Gannett is a terrible company. It is not interested in your ideas and has an cold-hearted agenda formed by a small group of corporate snobs that know nothing about the local newspapers.

I was laid off after 13 years. Building a career and a future was just a waste of time there. Company ruined my life.

Used to be the best news organization to work for. Now it is the worst! Your number is up soon if you have not been let go yet. Stay away, no future. I left on my own terms, best decision I ever made. Im now happy and do not dread going to work.

After 9 years I was doing more work and making less money due to unattainable sales goals and not replacing people who either quit or were part of a reduction in force. I watched Gannett lose incredibly talented people due to no pay raises and no appreciation.

Gannett is terrible company to work for if you are elderly and retired. I worked for them almost ten years and they wouldn't give a dime raise. Management sucks so save you're time and look some where else!!

They let so many people go, others left on their own, but none were replaced. I was doing the work of 7 people, and the interim manager, who was not even at my location, was a disgrace. ( I later heard she "enjoys firing people.")
I left and got a better position with a more compassionate company.

I was laid off in November 2016. I had surgery and despite being short term disability, which I thought couldn't lay me off, I was. No respect.

As of Oct. 25, 2017, my position was eliminated. I was given no warning about this. Run away from this place. No raises, more work, and constantly being unappreciated is how they treat their employees.
