    I worked at Raycom full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Midsize stations in many locations. Lots of opportunity for advancement for those that want to move up within the company. Decent benefits, good base for AE's to get started before they switch over to 100% commission. The company is embracing multi platform selling and non traditional avenues of income. Very strong digital presence. Commissions are good.

    Cons

    Because they are really good in certain markets the air time is bought up by national accounts. Can be difficult to get new local business on due to high rates, makes it hard for small businesses to afford. They do not have stations in large markets.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    As in most companies, lots of different personalities in management. Communication can get muddled at times (different signals). Overall a good company to work for if you are willing to work hard.
