    I worked at CBS Outdoor as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I was a freelancer, so the work was flexible, which I appreciated.

    Cons

    Management was nwilling to even consider negotiations, even in the face of overwhelming evidence that their contract terms were unfeasible and outdated.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't be so stubborn and set in your ways. Listen to your employees' and freelancers' needs and negotiate in good faith as necessary to keep a balance of profitability and productive happiness.

    Pros

    They offer great benefits, 401K, home office environment with full equipment

    Cons

    No training, no management interaction along the way, no goals or accountability of them, very antiquated database, and no database to manage customers and contacts. Will hire you and suggest you will make about 15-20K in commissions first year on top of salary, and it's not attainable. Plan to live on your base salary. Will move you to a much lower draw on your 1 year anniversary date with much higher goals.
