You have to demonstrate male like characteristics to be promoted. However they do allow flexibility (formal and informal).

Flexibility isn't an issue, but budget is. Don't expect a raise, even if you kick ass at your job.

    Maybe. I don't think any of the issues here are gender-related. There's just poor management across the board, some of which is from female managers.

May 2017

Women and men are treated as complete equals and are promoted based on skill and experience. There are women in leadership positions and the company culture is very welcoming and inclusive.

    It depends on your position, but the hours can be very long and there sometimes isn't much opportunity to work remotely or to have a flexible schedule.

April 2017

Gannett is in a constant flux keeping up with the market and competitors. Prioritization clarity lacking. Career growth path lacking. Never faced disparity due to gender. Though remote workers have to make an extra extra effort to stand out.

April 2017

It's a good place to work, especially the health benefits and maternity leave compared to many other places. However, there aren't many flexible policies as working from home is not encouraged in many departments.

    They are very flexible and accommodating to mothers and fathers. Working from home is common for both genders (parents and child-free, both).

  • Took Maternity Leave Here? (Weeks)

    20 paid / 13 unpaid

    This maternity leave policy may no longer be in affect after the company was purchased by Nikkei (sale closed Dec 2015). The UK statutory maternity pay kicks in after the 20 weeks of paid leave from the employer. That lasts for 19 weeks. Then there were 13 weeks of unpaid leave

Not a great place to advance as a woman. Difficult to hobnob with the bosses, who are all men.
