I worked at Gannett full-time (More than a year)

Pros

If you find a right position for you, there is room for growth and movement between departments and divisions. Many people I met worked there 10-20 years. The company offers some cutting-edge opportunities in digital media.

Cons

The company is cutting costs aggressively on all fronts so the quality of benefits has deteriorated. Your job might be unstable as the company seems to go through an organizational change about once a year.

Advice to Management

Please pay attention to your employees' work/life balance issues. Many people I worked with were burning out on projects, a couple even had to go on medical leave because of that. Happy employees are productive employees.

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

    Pros

    Other than benefits, no real reason to work in this industry. They claim to be forward thinking and expanding their scope but have not.

    Cons

    Management very rude and non-responsive. Interviews go well and then they do not communicate for 10 days. They leave you in the dark.
