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.

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

    Pros

    Had a lot of opportunities to do interesting things, meet interesting people, cover interesting stories.
    Decent training. Management in newsroom was hit or miss, but co-workers were a great bunch.
    Gannett is a big company. While that may be a negative for some, I found it a positive because they had set policies on sick time, overtime, vacation time, etc. The previous small company I worked for played very fast and loose with these items.

    Cons

    Some manager are quite good. Some not so much. Concern about the future of newspapers in general is rampant in the newsroom.

    Advice to Management

    Work to build better employee-management communication.
