    I have been working at Gannett full-time (More than 10 years)

    Gannett provides many training and development opportunities and options for staff who want to evolve as the company/industry does.

    Not ideal company if you are looking for lifetime employment.

    I worked at Gannett full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great culture and brand. A lot of opportunity to work on interesting campaigns across a broad swath of categories. Digital continues to grow to compensate for the death of print.

    Cons

    The industry challenges are particularly relevant given a key driver of their business is print sales. With circulation down, it's tough to support the overall business.

    Advice to Management

    Keep investing in the brand and push for ways to lean in to your digital business. This means building up programmatic, video and social.

    Great training and resources available. They understand the digital landscape and thoroughly communicate to the staff how to leverage their strengths.

    I worked at Gannett full-time

    Pros

    It's a large company with plenty of opportunities throughout the United States. It's open to trying new approaches to grow its digital and social media audience.

    Cons

    The company has a somewhat scatter-brain approach to trying new ways to grow its audience. This can be frustrating to employees who are constantly switching gears or learning new programs.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize that each newspaper market is different and make adjustments accordingly. Stick to a new program, and if it doesn't work, then try something new.
