    I worked at the tennessean full-time

    Pros

    Lots of great, dedicated people. Good opportunity to learn if you really push for it. Strong advocate for community. Decent benefits

    Cons

    Industry is in disarray. Focus and priority is getting info online so quickly that too much of it is erroneous or error-filled. Cost-cutting measures, though needed, have sacrificed product.

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't really want advice. Gannett doesn't seem to operate that way.
