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

Pros

The company is currently in a state of technological Rennaissance. They have been very open and amenable to technology shifts and advancements, and their opportunities and projects all reflect that. This is commendable for an otherwise very conservative industry.

Cons

Limited security - our team was subjected to the whims of internal politics, little effort to connect the work of our satellite office to what headquarters was doing

Advice to Management

Change is okay as long as there is transparency, there were a lot of clandestine decisions that impacted our team that were not revealed until long after they affected us.

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

    Pros

    If you do your job well within the company, it is a fairly secure position. Now that they have made so many cut backs,.the positions they have left are essential employees.

    Cons

    They are constantly revising their direction that they want to go. Instead of focusing on current products and making it good, they look for new products way too often and the core products get neglected. Even on core products, sometimes I think management make changes in order to justify their job.

    Advice to Management

    Stop getting distracted by the shiny object and tend to the business at hand. Get it right before you move on to something else.

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

    Pros

    Looks good on a resume.

    Cons

    Awful management and overall communication. My department is constantly treated like second class citizens. No respect whatsoever. Unrealistic expectations. No compensation for going above and beyond. Raises are unheard of. Awful hours. They fire people and then require mandatory overtime from those who stick around.

    Advice to Management

    Come to the realization that you need your employees more than they need you.
