I have been working at Gannett full-time

Pros

For a media company they are definitely looking towards the future and acquiring many new and cutting edge business partners.

Cons

Constant changing of "strategy". We go through initiative after initiative that are completely different.

Advice to Management

Support staff helps the sales staff exceed goals by more than their compensation.

    I worked at Gannett full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You are given more than 3 weeks of vacation, sick time, etc. which is pretty nice. Meetings every week to go over numbers and whatever has changed in that week. Consistent hours for the most part, but overtime is always likely around the holidays. This is a good place to start if you are just getting into the design field. But do not get stuck, there are many more places that are better for what you want to do.

    Cons

    Not much recognition for all you do. Unrealistic expectations for designers. You are not payed enough for all you deal with. The hours can be a challenge...with morning, mid, and night shifts. The company doesn't appreciate you as much as they should. You get reprimanded for the tiniest of errors.

    Advice to Management

    Appreciate your designers more, they are the core of what you do. A pay increase would be beneficial for all the crap that they put up with. 3-5 page real estate ads as well as other horrible lengthy ads are not easy...at all, take that into consideration when questioning the ads per hour.
