    Pros

    Fun atmosphere, free perks, unsupervised, & not micromanaged.

    Cons

    Training was insufficient, it cost me my job. People seem to leave/transfer to other departments ( in droves) every time new managers are placed. I know now to fear the words" reorganize the department."

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training. People that fear losing their jobs to incoming personnel will needlessly sabotage new personnel.

    Pros

    There'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.

    Cons

    Economy 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 Management

    Think 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.
