I have been working at Gannett full-time

Pros

Gannett's Digital division has a great culture (startup feel) and provides a great working environment where most employees opinion or idea regardless of title is valued. Great place to learn and gain industry expertise very quickly. Bright individuals with creative ideas.

Cons

inadequate bennies, communication from leadership to front line is not consistent

Advice to Management

share overall vision of company and division respectively. This will give employees a sense of ownership and working towards accomplishment.

    Pros

    Work from home, good product that works for your customers. You don't often have to interact with management, but if you do, don't expect a shred of help.

    Cons

    They truly are not looking for the best or the brightest. They want worker slaves. Management in name only. sales meetings are a pure joke. Beating your fingernails with a hammer is far more pleasurable. Actually had a manager tell the staff that he does not welcome new ideas. He only wants those that have been tried in other markets so that he won't get blamed if they fail. If you come to either manager with an issue they will respond by telling you their issues and how much bigger they are than yours. Listening is not an option for them.

    Advice to Management

    Take some 100 level management classes. It will be a vast improvement.
