      Pros

      Nice company to work for, great work-life balance within my department. Management treated you like an adult, very understanding and communicated very well while going through Covid. A lot of opportunities to take initiative on workflow, policies and procedures within our department. Great resources provided with working remote.

      Cons

      Position was outsourced due to merger with Gatehouse Media.

      A solid business and team

      Mar 18, 2021 - Branded Content Director in New York, NY
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Gannett continues to grow an award winning branded content team with positive growth, strong leadership and talented executers. COVID has been a challenge for many, but since the team spans across the nation, the WFH transition was fairly seamless. Additionally, Gannett offers above average benefits and (I feel) a good work/life balance.

      Cons

      Because Gannett is a large company, it is often trying to solve many challenges (internally and externally) with one-size fits all solutions - I assume many companies of this size struggle in this department. Mainly, I think it could be a little more competitive with compensation specifically in competitive markets (but once again, Gannett spans across the entire US with a large majority of it's properties residing in less competitive markets).
