    Pros

    Good Benefits, time off, Company has a solid reputation from its TV visibility

    Cons

    Lack of accountability from any department. Everyone acts like they are in enemy camps and the client suffers in the end. Ads don't run, copy is wrong, accounting leaves orders on desks that need more information and don't tell the sales people. Usually this is on purpose. They then leave them to explain the inexplicable reasons to their client as to why their commercials are not airing or wrong or promotions are not occurring as promised.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Show some leadership and start making people accountable to the client! Respect your sales employees as professionals not package schleppers. Give sales initiatives more than 5 minutes to see if they work before moving on to another equally useless effort. The sky is not falling everyday! Automotive sales week anyone?

    Rollercoaster ride, annual management changes and commission structure changes

    I worked at CBS Radio

    Pros

    If you work hard, and hit your numbers, you have a lot of freedom

    Cons

    If you are not hitting your numbers be prepared to be majorly micro-managed. Charge back policy is B.S. If client doesn't pay company in 90 days, they take the commission back from you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have a consistent postive message, rather than concentrating on the negative. Postively motivate rather than motivating by saying, "If you don't hit your budget, we lower your commission" Make positive goals.
