    I have been working at Gannett full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I say this in total honesty - this is the job I've been looking for. Management is caring and understanding. They help you every step of the way when you need it. The training programs they have get you to where you want to be in your career. Gannett is a very open environment that's laid back and comfortable. I'd recommend working here if you have the chance.

    Cons

    I only have two real picks, and they're not huge at all. The bathrooms are way too small for how many people work here. Also, the water machines are awful. Other than that, no complaints.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing. You're all great coaches and you keep doing great every day.

    Depends - we are in a transformation. Things move fast and there is a lot of change! Know yourself and if you are up for the challenge.

    Advice to Management

    Know your talent. Keep taking risks and allow your teams to do the same - we are designing the future.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time

    Pros

    First of all, they pay REALLY well. I'm in sales and I have a healthy salary, and awesome commissions, which I have all reached. They have a good 401k program and their health care is nice as well.

    Cons

    Within the first two weeks that I was there 5 people in my section were let go- through no fault of their own, just "restructuring." That put me on edge and I don't think its a feeling that will ever go away. My coworkers say we should enjoy the salary for as long as we can because pretty soon we will all be gone.

    Advice to Management

    Management is really pretty good, the only thing that would make this place better was for everyone not to always be scared that they'll be let go, which is something no one can promise.

    Management is great, coworkers are great. Corporate layoffs are not.

    Pros

    Love how my teammates and I work together to create the best work product and environment. Editors are supportive while giving you freedom to explore.

    Cons

    Network is spread out which means less face-to-face time, but digitally very connected to compensate

    Advice to Management

    Adjust/adapt/strategy should be true to bottom - up, rather than top-down.
