Great products to sell, fun and creative staff

Account Executive (Current Employee) Baltimore, MD

ProsLots of room for advancement, I have been with the company for 7years (started right out of college) and have held several positions. Advertising solutions work really well for customers and we have a huge portfolio of options to present to advertisers. Most managers are great and hardworking. Lots of freedom- I work from home some days- my manager does not micromanage. It's a large office with a very diverse staff. Lots of opportunities to be involved- either at work or with the community. Can take clients to games, events, ect. AWESOME benefits.

ConsLarge office- lots of competition for best books of business, categories. Lots of paperwork (it is a newspaper) they should be able to streamline the ad entry process.

Advice to Senior ManagementThey roll out new products - special sections too fast- sometimes we do not have enough time to present it to everyone or enough training. Some of the managers need to focus more on the bottom line- selling- and not the administrative stuff- luckily my manager is not that way. More communication. What is the reason why we are changing something or launching something new? More updates on direction of company.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
