    I have been working at CQ Roll Call full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Respected name around DC - Quality reporting tha its stuck in an inferior service

    Cons

    - CQ is driven by the SVP of Sales, however leadership has not seen real world market conditions since the Clinton administration - Vulgar, crass and uneducated leadership amongst the sales teams - seriously if I hear one more reference about smoking pot or about how you used to be cool in the 80s I'll shoot myself - Senior management does nothing to leverage their titles and connections for company growth - you know how some management attends leadership events? Not these guys - Unrealistic understanding of what clients want and need, development is driven by their "gut feelings" with no real business intelligence - Advancement is based upon how much the like you in the sales department, not your performance or talent level - Zero job stability or personal happiness - Management has no lives and expect you to suffer along with them - Leadership is accomplished through intimidation with no tangible market conditions to support their "hunches"

    Advice to Management

    Hang it up guys, you're painfully behind the times and have lost the respect of those who work for you. Intimidation and threats are no way to run what once was a world class organization and until this is realized you'll continue to lose your market share. national
