I worked at Gannett full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

Over the many years (more than 20) I was able to move into a variety of positions, learning and growing, and getting to be relatively creative.

Cons

Bottom line always took priority over quality and creativity.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Give more consideration to the people who make your company function. Respecting their needs, and finding true ways to motivate and inspire will yield a better, and probably, more profitable company.

    I have been working at Gannett full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits and ongoing training. Challenging work and interesting customers.Top drawer sales staff, marketing and IT.

    Cons

    Elitist managers who are rude, abrasive and micomanage. Bottom line is all that counts so be prepared to produce at all times or be shown the door. Staff is motivated by fear of losing their jobs. . Even when you do everything right you can still be let go (restructuring).
