    Current Intern - Office/Game-Day Intern in Baton Rouge, LA

    I have been working at CBS Outdoor as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Working with LSU Sports Properties as an intern has provided me with a lot of experience in the sports industry. I've learned so many new things to help me through a career in sports such as working on recaps and working with sponsors.

    Cons

    The biggest challenge for me was putting aside my thoughts of how others were working and just getting through my work in the best way possible.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Interact more with interns.

    I worked at CBS Outdoor full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Exceptional leadership provided by management. Laid back environment at the office, and every employee knows one another like a family member. That experience was so amazing because of the people who run and work in that office.

    Cons

    Limited inventory of billboard locations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work and thank you for giving me the opportunity to work with such a great group of individuals. Thanks also for spending the extra time outside of work to try to help me succeed.

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

    Pros

    Excellent group to work with and provides you a very good sense of other business environments. Your ability to understand the market place provides you a solid foundation for success. If you are not curious of business in general, you may have a hard time speaking to potential clients.

    Cons

    Possible to outgrow position fairly quickly and rare horizontal movement between CBS corporation

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep trusting your gut and not fall into traditional outdated management techniques.

    Pros

    Great benefits, good work/life balance. Good managers and good company culture.

    Cons

    Very focused on the sales staff, if you are not in sales it is easy to feel undervalued. If you are in Sales be prepared for a lot of pressure. There is definitely favoritism in what AEs handle what accounts. It can be very difficult to work your way to the top.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spread out accounts more evenly and provide more support.

    I worked at CBS Outdoor

    Pros

    Flexible hours, there are many things and people to learn and know. Every day is different, so you don't get bored. It's a great learning experience if you want to start a service business after ward.

    Cons

    Salary was not bad but could be better. That is a key position and was not paid as it should.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Compensation programs need to be revised and the salary for Puerto Rico employees need to be more balanced compared to other locations.

    I worked at CBS Outdoor full-time

    Pros

    Experienced sales team is great to learn from and confident enough to have a good sense of humor in the process. Help is always available and asking for it is never scrutinized. Do the job right or not at all.

    Cons

    Highly corporate, no overtime, strict dress code even for assistants. Be prepared for logistical changes on the fly as departments clash over details.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training could have been more hands on, but keeping contact lines open and friendly helps make up for that a bit.
