I have been working at Gannett full-time (Less than a year)

Pros

Large company so there's plenty of opportunity for advancement. My department provides me an opportunity to develop new initiatives and set independent goals for myself and my team. Plenty of autonomy

Cons

A 100 year old company so there are many employees unwilling to move into the digital age. Slow movement but change takes longer for some. Health insurance is quite awful

Advice to Management

Not much to complain about, I enjoy working for the company.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Good coworkers and lower level management

    Cons

    No opportunity to make more money. We were told that if we take on more work and responsibility we could get raises, then after a glowing review I was told that the company simply "Doesn't have the money for raises." They have enough though to pay the people at the top MILLIONS of dollars.

    Advice to Management

    Give raises to hard working people, and be honest about promotions and raises.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Photojournalism and a branching out into video and social media. As a photographer they are now tasking us with all forms of digital media which is pretty cool.

    Cons

    pay. the pay is not very high at smaller circulation papers and there is the top down corporate environment to deal with that is stifling to creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Produce and compete. enter contests and develop and implement online plans and you will be noticed and advanced.
