    No opinion of CEO

    Dysfunctional corporate management. Dying industry. No unifying vision from the editor on down.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know what advice to give you because of larger industry concerns and the problems with Gannett management.

    Pros

    Very energetic workforce with a wonderful in-house gym.

    Cons

    USA Today in the past three years has seen layoffs and unpaid furlough weeks. Those who work on the news website face last-minute schedule changes, very irregular work shifts for newsroom employees.
