    Pros

    Good benefits. Presidents Club is an awesome reward.

    Cons

    Upper management is clueless. Products are rolled out without being fully tested. Technology is far behind which is hard to believe considering the size of the company. Management by intimidation. Culture encourages you to report bad behavior. Beware if you do, you'll suffer retaliation. Best advice: train here, then go work for a company that appreciates your skill and creativity.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your feet on the street. They know more than you think.

    I have been working at Comcast Spotlight

    Pros

    Freedom of schedule, friendly co workers, benefits, great company.

    Cons

    expensive (but great) product that most small businesses cannot afford. Heavy emphasis on selling digital product that most companies don't trust yet. Pressure to hit budget, low base salary. This job is for someone who truly loves to get out on the road, or on the phone and prospect for new business.

    Advice to Management

    Be more involved with day to day activities of AE's and help come up with solutions. Raise base salary.
