Hard work & High reward

Senior Account Executive (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

I have been working at CBS Radio

ProsThere's opportunity to make a lot of money and see your income grow exponentially year over year when you put in long hours and hard work. Great managers at top stations in the SF market who want to see their people succeed. Open communication is welcomed. Great benefits, 401K match, health fairs, etc. Fantastic office location in San Francisco, easy to get to freeways for appointments. As you prove yourself, you'll be given billing accounts that get you to a base and your job is to keep getting new business to continue to pay yourself more and watch that income grow. Music stations have cool appearances by artists, it's just trying to find the time to go and check them out during work hours that's tough.

ConsEconomy is slow and there's a lot of pressure to get local CIA direct clients on the books. There are many objectives and budgets to hit: spot, digital display, digital place pages, digital offers, non traditional revenue for events, etc. It feels as if there's always some new initiative around the corner to focus on. There's so much to do for one lone AE who's on 100% commission: maintain current accounts, prospect and work new accounts, check paperwork, write proposals, collect outstanding bills, go to events, maintain relationships with clients, check and make sure digital campaigns are optimized, follow up on pending proposals, make changes, work on group pitches, it's a real challenge. This job is not for the weak. Expenses are paltry at best and need pre approval.

Advice to Senior ManagementThink about restructuring sales peoples' pay model. Most new media job offer a chunky base with commission that comparable to what a senior AE makes in radio. Think about dividing up responsibilities among AE's for the different initiatives. We feel stretched thin in trying to reach all goals.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
