    Pros

    They take what they do very seriously, and it shows by the amount of training every employee is given, but they still provide a fun and open environment. Generally, the people that work there are very nice and considerate. A good amount of information is provided on what direction the company is moving in and what decisions they are making. This company is currently making sweeping changes that seem very positive for its growth and its employees' quality of work. It's an easy transition to begin working at this company out of college.

    Cons

    Due to the media research they do, the hours can be terrible and many jobs are required to work nights. Overachieving employees can take on the brunt of the work, but are not benefited with greater compensation. Compensation in general isn't very good. It's clear some managers have been put in their position simply because they have moved up the chain over the years, not because they were the right choice for the job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Overall, this is a great company to work for and it's really fun to come in every day. However, there seems to be a lack of communication and understanding sometimes between upper management and the people collecting information, in terms of how tedious some tasks are and the core requirements. Also, employees shouldn't be hired as managers in certain jobs because they have worked there for a considerable amount of time; employees should be promoted to managers because they are capable of managing a team. Managers need to be proactive in helping their team members take the necessary steps to further their career. They need to be clear and confident communicators that instill that confidence in their team members.
