    I have been working at Gannett full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    We work in a progressive newsroom that is flexible when it comes to working from home or taking time off. Great for parents or other caregivers who need a flexible schedule.

    The constantly changing priorities are frustrating. There is sometimes a lack of management, feedback and direction. Layoffs are often a concern.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate! This is so important. I would love to have one-on-ones and regular emails with my supervisor and executive editor.

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

    Pros

    Close to the mall, great lunch options. Hours are favorable. Relaxed dress code. If... you hit goal, pay is okay.

    Cons

    When the majority of you pay is tied to newspaper advertising, success is limited. Management is live in the (print) past. They will put you on PIP's for asinine reasons. The training is less than favorable and help is scarce once you're in the role.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, don't be scared of new ideas
