I worked at Gannett full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Good colleagues, benefits, and flexibility

Cons

Outdated technology - they're chasing innovators. When I was there, they were heavy in legacy Senior Executives who were untouchable.

    Pros

    At one time, smaller Gannett papers throughout the Midwest offered beginning journalists a place to work that was better than most other small newspapers. That was many years ago.

    Cons

    Expect to be worked nearly to death -- that has always been the case with Gannett. Good managers have retired or been driven out. If you're starting out, or otherwise, don't expect to have many opportunities to learn from more experienced people or to do your best work. Gannett froze its pension plan in, I think, 2007. It makes its health plan stingier every year.

    Advice to Management

    Ratchet down the pay of corporate functionaries raking in millions of dollars a year and, for God's sake, invest in your workers for a change.
