    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 Management

    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.

    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 Management

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

    CBS Outdoor treats their employees very well, and if you are in sales it's a good place to be.

    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 Management

    Spread out accounts more evenly and provide more support.


  6. Good company to develop in and would be a good idea for anyone early in their career.

    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 Management

    Keep trusting your gut and not fall into traditional outdated management techniques.

    Management is constantly watching you, you have assigned lunches, and have to sign in and out of the office every day.

    Give more respect and rewards to support Staff.

    Pros

    Competitive base salary and good benefits. Sales people have a lot of flexibility and freedom as long as you perform.

    You must be driven and aggressive. It's kind of like a never ending sprint, it gets old.

    Advice to Management

    Need to throw a bone out there once in a while.
