, WFH flexibility, and charitable giving matching.

Cons

Obviously, with the pandemic, it's been tough, but I've felt informed by all levels of leadership throughout.

Advice to Management

Keep focusing on the local businesses we support and supporting employees like you've been doing!

What is the retirement plan like at Gannett?

Pros

First of all, they pay REALLY well. I'm in sales and I have a healthy salary, and awesome commissions, which I have all reached. They have a good 401k program and their health care is nice as well.

Cons

Within the first two weeks that I was there 5 people in my section were let go- through no fault of their own, just "restructuring." That put me on edge and I don't think its a feeling that will ever go away. My coworkers say we should enjoy the salary for as long as we can because pretty soon we will all be gone.

Advice to Management

Management is really pretty good, the only thing that would make this place better was for everyone not to always be scared that they'll be let go, which is something no one can promise.
