I have been working at Gannett as a contractor (Less than a year)

Pros

Awesome clients and fun environment, Clients are all fortune five hundred companies, and the structure of employees work well.

Cons

Typical on such a big company to have a disconnect or some sort because of the scale of the operation but for a company like this size, it does work with very minimal problem.

Advice to Management

know your people.

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

    Pros

    There is a definite opportunity to make a lot of money in the Sales Executive Role.
    The ability to share ideas across properties is a great benefit.

    Cons

    In my experience, few managers have had the skills and qualities needed to encourage and support sales staff. Apathy from managers has added greatly to a frustrated, burnt out, and negative environment.
    Company changed Health Care Benefits greatly in 2013 in response to ACA that really disadvantaged employees with families. This has also added to the extremely negative work environment and I am sure will spike turn-over.

    Advice to Management

    I wouldn't even know where to start.

    Pros

    Local efforts are positive with employees doing the best they can with limited resources.

    Cons

    Staffs have been slashed by corporate in order to keep profits high. Local newsrooms are not adequately staffed to cover their communities. Corporate initiatives do not always align with local markets. Initiatives are pushed through even when there is clear signs of failure. Consolidation of local papers into regional publications is obvious, but corporate is drawing out the process in hopes no one will notice. Layoffs happen regularly and without warning and are no longer announced on a corporate level and are conducted site by site without explanation.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your local staffs to keep product quality high. If regional/state publications are the goal then just do it instead of drawing it out, readers are onto that tact. Stop hiring endless strings of VPs and marketing managers who only market themselves and never discuss the company in any interviews.
