Pros

Great place to learn and lots of opportunities to get very involved with the local market and various businesses. Relationships with CEOs and business owners as well as agencies are forged and grow. Your sales skills and ability to prioritize will strengthen. The support staff and some managers are caring and encouraging, especially to young salespeople.
The marketing ideas and events that come from CBS Baltimore are brilliant.

Cons

Difficult to have a work life balance, some managers tend to criticize without offering constructive tips, especially to novice sales people. Lots of monotonous paperwork to fill out daily and rules seem to constantly change.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

If the sales are there, don't micromanage and try a little more encouragement!

    Pros

    great corporate brand, a lot of very smart & good people in the field, great benefits, creative environment, flexible work schedules.

    Cons

    too many "initiatives" pushed down from corporate, lack of sales strategy makes environment very reactive especially during economic/industry meltdown, bogged down in compliance processes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better communication from corporate, less cookie cutter sales initiatives

    Pros

    The prestige of the brands and the reach into major metro markets -- why else would you work for a giant media company? It's all about being the in Big Leagues, and CBS has some great stations.

    Cons

    The radio industry in general is suffering, and CBS is milking the stations for all their worth. Presumably before shutting them down or selling them off. The career options don't look good, because,well, it's radio.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Explain how CBS is different than the numbnuts at Clear Channel. Make us proud again.
