A wonderful call center
Trainer (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCJune 20, 2018
Anyone that has worked in a call center will tell you they can be stressful. Gannett truly dose a wonderful job of keeping the stress level as low as possible. Gannett’s management and support staff seem to really care about your success, there are challenges as with any company but I never feel overwhelmed or stressed out. The vacation time and benefits are good and the customers although challenging at times are mostly calling about the same thing. This is a great place to work!!

Nice people
Inserter Operator (Current Employee) –  Fond du Lac, WIJune 15, 2018
Not really a good team oriented company . Over worked and under paid. Don't like to give raises. Don't like that they don't give you any chances to learn something new

Don't work there
Sales Associate (Former Employee) –  Naples FlJune 14, 2018
A terrible place to work. Management shows favoritism to certain sales people and the rest starve. They do not care about their clients at all. A lot of training takes takes you off the street. Must be proficient in Salesforce!

Advertising/Digital Director - The News-Star (Former Employee) –  Monroe, LAMay 31, 2018
I had a very satisfying career with Gannett. They are very forward thinking and manage themselves very well. The overall size of the company allows them to be more cutting edge than most media companies.

Glass Ceiling
Analyst II (Former Employee) –  Phoenix, AZMay 28, 2018
With this company what you put in is what you will get out of it. Apply yourself and seek training and you can advance. Depending on the department the workplace culture changed. Some departments were geared towards a fun environments and some departments were much more sedate. Plenty of training opportunity available in the call centers. Human resources were supportive. Worked long days and had flex time which was appreciated. I had many great managers and some mediocre managers that were still learning how to become great managers. The hardest part of the job was the glass ceiling

Enjoyable and productive
Mailer Assistant (Current Employee) –  Indianapolis, INMay 25, 2018
Productive and fun workplace... I learned how to socialize with people and to disclose to others. The hardest part of the job is because they always have overtime while I have school in the morning, and sometimes I work too much while others are doing nothing.
Pros
variable shifts
Cons
Overtime, Healthcare, no promotion

Working for Gannett-Fleming
Administrative Assistant (Former Employee) –  Ft. Lauderdale, FL.May 24, 2018
The hardest part of the job was working with the other consultants who made more money than you.

The head office is in Pennsylvania and those in Florida are a clique by themselves. The direct managers are so far down on the hierarchy, they are basically at the mercy of people who are out of touch with the situations we face in Florida.

This company was the first I have worked with that each division is charged for their expenses.

it was enjoyable to have decent benefits.
Pros
Decent benefits, health & 401K
Cons
Salary does not match up to what other companies are paying

Wholly out of touch with employees and the community
Account Executive (Former Employee) –  Palm Springs, CAMay 22, 2018
A failing company kept afloat only by continuous layoffs, vapid clickbait, and cringe-inducing boot-lickers who call themselves "sales leaders."

No culture. Awful office environment; no windows, but more than enough corporate imagery and hype on the walls. The bombastic "company values" propaganda wouldn't be as bad if any of it reflected reality.

The level of shadiness among the leadership is alarming. Anything you say will be held against you and your goals. Managers constantly lying about "valuing your time" and "running it like your own business" while sending you on fools errands to drum up small-time deals around town en masse. Double-standards coming from management and corporate is abundant, metamorphosing weekly. Micro-Management and worthless office meetings every day. Daily group readings of sales-related articles eerily similar to the elementary school classroom setting.
Pros
You'll save $50/month on the newspaper since you have to read it every day
Cons
Cons; aptly accused.

Wonderful people to work with
Circulation and Customer Service (Former Employee) –  Saint George, UTMay 16, 2018
I worked with wonderful people. I learned how to problem-solve in a calm and efficient manner. I helped people and developed relationships with customers because they keep us in business. The hardest part of the job was recognizing that the Newspaper business is moving away from the print and onto the internet. The most enjoyable part of the job was discovering how good I was at helping people leave my office satisfied with their service.
Pros
Meeting all of the people, customers, co-workers, reporters, everyone comes together to make a great product
Cons
The newspaper is moving from a print format onto the internet, customers are not happy with that move and not willing to pay for online access

Be careful before accepting the job at this place
Retention Specialist (Current Employee) –  Greenville, SCMay 16, 2018
This company is stressful to work for. The managers take you as a joke and don't to do they jobs. Well there is three supervisors who are great they will do what they have to do to help the next person if they can. They don't promote you only look out for their close friends who has been with the company for 10 plus years. There is nothing to enjoy about this job unless you enjoy being mistreated. They don't give raises.
Pros
Ok Health insurance
Cons
No raises

Not a good place to work unless you know their computer systems that they use because there is absolutely no training at all.
Public Notice Coordinator (Former Employee) –  Green Bay, WIMay 9, 2018
Working at Gannett was very difficult as there was absolutely no training on their computer systems. They expected you to be able to learn their system on your own with no training or help from fellow co-workers or management. The management was quite snippy with me from day 1 until she let me go, saying I have absolutely no computer skills at all and I don't even know how to use email, which was so not true.
Cons
Absolutely no job training for their computer systems.

Was just okay
Machine Operator (Former Employee) –  Appleton, WIMay 7, 2018
Most of the time very few people were working, the same few had to work the whole time while others watched. Worked mostly as a team and helped each other out if needed.
Pros
Paid Breaks if you were able to take one
