    Not really up to date in many ways, but then again, the technology of outdoor isn't exactly cutting edge is it?

    I worked at CBS Outdoor full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Established company with good name. Lots of experienced people to draw from. Good pay for the top tier/established folks. They clearly spell out all requirements for the job. Some of the young salespeople are totally rock stars and they are very impressive people to work with.

    Cons

    You're on your own here if you're in sales -- no sales support people, no real help when it comes to CRMs or any other technological innovations (from 1999). The LA location was not the warmest bunch of salespeople on the planet. Every new person is treated as an interloper and potential competitor and is made to feel like they're an island unto themselves. Don't expect much in the way of training -- just go sell. You'll make some mistakes having to learn the products on your own, but most won't be fatal. Watch for massive overlap in cold calls (which you'll be doing a TON of) because the company refuses to use any kind of tracking/CRM system to let you know that the person you're calling as a new rep has been contacted 900 times before you have called -- or that they're already the client of an existing rep. You WILL upset people, and for some reason, management thinks that means you're doing your job, even if clients are perturbed by it. Plus, in a market as big as LA, good luck finding business that hasn't been mined six ways to Sunday already. The big dog salespeople take all the air out of the market well before you arrive.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get into the 21st century with the CRM possibilities and training for new reps. You don't need to hold the sales people's hands, but you should set them up with all the best tools to help them succeed instead of just throwing them in the deep end without some support.
