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

Pros

There aren't any pros for working at this company.

Cons

Commission structure stinks and the management doesn't want to reward you for doing your job.

Advice to Management

Don't try to punish your sales people for exceeding their sales goals. You should be happy that you have to pay them more commission than you had anticipated. This is a win win.

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

    Pros

    competitive base salary, which is tied to experience, strong opportunity, fantastic leadership

    Cons

    The position is fairly turnkey - sales, artwork management and receivables when clients get in arears. You receive assistance with customer service when you reach a certain volume, but it is a tough curve to surmount when you are at the cusp -- other reps who have been here awhile have assistance, but you are doing everything and when the volume gets high, it's intense.

    Advice to Management

    Simplify sales materials and stop changing them so frequently. There is a lack of cohesiveness, because of constant changes. Also the website and email marketing program are archaic compared to other options in the marketplace. Improving options here will go a long way in competing with others in the marketplace, and internet marketing is the number one most important thing a small business can do to be successful.
