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

Pros

The pay is good; The building and building amenities are very nice.

Cons

Cold people. Terrible organizational structure. Minimal benefits, holidays and time off. High pressure.

Advice to Management

Restructure and get some good, workable communication process. Offer your employees more benefits and holidays - these things go a long way for people that work extra hard. Productivity will not suffer by giving Friday after Thanksgiving and Federal holidays - we work in the DC/NoVA area - people have families and using vacation for some of these things that are so easy to give is not fair.

    I worked at Gannett full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Over the many years (more than 20) I was able to move into a variety of positions, learning and growing, and getting to be relatively creative.

    Cons

    Bottom line always took priority over quality and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Give more consideration to the people who make your company function. Respecting their needs, and finding true ways to motivate and inspire will yield a better, and probably, more profitable company.


  2. "Just an OK company"
